Beautiful Taylor Grand Symphony!

The Taylor 516e 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 516e sports mahogany 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 516e.

Taylor 516e Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Grand Symphony body style: huge, balanced tone with articulation
  • Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics
  • 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 Taylor 516e acoustic-electric guitar serves up sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor 516e 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 516e'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, you can set them flat and get uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sounds from the 516e.

Superb Taylor gloss finish

The lustrous gloss finish on the 516e was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes, and will keep your Taylor 516e looking new for many years.
