The One You've Been Waiting for

Take Bob Taylor's masterful Grand Symphony body shape, add in the tonewood cocktail of tropical mahogany back and sides, and a Lutz spruce top (a hybrid with a tonal resemblance to Adirondack), and you've got one gorgeous guitar: the Taylor 516ce. This acoustic-electric's midrange projection is bookended by a beefy low end and clear treble, while the top - bolstered by Taylor's Performance bracing - fortifies the instrument's sonic gusto. Sweetwater guitarists are in love with this highly playable beauty. Its impeccable 500 Series appointments look stunning under stage lights, and the amplified signal from the Expression System 2 electronics is flawless. The Taylor 516ce. This is the one you've been waiting for.

Taylor 516ce Features:
  • Grand Symphony 6-string acoustic-electric guitar
  • Mahogany back and sides deliver robust midrange focus
  • Sitka spruce top adds sparkle and zing
  • Elegant Venetian cutaway provides upper-register access
  • Faux tortoise shell rosette, pickguard, and binding
  • Ivoroid Century fretboard inlay
  • Taylor ES2 Electronics
The Taylor 516ce: You're going to love this guitar!
