The Grand Orchestra has gained an impressive reputation being the largest body shape Taylor Guitars has to offer. With new design specifications, Taylor Guitars Master Builder Andy Powers has introduced 818e, a new version of the large-bodied classic for players of all styles.
A classic Taylor Guitars tonewood combination of a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides form the jumbo-esque body. Fitting comfortably in the hands of any player, the 818e plays easily by providing smooth travels up and down the ebony fretboard. The classic formula for a fine Taylor Guitars acoustic experience with quality construction standards. From there, the 818e takes off with newly added features for an acoustic guitar that takes another step forward.
Taylor Guitars V-Class bracing debuts in the Grand Orchestra shape with the 818e. The innovative, Taylor Guitars-exclusive bracing pattern adds resonance, sustain, and articulation to each chord strummed and note picked. A refined low-end blooms from the 818e with V-Class bracing for an immersive acoustic experience sure to attract not only fans of Taylor, but other acoustic aficionados as well. Along with the expressive, never before heard combination of the Grand Orchestra body shape and V-Class bracing, the 818e is equipped with the latest and dressed to the nines. Mother-of-pearl Mission inlays, maple binding, and a single-ring rosette top off the visual presentation of the 818e while Taylor Guitars Expression System 2 electronics bring the 818e to life onstage.
The Taylor Guitars 818e produces full and dynamic tones to make for a new Grand Orchestra experience. Catching attention with its impressive scale and accessing new Taylor voices with its updated architecture, the 818e will fit perfectly up front on the stage or in the center of a collection.
