    Product Description

    Elegant inlay work and Taylor’s finest sets of cocobolo and AA Sitka spruce make the PS16ce Presentation a visual masterpiece. The Grand Symphony body project bold, rich and beautiful tone to compliment the head-turning looks. A contoured ebony armrest blends beauty and playing comfort. Other high-end details include colorful paua edging, a cocobolo backstrap, and an elaborate Nouveau vine fretboard inlay complemented by elegant headstock torch and bridge inlays.

    Expression System 2 (ES2)
    The Taylor ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before.

    Together with Taylor’s custom-designed professional audio-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.

    Not only 'presents' well, but has presence
    What is your overall opinion of this product?
    The instrument is stunning in appearance and amazing in sound. Mostly play hogs because I like some decent punch in the mids, but had been wanting something a bit brighter and with more clarity, but without sounding brittle or cutting into the lows. To my ear, the cocobola/sitka combination on the P16ce—along with Andy's approach to voicing—puts this guitar dead center of the sweet spot I'd been looking for. It's responsive and comfortable to play, resonant without muddiness, and has great sustain. Even better, I can beat it half to death and it still sings without overloading.
