Taylor Guitars 600 Series
Nearly every aspect of Taylor’s maple 600 Series guitars has been refined to broaden their musical range and enhance their visual appeal. The result is maple like you’ve never heard it before: rich and warm, with a multi-dimensional musical voice that responds wonderfully to every playing style. Our hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain adds a deep, luxurious hue to maple’s beautiful figure. In every way, our 600s reveal the finest a maple guitar can offer.
Our maple/spruce Grand Auditorium has always been a versatile performer, and this edition boasts an array of tone-enhancing refinements that transform maple’s tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice. As a result, players can expect an even more dynamic and expressive musical tool. Design nuances include a maple-specific back bracing profile and a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction, a method of roasting the wood to produce an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness. Other touches include the use of protein glues to optimize the tonal transfer between key wood components and an ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
