Overall, the Taylor 816ce is a very cool guitar. Its powerful sound, along with Taylor’s legendary playability and Expression System 2 electronics, will undoubtedly please a wide variety of players." -Peghead Nation, November 2017 (Peghead nation is an online site that some consider the home of roots music instruction, gear, and news.
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 Florentine cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
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.
