You are looking at a Taylor 916ce Grand Symphony Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1104285116. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Taylor Guitars has completely revamped their premium rosewood/spruce 900 Series line with a luxurious fresh aesthetic and all of the sonic enhancements that took the 800 Series into new tonal territory.

The Taylor 916ce Grand Symphony has always been known for its incredible power and amazing sonic depth & richness. Today, the 916ce incorporates several tone-enhancing refinements to take its legendary power and tone up a notch. It provides you with more volume, more power, especially in the low end, plus a full-bodied sound with more tonal richness than ever before. The 916ce still offers superb balance from E to e while maintaining its articulation and clarity up in the treble range.

The updated visual adornments of the 916ce are both sumptuous and classy, yet they are not overly done. The first appointment you'll notice is the addition of an ebony armrest, which until now, has only been reserved for the more ornamented Presentation Series. Carved by hand, the ebony armrest offers the perfect blend of both elegance and comfort. The 916ce showcases ebony binding along with beautiful koa purfling that outlines the gorgeous paua abalone top trim, fingerboard extension, and rosette. The fingerboard and headstock both carry breathtaking abalone/mother-of-pearl Ascension inlays and feature ebony binding with koa edging. The gloss-finished ebony backstrap exudes elegance, style and class.

Whether you're recording in the studio or performing on stage, the 916ce comes fitted with Taylor Expression System 2 for superior performance and unsurpassed amplified tone.

The Taylor 916ce Grand Symphony Acoustic-Electric Guitar comes with the full protection of a deluxe hardshell case.
