Overview

916ce (2016)

An array of nuanced voicing refinements have infused this Taylor Grand Symphony — already known for having a powerful sound — with even more tonal horsepower, extra low-end rumble, and a richer overall response, all without sacrificing balance or top-end articulation. A comprehensive aesthetic makeover preserves the status of our 900 Series as our ultra-premium class of rosewood guitars, featuring intricate appointments. A contoured armrest showcases the highest level of Taylor craftsmanship and offers players an elegant and ergonomic feature that makes strumming and picking more comfortable than ever. Aesthetic details include a smooth fusion of natural materials — wood and shell — in the form of ebony binding, koa purfling, and a mix of abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay and trim work. Additional features include a soft Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup for superb amplified tone. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Features

Grand Symphony

This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.

Indian Rosewood

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

Sitka Spruce

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

Expression System® 2

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

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.
