Product Description

Slightly bigger than Taylor’s Grand Auditorium body style, the Grand Symphony 816e yields a rich and powerful sound without sacrificing bell-like articulation. It makes a potent strummer, and dynamic fingerstylists will enjoy the thick, full-bodied character of the notes. Voicing enhancements for 2014 include richer tone with more low-end rumble.

Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Element fingerboard inlay, smoky ebony fingerboard, and Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.

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.
