Slightly bigger than Taylors Grand Auditorium body style, the Grand Symphony 816ce yields a powerful and rich sound without sacrificing bell-like articulation. It makes a potent strummer, and dynamic fingerstylists will enjoy the thick, full-bodied character of the notes. As part of Taylors 800 Series revoicing package for 2014, the GS will sound even richer with more low-end rumble. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylors new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
