Tonal Perfection, Great Looks, and Uber-playability
The Taylor 416e 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 416e sports ovangkol back and sides, and a fast mahogany neck with a scrumptious ebony fingerboard. Topping off the package is Taylor's renowned ES2 electronics. If tonal perfection, great looks, and uber-playability are your thing, check out the Taylor 416e.

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 416e acoustic-electric guitar serves up sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor 416e gives your notes articulation - even with a light attack. The Grand Symphony is a body style that means it.Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 416e acoustic guitar. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 416e's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression. We were more than impressed when Taylor came to Sweetwater to show us what this system can do, and we think you will be too.It's a Taylor!
