The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Taylor Redesigned 618e Grand Orchestra Electro-Acoustic Guitar

The Redesigned Taylor 618e is part of Taylor's effort to revoice the 600 series and produce a warm, rich tone from their maple acoustic guitars. From specially aged spruce tops that produce a played-in sound from day 1 to custom-calibrated bracing that unleashes more volume, low-end warmth and sustain, Taylor's new 600s give players a multi-dimensional musical voice that responds wonderfully to every playing style.

Versatilie Performer

The Taylor 618e has always been a fantastically versatile performer that is great for players of many different genres and styles. The Redesigned Grand Orchestra Electro Acoustic offers an array of tone-enhancing refinements that transform Maple's tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice.

2015 Design Nuances

New for 2015, the Taylor 618e features design nuances that will change how it looks and feels. The use of protein glues optimizes the tonal transfer between key wood components and an ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. The back of the guitar features a beautiful voilin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish thanks to the new, hand-rubbed "Brown Sugar" stain on the back and sides.

Great Looks and Sound

Enjoy a more dynamic and expressive musical tool with 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. Taylor's Expression System 2 Electronics are great for those times when you need to project your sound to larger venues and audiences. 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. The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
