Taylor 816ce Builder Edition
Taylor Master Luthier, Andy Powers, has applied his magic touch to the GS "Grand Symphony" shape and has turbo charged the tone and playability and has yet again "taken it to 11"
The Taylor Builders Edition 816ce is destined to become another classic guitars in the Taylor Line-up.
The Builders Edition 816ce celebrates the debut of Andy Powers reimagined Grand Symphony, now powered by V-Class bracing. In adapting the V-Class framework for the GS, Andy also modified the body design to give it a more distinctive sonic identity, something truer to its name, capable of producing an airier, more complex, "symphonic" acoustic sound. The new body incorporates a soundport cutaway, a scoop in the treble-side shoulder that houses an off-axis sound port. The ports sloped position, together with V-Class bracing, produces a rich, high-fidelity voice with a unique acoustic dispersion pattern. The guitar also has incredible touch sensitivity, helped by a shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length and light-gauge (.012-.053) strings. Together, all these elements work together to generate an expansive and fluid voice that radiates out multi-directionally, creating a natural reverb-like effect and filling a room with sound.
Appointments include new mother-of-pearl Windansea fretboard/peghead inlays, maple binding, rosewood top purfing, and ES2 electronics. The soundport cutaway features West African ebony sourced from Taylors Crelicam mill in Cameroon. The guitar ships with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
