Quality build with premiere woods and electronics make the Taylor 516ce an all-around triumph.
With exceptionally warm and articulate tones, tropical mahogany has established itself among the tonewood elite. Many consider these striking all glossy guitars the ultimate fingerpickers. Plugged in, the Taylor 516ce Mahogany/Spruce Grand Symphony Acoustic-Electric Guitar will sing out the subtlety of your style loud and clear.
Spruce/Tropical American Mahogany
This Taylor 516ce Acoustic-Electric guitar employs mahogany back and sides with a spruce top to get a bold yet refined voice that can shift gears with ease.
Grand Symphony (GS)
Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the GS is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper, more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain, in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.
Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System amplifies your 516ce acoustic-electric with an unrivaled, natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally-clean amplified sound. It’s your tone. Amplified.
