Slightly bigger than Taylor’s Grand Auditorium body style, the Grand Symphony 816ce 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 fretboard inlay, smoky ebony fretboard, and Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.
