This is part of the First Edition run of the Grand Orchestra series and are limited to only 100 in each model. 518 is in Excellent Condition with only mild fretwear. Very dynamic Taylor that responds very well to touch. Great fingerstyle guitar but also has a big round sound for those huge strumming chords. Comes with the original case in excellent condition.
Taylor's newest body shape is the largest, most powerful shape to date! What began as a rethinking of the traditional Jumbo turned into an all-new guitar that delivers the engrossing power that has drawn players to larger body shapes for many years. What separates the Grand Orchestra from the traditional Jumbo is that you have a similar size and frequency spread but with a more balanced overall tone. Maybe the biggest improvement is that the Grand Orchestra is much more player-friendly than traditional large-body guitars. A smaller soundboard requires less energy to get it moving on your behalf, and larger soundboards require the player to play harder to excite the top. The new Grand Orchestra offers the benefit of a huge-sounding guitar without needing to hammer on it to make great music. It's a much more Sensitive Brute than the traditional Jumbo.
