With a wonderful blend of classic tonewoods and modern electronics the Taylor 316CE has a gorgeous solid Sitka spruce top complemented by a Sapele back and sides that also provide a warm and mellow quality similar to that of mahogany providing it with an all-around balanced tone. Taylors Grand Symphony body style featured on the 316ce is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the 316CE a slightly larger lower bout giving you an excellent blend of power and projection without losing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style.
Onboard Taylor Expression System electronics give you natural sound even when plugged in live designed to faithfully reproduce your guitars native tone. Unlike standard onboard electronics the Taylor Expression System is seamlessly integrated into the design of the 316ce from the ground up. The onboard tone controls provide added flavour or can be set flat for an uncoloured exceptionally clean amplified sound.
