The Taylor 616ce Grand Symphony is a cutaway acoustic-electric guitar that features the distinctive blend of big leaf maple and Sitka spruce. These tonewoods create a bright, crystalline timbre with strong projection and warm overtones. It's a combination that truly 'cuts through'. The 616ce Grand Symphony is adorned with pearl leaf pattern fingerboard inlays, gold-plated Taylor tuners, and an abalone rosette. Equipped with Taylor Expression System electronics and a Venetian cutaway that gives full fretboard access, the 616ce guitar has the tools to shine in any music venue.

Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the Grand Symphony guitar 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.

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

The finish used to create the Taylor 616ce guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

first Taylor

By john

from Columbia, MO

This is the first Taylor I have purchased. Instrument plays and sounds as nice as it looks. Was surprized at the full low range that came with the expected crisp high end on this Maple guitar.

best taylor ever felt

By alex damian

from las vegas,nv

So i was at guitar center today around 5. looked at the 414 and the 314 ce by taylor deciding witch one wis better. 414 seemed better. but at the end still left undecided. i went into a seperate room where i saw this guitar. THe polish on it, and the light reflicting on it caught my eye . i starting to play it. best sound i ever heard and very good gloss finsih. and i like the little flowers on it to indicate the fret numbers best experience of my life. so now. as i am a bust boy getting 100 a week. i am saving up JUST for this guitar. it spoke to me, and i bet it will for you too!
