The Taylor 418e is perfect for Solo performers looking for an expansive palette of sonic colors and textures, with the extra low range presence and power thanks to the Grand Orchestra body.

Taylor's biggest body shape redefines the playing experience of a big acoustic guitar by blending power and complexity with balance and responsiveness. Unlike other large-bodied guitars, the GO not only welcomes strong strumming, but also responds readily to players with a lighter touch. The 418e model forgoes the 'venetian' cutaway for a rounded, traditional shape around the neck joint, so strummers that don't require access to the upper frets may prefer the classic styling and negligible tone boost.

Produces an intricate blend of power and tonal complexity

A rarer wood type, the African Ovangkol tonewood has a wonderfully layered finish, almost reminiscant of a flamed maple, with golden brown hues with a wide range of variegation. Due to the rosewood-esque properties of Ovangkol, it exhibits a slight boost around the bass tonal range and helps to enhance the natural low-mid power of the Grand Orchestra body. A classic sitka spruce top seals the package  

The 400 series employs understated appointments, including white binding and progressive pearloid dots, dialling down the flash in favour of a clean, modern look that fits any musical setting. The Expression System 2 pickup, upgraded on new incarnations of Taylor Electro Acoustics, delivers one of the world's most authentic electronic systems and really helps carry the natural tonal response to your live sound.
