    Taylor 916ce Grand Symphony Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Case Product Description

    Forming part of the upper echelon of Taylor's rosewood models the Taylor 916ce features Taylor's popular "Cindy" inlay, Indian rosewood binding, red purfling accents, and abalone top trim that also borders the fretboard extension. Among Taylor's three classes of rosewood guitars, the fine detailing of the 900 Series sets it apart with exceptional design sophistication.

    Grand Symphony

    The Grand Symphony shape joined the line in 2006 and delivers Taylor's boldest, richest acoustic voice. Think of it as a Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, thanks to expanded physical dimensions, including a slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout. Strummers and pickers with a driving attack will love the fullness, volume and sustain. Yet for such a robust voice, the GS is also clear and responsive to fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you're a dynamic player, this shape is a true contender. And the big voice doesn't come at the expense of balance. The piano-like bass, meaty midrange, and thick, shimmering highs blend seamlessly. These traits also make the GS a great vehicle for 12-Strings. If you like a lush, potent guitar tone that has the horsepower to compete with other acoustic cannons out there, the GS shape is a worthy choice.

    Expression System

    Natural Sound Made Simple
    People love the clear, full acoustic tone of their Taylors. Why should it be any different when they plug in? That's why they spent several years developing their own onboard acoustic pickup and preamp. Taylor's ground-breaking Expression System(r) (ES) was designed to naturally amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar.

    Pickups
    The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound. When you plug in, you'll hear the sound of your guitar, not the sound of the pickup. No complicated controls. No tone simulators. Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls -- volume, bass and treble.

    Breakthrough Technology
    Years of research brought the, to a simple realization: Nothing sounds as true and musical as a microphone. With that as a starting point, Taylor's David Hosler led the team responsible for the Expression System's breakthrough technology. Utilizing a unique Dynamic Body Sensor(r) mounted to the soundboard, a Dynamic String Sensor embedded beneath the fretboard, and a discrete preamp, the advanced ES technology is unlike any other guitar pickup system.

    Integrated Design
    The ES was designed in-house, alongside their acoustic guitars, which allowed them to build the ES seamlessly into the design of the guitar, for an integrated pickup system unlike any other. From the design and location of the body and string sensors to the voicing of the preamp, the ES is fully optimized for the Taylor sound. The elegant design, including the non-intrusive control knobs, also preserves the aesthetic of a Taylor guitar.
