Taylor 316ce





The cutaway acoustic/electric 316ce features Taylor’s Grand-Symphony body shape, which yields a powerful voice characterized by a deep bass, thick treble notes, and impressive volume and sustain. Sapele’s natural treble brightness is balanced by the bigger body’s tonal output, making the guitar a robust strummer and lively flatpicker with broad dynamic range. Appointments include black binding, a black pickguard, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a 3-ring rosette. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
