Tonal Perfection, Great Looks, and Uber-playability

The Taylor 416ce 2014 Spring Limited 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). This special edition 416ce has ovangkol back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, for rich tone with healthy projection. The slim, fast neck wears a scrumptious ebony fingerboard, with access assisted by a graceful Venetian cutaway. Factor in gorgeous visuals and superb Expression System 2 electronics, and the Taylor 416ce 2014 Spring Limited is your ticket to great things.

Taylor 416ce 2014 Spring Limited Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
  • Superb Taylor gloss finish
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 GS serves up sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. It's a favorite of the guitarists here at Sweetwater. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor 416ce 2014 Spring Limited gives your notes articulation - even with a light attack. Take it from us, the Grand Symphony is a body style that means it.

Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed piezo transducers under their bridge saddles, but Taylor has discovered a better way. Their revolutionary Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup features three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors that respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed, studio-grade preamp, the result is a more natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics. If you've grown weary of synthetic, compressed-sounding A/E tone, you will be, too!

Superb Taylor gloss finish

The gloss finish used on the Taylor 416ce 2014 Spring Limited was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. The unique formula allows a thinner coverage to be applied, which lets the wood resonate more freely, ultimately giving you fuller tone. It's clearer than lacquer and won't yellow over time the way lacquer does. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
