Win a magnificent Taylor 615 Jumbo guitar! (Retail $3,950). A signature quality of Big Leaf maple — besides its crisp, bright tone — is its ability to cut through on stage. As a result, you’ll find many 600 Series® guitars in live performance situations, easily able to hold their own with the rest of the band. The 600 Series is a visual standout, too:  this amazing guitar has a Sitka Spruce top, Big Leaf Maple back and sides, Cutaway and Expression System Pickup.
