This 2014 Taylor 816ce is a Grand Symphony size, giving you an expanded, powerful low end while delivering beautiful, clear note articulation. This has also recently benefited from Andy Powers' redesign of the entire 800 Series, and includes new bracing for amazing tone, hide and fish glue construction for better resonance and aesthetic upgrades (check out the Rosewood pickguard) that make it unique and a modern classic. This is well suited to strummers and fingerstyle players, and is outfitted already with Taylor's great (and easy to use) Taylor Expression System 2, so you can just plug in whenever you're gigging and your true sound is right there, just more so.
This 816 gives you the classic combination of a Sitka Spruce top with unique and truly stunning Rosewood back and sides in the powerful Grand Symphony body style. Playability is outstanding with a comfortable 1 3/4" nut width on an Ebony fretboard, graced with the beautiful mother-of-pearl Element inlay work. The Taylor 816ce is a really great-sounding, comfortable acoustic with an elegant appearance. This comes with a Deluxe hard case and full set up to your specs from our luthiers.
