What sets this guitar apart from the rest?
BODY: INDIAN ROSEWOOD: The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
TOP: SITKA SPRUCE: The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
SHAPE: GRAND SYMPHONY: Slightly bigger than Taylor’s Grand Auditorium body style, the Grand Symphony 816ce yields a powerful and rich sound without sacrificing bell-like articulation.
ELECTRONICS: ES2: The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
