A Stunning 1st Edition 800 Series Taylor

At Sweetwater, we're excited about the Taylor 816ce 2014 1st Edition. This gorgeous acoustic-electric guitar combines premium tonewoods with masterful design and craftsmanship for a stunning instrument that's a joy to play. The 816ce features a solid Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, a tropical American mahogany neck, and an ebony fretboard for amazingly rich tone and great looks. The cutaway Grand Symphony body style makes this instrument very comfortable to play, while Taylor's combination of woods, construction, and Expression System 2 electronics make this 816ce bloom with tone, onstage or off.

Taylor 816ce Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection
  • Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior amplified sound
A classic tonewoods combination - Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood

Nothing beats the sound of real rosewood topped with spruce - and that's exactly what you get with the Taylor 816ce. It features a beautiful Sitka spruce top, which gives you wonderful projection and the perfect amount of sparkle. Add to that the balanced tone and astonishing projection of the 816ce's Indian rosewood back and sides, and you have a guitar with timeless tone.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's Grand Symphony body style, featured on the 816ce 2014 1st Edition, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the guitar a slightly larger lower bout, and gives you an excellent blend of power and projection, without losing the high-end definition that's a hallmark of the Grand Auditorium body style.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior amplified sound

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 816ce. 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 816ce'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 816ce 2014 1st Edition Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • A beautiful acoustic-electric guitar with a timeless voice
