The Music Zoo gained exclusive access to Andy Powers' prototypes of the new 600 series. Each model is unique and may have features unique to only that particular guitar. The new Taylor maple 600 series has been enhanced with new design features to bring their historically bright tone into a richer, warmer, and more complex voice. With the 614e prototype, Taylor has updated the Sitka Spruce Top by using torrefaction, which is a roasting process that offers better resonance and responsiveness – it also provides a slightly darker cedar-like complexion. A new customized bracing scheme and wood thickness brings out some new dimensions which produce enhanced warmth, balance, and sustain, while the maple specific bracing profile for the backs enhance responsiveness.
Cosmetically, the 600 series prototypes offer a special hand-rubbed Brown Sugar stain giving it a rich, vintage look without adding extra thickness to the finish. Another great feature is the use of protein glues for the bracing and bridge, which optimizes the sound transfer between powertrain components. A gorgeous striped Ebony pickguard adds both protection and visual contrast. A behind the saddle piezo pickup design with Expression System 2 pickup results in an amplified acoustic tone that’s simple to use, just plug and play!
