816ce DLX (2018)

Price: Discontinued / Series: 800
816ce DLX (2018)

This deluxe edition 816ce expands on the playability, power, and aesthetic appeal of our standard Grand Symphony 816ce. Built with a solid Sitka spruce top (voiced with Adirondack spruce bracing) 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 enhanced volume and projection. This edition is detailed with our finest appointments, including a radius armrest for extra playing comfort, premium Gotoh 510 tuners (featuring a 21:1 gear ratio for ultra-smooth tuning control), and a distinctive Florentine-style cutaway, making this a truly striking instrument for the stage and the studio.

Discover the features that make this guitar unique

Grand Symphony


This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.

Sitka Spruce

Top Woods

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


The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Florentine Cutaway


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.
