816CE


Our Perspective:
This beautiful Taylor 816CE just came in from the original owner. It was purchased right here at GMC. This guitar was lightly played and now is ready for the owner - this guitar comes with its original case and is in great condition as well!

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!!


Overview: (from the internet)
The essence of the Taylor playing experience lives within the rosewood/spruce 800 Series.

The 816ce Grand Symphony comes with Taylor Expression System 2 electronics and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Grand Symphony
Compared to the Taylor Grand Auditorium, the Grand Symphony has a bigger, rounder lower bout and slightely wider "waist" area, and the bigger sound board (top) means more tonal output. Expect a meaty lower midrange and strong treble shimmer. A GS is best if you want a guitar with a robust low end, strong volume when strumming or flatpicking, and clear articulation in response to light fingerpicking attack.

Tonewoods
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides complement the Sitka top with sound that's made it one of the most popular tone woods ever. Rosewood produces the strongest bass response among the tone woods commonly used for guitars, with a slightly scooped midrange. Rosewood's sweeping frequency range - deep lows that assert a throaty growl with sparkling highs - rings out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity. It yields a full-range acoustic voice with complex overtones and extended sustain.
