About This Listing

Taylor 2016 516ce Grand Symphony Cutaway ES2 Acoustic-Electric Guitar W/Case

Brand New Guitar with full Taylor Warranty! 2016 Model. Includes Hard Shell Case.

Mahogany’s meaty midrange and fundamental focus take on another level of boldness and depth, especially in the lower midrange, with the spruce-top Grand Symphony 516ce. The neo-vintage appointment package includes a grained ivoroid rosette, grained ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay. Features Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup.

Grand Symphony (GS)

 Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16 1/4" / Body Depth: 4 5/8"

The ultimate Taylor strummer.

The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers a rich, powerful acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn’t come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-Strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.
