Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Sapele

The 316ce, is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle. The 316ce's Sapele back and sides also give it warm and mellow quality, similar to that of mahogany, providing it with an all-around balanced tone.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's 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 give the 316ce a slightly larger lower bout, giving you an excellent blend of power and projection, without loosing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style.

Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 316ce's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture both top and string vibration with incredible detail. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve. Unlike standard onboard electronics, the Taylor Expression System is seamlessly integrated into the design of the 316ce from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
