Redesigned maple and rosewood models debut with V-Class bracing and a shared aesthetic update! The 818e features back and sides of solid Indian rosewood, a Sitka spruce top, a mahogany neck, and a rosewood pickguard. Rosewood’s rich harmonic overtones, to- gether with the Grand Orchestra body, add up to big, lush, high-fidelity voice.



One of the Taylors we are most excited about for 2020, the return of the Big Boy, the Grand Orchestra is back! This guitar is a cannon. We absolutely love this instrument and hope that you will revel in its glory as we have!

The 818e features back and sides of solid Indian rosewood, a Sitka spruce top, a mahogany neck, and a rosewood pickguard. Rosewood’s rich harmonic overtones, to- gether with the Grand Orchestra body, add up to big, lush, high-fidelity voice.

Newly revoiced with V-ClassTM bracing, Taylor’s biggest, deepest body shape now unleashes a more commanding voice than ever. The V-Class framework harnesses the Grand Orchestra’s huge air capacity to produce a sound that’s deep and powerful, yet with incredible touch sensitivity and impeccable intonation. Players who crave a big, wall-of-sound acoustic tone and like to tune down will love this guitar. Choose from two models: the maple/spruce 618e and the rosewood/spruce 818e. Standard specs include a 25-1⁄2” scale length and 1-3⁄4” nut width.

Both models share a new appointment package: a Mission inlay pattern in mother- of-pearl and grained ivoroid, koa fretboard/ peghead purfling, maple binding with koa/ ivoroid top purfling, a paua rosette with koa/ivoroid purfling, Taylor nickel tuners, and an Antique Blonde color treatment (top for 818e; full body and neck for 618e), gloss-finish body, and ES2 electronics. Each guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case with a beautifully textured Western Floral pattern.
