Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Big Leaf maple

The 656e, is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle, and the 656e's Big Leaf maple back and sides give it an extra bright and snappy tone.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's Grand Symphony body style, featured on the 656e, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the 656e a slightly larger lower bout, giving you an excellent blend of power and projection, without losing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style.

Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 656e's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture both top and string vibration with incredible detail. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve. Unlike standard onboard electronics, the Taylor Expression System is seamlessly integrated into the design of the 656e from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
