816ce 2013

The flagship series of our acoustic/electric line traces back to Bob Taylor’s first rosewood guitars, which helped establish a modern acoustic guitar sound. The Grand Symphony 816ce features a rich, dynamic voice with potent depth and sustain across the tonal spectrum, especially in the lower mids. Refined appointments on the 2013 edition include curly maple binding around the body, fretboard and peghead, a pearl fretboard inlay, an abalone rosette, and abalone dot bridge pins.
