Beautiful Taylor 816ce Grand Symphony model guitar.
The award winning 8-series was redesigned in 2014 and Taylor totally struck gold with the appointments. The guitars offer unparalled acoustic and plugged in tones. Let's not forget the trademark Taylor playability.
The Grand Symphony models are sometimes forgotten about, as the 814ce Grand Auditorium shape still continues to be the best seller, but the larger GS Shape just has a massively punchy tone and full low end and is always comfortable to play.
Here's what Taylor have to say about the 816ce:
"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 fingerstylists will enjoy the thick, full-bodied character of the notes. As part of Taylor's 800 Series revoicing package for 2014, the GS will sound even richer with more low-end rumble. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor's new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case."
