Taylor 816CE Grand Symphony First Edition Acoustic Electric

Item: TO816CEFE

Slightly bigger than Taylor’s Grand Auditorium body style, the Grand Symphony 816CE yields a powerful and rich sound without sacrificing bell-like articulation. It makes a potent strummer, and dynamic finger-stylists will enjoy the thick, full-bodied character of the notes. As part of Taylor’s 800 Series re-voicing package for 2014, the GS will sound even richer with more low-end rumble. Premium appointments include protein glues for bracing and bridge, maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled ebony fretboard, and the new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The best just got better!
