This grand symphony is rich and responsive across the entire sonic spectrum.
The Taylor 716ce Grand Symphony is a cutaway acoustic-electric guitar that combines the time-honored tone of Indian rosewood and western red cedar. This pairing is the mainstay of nearly every high-end guitar builder. Taylor sources the finest quality of each wood to deliver all the clarity, sustain, and bass response you would expect from this classic combination. Equipped with the Taylor Expression System and cutaway, the 716ce guitar has the tools to shine in any music venue.
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the Grand Symphony guitar is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
The finish used to create the Taylor 716ce guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
