This is the new for 2020 Builder's Edition 816ce Grand Symphony from Taylor! The 816ce highlights Taylor's design philosophies with a wonderfully contoured body, expansive acoustic tone, and player-focused enhancements. The ultimate playing experience begins with Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a Lutz spruce top, offering all the low-end warmth and sparkle you’d expect from the classic rosewood/spruce combination with additional bloom and resonance added by V-Class bracing. But this Builder’s Edition model truly shines in the details, starting with its most significant innovation: the soundport cutaway. Crafted to resemble a partial Florentine cutaway, the design keeps the guitar’s full back intact while still allowing easy access to the high-register frets. The additional soundhole adds a truly new dimension of acoustic sound, creating a wide-angle sound that would fit as well in a classical orchestra as it would a rock band or a fingerstyle solo act. The guitar has figured maple binding, chamfered edges and a rosewood edge trim along with a single-ring rosette crafted of green abalone. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe Western Floral hardshell case.
