The new Taylor 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 618e, Taylor has updated the Sitka Spruce Top by using torrefaction, a roasting process that offers better resonance and responsiveness and provides a slightly darker, Cedar-like complexion. A new customized bracing scheme utilizing Adirondack Spruce brings out some new dimensions which produce enhanced warmth, balance, and sustain, while the Maple-specific bracing profile for the backs enhance responsiveness. Cosmetically, this 618 offers a special hand-rubbed Brown Sugar stain giving it a rich, vintage look without adding extra thickness to the finish. The Abalone rosette is edge with Ebony, and is beautifully complemented by an exclusive Striped Ebony pickguard. Another great feature is the use of protein glues for the bracing and bridge, which optimizes the sound transfer between powertrain components. 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! This is a used example and it's in excellent overall condition no notable damage.
