Grand Orchestra

The Grand Orchestra body shape features a slightly larger an deeper body, helping to produce a powerful low-end response. The new bracing optimises the movement of the soundboard, providing a louder and more complex tone with incredible sustain. Unlike other big-bodied guitars, this grand orchestra model is ideal for strong strumming styles as well as players with a lighter touch.

Premium Tonewood

The sitka spruce top wood is one of the most commonly used wood for guitar tops. The combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, providing crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Perfect for all styles of guitar and players. The guitars ovangkol body offers similar tones to rosewood, creating sweet tones with sparkling highs and thick lows. The body tonewood has a very full midrannge and is perfect for adding sustain and resonance to the strings, creating a very big sound.

Unique Bracing Pattern

A significant factor behind the incredible sound of the 418e is the forward shifted bracing pattern with a relief rout. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling more of the guitar top to vibrate, delivering maximum tonal quality and projection.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom-designed ''professional audio''-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness.
