When you pick up a Taylor, you can expect outstanding tone. One of the leading reasons behind that signature Taylor voice is the use of high-quality tonewoods. This particular Taylor, the 616e, is a prime example of just that. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top (which gives you projection), while its body is Big Leaf maple, for extra snap and brightness. The Taylor 616e also features a maple neck, which is topped with a smooth-playing ebony fingerboard.Grand Symphony body style gives you exceptional presence
Taylor's beloved Grand Symphony body style, featured on the 616e, employs the width and depth of the dreadnought. But, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand-Symphony-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look, with more treble zing. The 616e's Grand Symphony body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. Ultimately, from fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Symphony is a great body choice for nearly every playing style.Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 616e's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. The Taylor Expression 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.
