Grand Symphony Tone with Next-generation Electronics

Taylor's 616e embodies a superb blend of classic tonewoods and modern electronics. With it, you get a gorgeous, solid Sitka spruce top with Big Leaf maple back and sides, ensuring excellent tone when unplugged. Taylor also added their renowned Taylor Expression 2 electronics system, which makes the Taylor 616e ripe for stage use as well. The Grand Symphony body style perfectly compliments the selection of tonewoods, adding powerful projection and a natural treble emphasis to the Taylor 616e acoustic-electric guitar.

Choice tonewoods: Sitka spruce meets Big Leaf maple

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. Guitarists at Sweetwater will tell you that from fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Symphony is a great body choice for nearly every playing style.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 616e 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 616e'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.

Taylor 616e Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • An acoustic-electric guitar with a bold yet smooth voice
  • Grand Symphony body style gives you dreadnought-like projection with a more expressive upper register
  • Sitka spruce provides a bright and balanced tone
  • Big Leaf maple back and sides enhance detail and articulation
