The Evolution of Maple

In stock

Many players consider maple to be a love-it-or-hate-it tonewood—until now. Taylor's 600 Series features Big Leaf maple as you've never heard it before, revoiced by master guitar designer Andy Powers to produce more low-end presence, warmth, and tonal breadth. The result is a lineup of acoustic guitars boasting solid maple back and sides paired with spruce tops, offering a uniquely player-reflective experience with a sound that responds differently to every pair of hands. Torrefied spruce tops add depth and projection, and V-Class bracing punches up more volume and sustain. Maple's clarity and articulation make the 600 Series a great choice for fingerstyle players or lead guitarists, but virtually all players will appreciate their versatility and visual beauty.


Recently reintroduced after our redesign of the commanding Grand Orchestra body shape, the 618e offers an experience unlike any other in the Taylor line. This model features our largest body style made with solid Big Leaf maple and Sitka spruce, resulting in a vibrant, warm, transparent sound that's uniquely reflective of each individual player's stylistic quirks and technique. Boasting an appointment package reserved for Grand Orchestra models, the 618e sports Mission fretboard and peghead inlays in mother-of-pearl, maple binging with koa purfling, a single-ring paua rosette, and a glossy Antique Blonde finish treatment. It ships with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
