For a while maple might have been a bit misrepresented in the acoustic world, developing a reputation for being too bright for some, and lacking the richer character of other classic tonewoods. But historically, maple has actually been one of the classic tonewoods for other stringed instruments in the violin family. Taylor has revoiced its maple 600s to re-introduce its true voice to guitar players, and the results have been amazing. If you have preconceptions about maple, check them at the door, because these guitars deliver plenty of the warmth, depth, richness and sustain your ears crave in an acoustic guitar, without losing the clarity and transparency that allows maple to reflect the player and fit into a mix with other instruments.
We have been incredibly impressed with Taylor’s Revoiced 600 series. The 610e has More warmth and bass than any other Taylor Dreadnought model, and will be just the thing for those with doubts of brightness.
Cosmetically, the 600s are gorgeous guitars too, the brown sugar stain on the back and sides, and the Torrefied sitka top add to the overall vibe of the guitar and match the tone perfectly.
