With a slightly bigger Grand Symphony body shape than it's younger sibling (the 714ce), Taylor's 716CE is a more rich, full bodied instrument that strummers and rhythm guitar players will instantly love. A slightly wider waist and a bigger lower bout adds plenty of depth and warm undertones, naturally complemented by the Indian Rosewood back and side wood.
Yet for such a robust voice, this Grand Symphony also offers clear and responsive top end. perfect for fast picking runs or a light fingerstyle touch, so if you’re a dynamic player, this shape is a truly versatile model to consider. A sexy venetian cutaway adds to the visual beauty and renowned Taylor aesthetics whilst offering practical upper fret access for solo runs.
The aptly named Vintage Sunburst finish saturates the top in a warm, gradual fade that blends well with the rosewood sides and faux tortoise shell pickguard. Creamy ivoroid outlines the body, fretboard, headstock and soundhole, and also is used for the neo-traditional Heritage Diamonds fretboard inlay. Think of a guitar that’s an old soul at heart, but with all the modern Taylor touches - effortless playability, clear, balanced tone - that make Taylor acoustics so rewarding to play.
The 700 series really underlies what Taylor are all about - gorgeous aesthetics and body design, combined with practical playability and subtle touches that show off their detailed craftsmanship.
