Overview

516 (2014)

Singer-songwriters are often drawn to our 500 Series because mahogany yields its inspiring tone easily, with a breathy midrange and a wonderful balance of warmth, clarity and complexity. Our larger body shapes (Grand Symphony and Dreadnought models) feature tops of Engelmann spruce, while the Grand Auditorium and Grand Concert models sport cedar tops. The refined appointment package features a laser-engraved Deco Diamond inlay scheme, faux tortoise shell binding, and a dark body stain that honors mahogany’s enduring heritage.

FEATURES

Grand Symphony

This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Engelmann Spruce

Engelmann has a mature tone and yields a slightly richer midrange than Sitka.
