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.
