Overview

The Taylor 916CE Grand Symphony embodies the core Taylor philosophy that made the 800 series so revered, but adds the most refined levels of Taylor craftsmanship, subtle touches of class and an upgraded bracing system that really allows it to stand apart from its younger siblings. If you're in the market for a sophisticated all-rounder that sounds stunning in any application, with meticulous good looks and premium appointments, the 900 series is for you.

The 2015 refreshed appointment scheme boasts a beautifully calibrated balance of ebony binding and koa purfling, together with colorful abalone shell inlays and trim.

A classic top tonewood of Sitka Spruce has a lighter weight which gives the top the freedom to move, which helps translate the player’s picking or strumming into clear acoustic tone. Spruce is frequently employed by Taylor for a clear, balanced frequency response across the spectrum, which partners well with the Grand Symphony body shape. Medium strummers, flat pickers and more melodic players alike will appreciate the faster attack offered by a hardwood like Spruce.The Indian Rosewood body is meticulously graded for consistently straight and tight grain, often displaying a rich range of color variegation, further enhanced by Taylor's ultra-thin gloss finish which helps bring out every nuance of the wood.

The 916CE also features a hand-carved ebony armrest around the top side of the body, which not only looks elegant and unique, but provides added comfort and playability over longer playing or recording sessions.

As part of Taylor’s 2014 voicing refinements for their premium models, the bracing profile is specifically customised for the Grand Symphony to optimise its inherent strengths. The Advanced Performance bracing scheme on the 916CE also incorporates side braces, which add rigidity and help maximize top and back movement. The overall effect on all the shapes is greater warmth, midrange and sustain.
