Tonal Perfection, Great Looks, and Top-notch Playability

The Taylor 316e acoustic-electric guitar gives you a big low end, healthy volume whether picked or strummed, and articulation with a light attack. These are characteristics of the Grand Symphony body style (a Bob Taylor innovation), which gives you the sonic advantages of a dreadnought, without the boom. The 316e sports sapele back and sides, and a fast mahogany neck with a scrumptious ebony fingerboard. Topping off the package is Taylor's renowned Expression electronics. If tonal perfection, great looks, and uber-playability are your thing, check out the Taylor 316e.

Grand Symphony body style: huge, balanced tone with articulation

Bob Taylor developed the Grand Symphony body style to push the sonic envelope (yet again). Deeper, fuller, and louder than a Grand Auditorium - or a Dreadnought, for that matter - the Taylor 316e acoustic-electric guitar serves up sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor 316e gives your notes articulation - even with a light attack. The Grand Symphony is a body style that means it.

Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics

Designed to faithfully reproduce the Taylor 316e's native tone, the Taylor Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve - and the system is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

It's a Taylor!

There's nothing like a Taylor. Once you get your hands on the 316e acoustic-electric guitar, you'll never want to play anything else! But, what is it that makes a Taylor acoustic so good? For starters, each Taylor is made out of premium tonewoods, for great sound that only gets better with age. You'll also love the easy playing neck. Even if you're primarily an electric player, you'll feel totally comfortable getting around on this neck. Another Taylor hallmark is their commitment to consistent quality and attention to detail - no flawed "built on a Friday afternoon" guitars here! From the innovative neck joint to the durable, top-notch finish, your Taylor is built to play and sound absolutely great, right from the moment you pick it up. Don't settle for less; treat yourself to a Taylor!
