716e (2014)
Price: $3,698 US MSRP / Series: 700
716e (2014)

The rosewood/spruce Grand Symphony 716e unleashes a potent all-around sound with deep bass, meaty midrange, and equally thick trebles, delivering impressive balance across the tonal spectrum. Players with a dynamic picking or strumming attack will love the responsiveness to both a light and heavy touch. A warm Vintage Sunburst top and neck refine a classic throwback aesthetic, while grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and grained ivoroid Heritage Diamond fretboard inlays complete the look. Taylor’s proprietary Expression® System 2 acoustic electronics deliver exceptional amplified tone in a reliable plug-and-play package
