The striking Big Leaf maple body wood used on the Taylor 618E has long been associated with a bright acoustic sound, but Taylor's 600 series maple guitars are been been refined by Taylor's Master Craftsmen to bring out greater warmth, richness and sustain.
Combines the big, bold tone of a full-sized guitar with the compact playability of an Orchestral Body
Maple guitars are known for their clear articulation and a level of transparency that enables the guitars to easily take on the personality of the player. Although maple has traditionally been characterised as a bright-sounding guitar wood with quick note decay, Taylor has brought significant tone-enhancing refinements to the 600 Series to elicit greater warmth, complexity and responsiveness. A sitka spruce top utilises a new 'Torrefied' bracing system, which produces an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance. A new, hand-rubbed â€œBrown Sugar" stain on the back and sides gives maple's striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish.
Taylor have laid out their revolutionary 'NT' neck design with Hard Rock Maple and a satin wood finish, which continues the gorgeous good looks of the rear body whilst making it very comfortable in the hand.
This premium quality instrument should be an immediate consideration for anyone wanting the big, bold tone of a full-sized electro acoustic but with the compact playability of a Orchestral body. Both live players and studio musicians will appreciate the unique midrange focus that maple delivers. Subtle finishing touches include Grained Ivoroid Wing inlays, ebony fingerboard and a Ebony/Grained Ivoroid/Abalone single ring rosette. Hard case included.
