The cutaway acoustic/electric 316ce features Taylor’s Grand Symphony body shape, which responds with a powerful voice characterized by a rich low end, thick treble notes, and impressive volume and sustain. Sapele’s natural treble sparkle is balanced by the bigger body’s tonal output, making the guitar a robust strummer and lively flatpicker with broad dynamic range. Appointments include black binding, a black pickguard, Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, 3-ring rosette, and satin-finish back and sides with a gloss-finish spruce top. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
