The Taylor 2010 Spring Limited Edition 516ce Grand Symphony Acoustic-Electric Guitar showcases rich Tasmanian blackwood backs and sides. Known as a cousin of koa, blackwood shares koa's blend of midrange bloom, top end brightness, and overall tone that will sweetly mellow over time. The Grand Symphony 516ce is topped with Sitka spruce graced with ivoroid binding, an abalone rosette, and an all-gloss finish.
To celebrate spring's arrival, Taylor Guitars releases its always anticipated Spring Limited Edition acoustic-electrics. This year's Limiteds feature an exciting array of exotic tonewoods that are also visually stunning. The premium batch of blackwood used to craft the 516ce Grand Symphony displays an assortment of impressively figured backs and sides.
Introduced in 2006, the Taylor Grand Symphony (GS) is an original design from top to bottom”and the first new Taylor shape in over a decade. The Grand Symphony was a hit right out of the gate. Expect acoustic power with every note, with deep, piano-like bass, rich mids and clear, balanced highs”and plenty of volume. It's a whole new flavor of Taylor tone.
The Spring Limiteds are cutaway guitars armed with Taylor's popular and intuitive Expression System pickup. Each Limited Taylor guitar is shipped in its own hardshell case.
Taylor Expression System
The Taylor ES delivers an amplified tone that will satisfy the most demanding pro player, yet makes it simple for anyone to plug in and sound great. The Expression System incorporates three different magnetic sensors. Two strategically placed Dynamic Body Sensors affixed to the underside of the soundboard capture the complex nuances of the top's vibration, while a Dynamic String Sensor mounted beneath the fretboard extension registers string and neck vibration. The preamp boosts the pickup signal cleanly, without the need for artificial EQ "coloration". The balanced, low-impedance signal the Expression System produces can run direct into a mixer or PA in most situations, and is free of distortion at almost any volume. Three simple, unintrusive onboard control knobs preserve the aesthetic beauty of your Taylor, yet allow you to easily adjust the volume, bass, and treble to suit your personal preferences and performance environment. The payoff is in the purity of high-fidelity amplified tone, unprecedented dynamic range, and extraordinary resistance to feedback and distortion. It enables all of the expressive subtleties of your playing to come through, just the way you intended.
