Taylor Guitars NEW 600 Series Guitars
Taylor Guitars have always been known for their innovative design, and the new 600 series is no exception. They’re taking Maple instruments to a new sonic platform with many new upgrades, and new appointments that give it that sweet aesthetic look!
Maple Tonewoods: Maple has always been known as having a bright, clear sound. It’s been favored as a tonewood for many instruments, going back hundreds of years. And because of it’s sustainability, hopefully hundreds more! What Taylor Guitars have set out to do is broaden the tonal characteristics of this wood and give it new life.
Totally redesigned from the inside out, Taylor has brought some of the improvements from their new 800 series over to the 600’s including specific bracing to match the sonic properties of each individual body shape. The back and top have also been thinned out specifically to each body shape to achieve the right amount of stiffness.
Torrefied Spruce Tops: What is torrefication? Quite simply it’s a baking, or roasting process that reproduces the natural aging of wood. This allows for a richer, darker tone…and look. Have you ever seen a really old acoustic guitar with that golden look to the top? That’s what comes with age, and you get it now! Notice the darker complexion of the guitar on the right in the pic below.
Some other new features: Like the new 800 series, the new 600’s also feature some eye (and ear) catching improvements. Regular wood glue has been replaced by a protein glue which transfers volume and tone much better throughout the guitar. The gloss finish of the guitar has been thinned as well, allowing for greater overall vibration. Because the finish is so thin, the traditional spray color used in the past is no longer viable. Taylor switched to what they call the “Brown Sugar” hand rubbed stain reminiscent of the days of violins and cellos. And finally, new inlays, binding, and purfling add to the new look of the 600’s.
The new 600 series is available in the Grand Auditorium, Grand Concert, Grand Symphony, and Grand Orchestra.
