Rich, low-end warmth, scooped mids and top-end clarity where it counts - this traditionally styled guitar from Taylor has it all - tasteful aesthetics, tonal sophistication and seamless playability.

Bursting With Musical Character

As an honourable member of Taylor's 800 series of Rosewood/Spruce guitars, the 818e proudly displays its Grand Orchestra body shape - one of Taylors most notable shapes in terms of size, sound and power.

Taylor 818e Grand Orchestra Electro Acoustic V-Class Antique Blonde Features:

  • Traditional 'Jumbo' Grand Orchestra Shape with classic Non-Cutaway Design
  • Indian Rosewood Body with a Sitka Spruce Top
  • Antique Blonde top finish treatment that adds a charming glow
  • Expression System 2 Electronics to enhance performance dynamics
  • V-Class Bracing improves sustain, volume and intonation
  • Tropical Mahogany Neck, topped with an Ebony Fretboard
  • Includes Deluxe Hard Shell Case in beautiful Western Floral Design

Traditional Construction

Built using robust Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, this earthy wood adds warmth to every note.

With a Sitka Spruce on top, both kinds of wood melt together tonally to produce a silky natural tone with no shortage of low-end warmth.

V-Class Bracing

Accommodated in this traditional design is Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing design.

The carefully crafted internal framework assists in boosting the volume of the 818e, improving the sustain and resonation of notes and eliminates much of the interference that causes poor intonation - for all-round better playability!

Sophisticated Electronics

Thanks to Taylor's breakthrough Expression System 2 (ES2), the 818e can deliver immaculately detailed tone, even when plugged in.

Equipped with a behind-the-saddle pickup, the discrete location enables a more dynamic range of acoustic tones, amplified impeccably through Taylors custom-designed professional-grade preamp to faithfully convey the voice of your Taylor guitar through a PA, through an amplifier or directly into your recording software.
