Taylor 616CE Grand Symphony Cutaway Solid Wood Acoustic/Electric Guitar Natural
Taylor 616CE Grand Symphony shape yields a beefy acoustic sound with extra low-end horsepower. Coupled with the package of tone-enhancing strokes brought to the maple/spruce 600 Series, players can expect impressive richness, volume and sustain. Design nuances include a back bracing profile that optimized for maple and a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction to produce an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness. Protein glues and an ultra-thin gloss finish minimize tonal dampening. A hand-rubbed Brown Sugar stain on the back and sides gives maple striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include grained ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
With a slightly larger footprint than the Grand Auditorium, the GS yields a slightly more potent and dynamic all-around sound. Players can expect deeper bass, thicker trebles, and increased volume and low-end sustain, all without disrupting the tonal balance and clarity of the guitar.
Maple has long been associated with a bright acoustic sound, but Taylor maple guitars are voiced to bring out greater warmth, richness and sustain. This broadens maple tonal range from a single-dimension sound to a more musical, more versatile voice.
