Taylor’s 418e blends the power and tonal complexity of our big-bodied Grand Orchestra with the broad frequency range of African ovangkol and spruce. The result is a sweeping, dynamic voice that’s brimming with detail. As big and bold as the sound is, the Grand Orchestra is incredibly balanced and responsive for a big body, making it a surprisingly versatile instrument that can also answer the call for lush fingerstyle arrangements. Clean, modern appointments include crisp white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a three-ring rosette, with Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics providing professional grade amplified sound for performing or recording.
Taylor’s biggest body shape redefines the playing experience of a big acoustic guitar by blending power and complexity with balance and responsiveness. Unlike other large-bodied guitars, the GO not only welcomes strong strumming, but also responds readily to players with a lighter touch.
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.
An African relative of rosewood, ovangkol shares many of rosewood’s tonal properties, including a wide spectrum from lows and highs. Differences include a slightly fuller midrange and a bright treble response resembling that of koa.
Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
There’s a lot to be said for the clean, traditional look of a non-cutaway acoustic guitar. If you don’t plan to play in the upper register, which is made more accessible with a cutaway, or if you simply prefer the symmetrical hourglass contours of a guitar, a non-cutaway model is a great option.
