This grand symphony has it all - quality, beauty, and unsurpassed tone.

The Taylor 816ce Grand Symphony acoustic-electric guitar features the classic combination of a Sitka spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides to create its remarkably well-balanced, open tone. As with other Grand Symphony models, the 816ce has a very balanced output from top to bottom. Bass notes are strong and tightly focused. The midrange is complex and harmonically rich while retaining articulation. Treble notes ring out with clarity tempered by the warmth of the rosewood. MOP 800 series fingerboard inlays, deluxe maple binding, and an intricately designed abalone rosette offer visuals to match this guitar's formidable sound. The Taylor Expression System electronics are worthy of the 816ce's unplugged sound, faithfully transmitting it to your amp or the venue's audio system. The Venetian cutaway gives complete access to the fingerboard during those high-note solos.While this Grand Symphony guitar has similarities to Taylor's Grand Auditorium models, it has its own distinct sound and shape. The body profile brings out slightly emphasized bass response. The broader lower bout and a higher, fuller waist produce high volume that sustains bass notes while creating complex mids and sweetly tempered 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 816ce 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.
