Taylor Guitars “New 600 Series” – Maple’s Revival
 
Luthier Andy Powers discusses the use of maple in the new Taylor 600 series guitars.
February 17, 2015

Taylor has applied its latest tone-enhancing design strokes to the maple 600 Series. The result is a transformation of maple’s historically bright tone profile into a richer, warmer, more complex voice. Players can expect a more musical, more versatile guitar experience.

Torrefied Spruce Tops
A special roasting technique accelerates the aging process, yielding the rich and responsive tonal character of an older guitar. The technique gives the tops a slightly darker complexion that resembles cedar.

Custom Voicing
The bracing and wood thicknesses are optimized for each shape and for maple’s unique properties to boost the warmth and sustain.

Tone-Enhancing Protein Glue
Used with the bracing and bridge, the glue’s properties improve the tonal transfer through the top and back.

Thin Finish
Taylor’s ultra-thin 3.5-mil gloss finish minimizes damping and enhances the responsiveness and volume.

Hand-Rubbed Stain
The “Brown Sugar” color gives the figured maple a deep, vintage look without adding any material thickness.

New Appointments
Refined details include grained ivoroid Wings inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding, and a striped ebony pickguard.

Expression System® 2
Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle piezo pickup captures maple’s rich new voice in a more linear and dynamic way.

Models Currently Available:
Grand Auditorium 614e, 614ce, Grand Symphony 616e, 616ce, 12-string 656ce, Grand Orchestra 618
