An astonishing tonewood combination - Sitka spruce and Macassar ebony

Few acoustic guitars can boast so rich a tonewood combination as the Taylor PS16ce. Usually reserved for Taylor's Presentation series, the PS16ce features a magnificently Macassar ebony back and sides that's absolutely captivating to look at. But good looks aren't all this exquisite tonewood has to offer you. Its deeply resonant bass, bright highs, and incredible projection go hand in hand with the tonal balance it gets from its elegant Sitka spruce top. Look at it, and you can guess that the Taylor PS16ce is a special instrument. Pick one up from Sweetwater, and you'll know for sure.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's Grand Symphony body style, featured on the PS16ce acoustic-electric guitar, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the PS16ce 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.

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 PS16ce 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 PS16ce'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 PS16ce Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • A top-of-the-line Taylor guitar that looks amazing, sounds fantastic, and plays like a dream
  • Fully adorned with Taylor's Presentation Series appointments and inlays
  • Beautiful Macassar ebony looks amazing and provides clear, loud, and full-bodied tone
  • Premium spruce top balances your mids and lets your high breathe naturally
  • Grand Symphony body style gives you an even tone with extra punch and exceptional projection
  • Onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics give you natural sound even when plugged in live
  • Hardshell case included
