816ce DLX
Price: $4,299 USD / Series: 800
816ce DLX

The 816ce returns in 2017 with a deluxe edition that expands on the playability and balance of our standard Grand Orchestra model. Built with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides, the 816ce DLX yields a robust tone profile flavored by shimmering highs and rich low-end warmth, along with the extra volume and projection offered by the slightly larger body shape. This edition is detailed with a set of our finest appointments, including an ebony armrest for enhanced comfort and the sought-after Florentine cutaway, making this a truly striking instrument for the stage and the studio.

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Indian Rosewood

Body Woods

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Expression System® 2

Florentine Cutaway

Cutaways

A Florentine cutaway comes to a sharp point, creating a horn-like shape. It is more complex and labor-intensive than the Venetian, and is commonly used with our Grand Orchestra body style and, more recently, on Grand Symphony models in our 500 Series models and up.
