Taylor Builder's Edition 816ce Acoustic/Electric, Natural
Taylor Builder's Edition 816ce Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Natural
Leading the way for the newly redesigned Grand Symphony body shape, the beautiful Taylor Builder's Edition 816ce acoustic/electric guitar highlights the transformative Taylor design philosophy with lovingly crafted contours, an expansive acoustic tone, and player-focused enhancements. It comes in a Natural silent satin finish, complete with a single-ring green-abalone rosette, a Black pickguard and ultra-precise Gotoh 510 tuners in antique Gold.
The ultimate playing experience begins with Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a Lutz spruce top, offering all the low-end warmth and sparkle you'd expect from the classic rosewood/spruce combination with additional bloom and resonance added by V-Class bracing. But this Builder's Edition model truly shines in the details, starting with its most significant innovation: the soundport cutaway. Crafted to resemble a partial Florentine cutaway, the design keeps the guitar's full back intact while still allowing easy access to the high-register frets. This adds a new dimension of acoustic sound, creating a wide-angle sound that would fit as well in a classic orchestra as it would in a rock band or a fingerstyle solo act.
For aesthetics, this model has been appointed with a host of player-centric features, including figured maple binding with chamfered edges and rosewood trim, Windansea inlays in shell and mother-of-pearl, and a soft rounded V-profile tropical mahogany neck that shows off a West African ebony fingerboard for excelled playability. The ES2 electronics system allows you to plug-and-play anywhere with ease, adding versatility to the quality craftsmanship.
The Taylor Builder's Edition 816ce has a piece of stunning quality for every player, and it's ready for you to witness its endless capabilities today from Replay Guitar Exchange! As always, feel free to contact our store for more details, or with any questions.
