A Premium Taylor with an Imaginative Design
The Taylor 816ce Builder’s Edition acoustic-electric guitar pairs a distinctive body design with an immaculate sound for the ultimate playing experience. Built around Taylor’s innovative V-Class bracing, this Grand Symphony-sized guitar produces a rich and airy orchestral tone with incredible detail, resonance, and projection, supported by an Indian rosewood back and sides and a crisp Lutz spruce top. The 816ce Builder’s Edition’s eye-catching look derives from its chamfered body and fretboard edges, satin finish, and scooped, treble-side soundport cutaway, which gives access to the upper frets without diminishing tone. Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics provide a clear and accurate amplified sound along with feedback control for an ideal gigging instrument. Guitarists at Sweetwater were more than impressed when they picked up the 816ce Builder’s Edition — a premium acoustic made to be treasured.
