Product Description

Featuring Taylor’s boldest, richest acoustic voice is the Taylor 816CE Grand Symphony Acoustic Electric Guitar with Case. Contemporary appointments include curly maple binding and a pearl fretboard inlay, which together add a splash of refined style. The flagship series of Taylor's acoustic-electric line traces back to Bob Taylor’s first rosewood guitars, which helped establish a modern acoustic guitar sound. The 816CE delivers fullness, volume and sustain as well as a robust sound that is also clear and responsive to fast picking run or a light fingerstyle touch.

Overall Rating
One of the best guitars I've ever played, including $10,000+ customs.
Your general opinion of this product.
The 800 series is a huge sweet spot in the Taylor product line. I compared the 814 and 816 and spent literally five hours playing both and listening to others play them. The 816 has the same treble snap and midrange warmth of the 814, perhaps even a bit warmer, with amazing bottom end. It's comparable to similarly priced Martin dreads, in my opinion, but you get the amazingly smooth cutaway for more comfortable playing and easy access to all of the frets instead of having to do finger gymnastics to get past 14. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase decision.
