Taking the guitar experience to a whole new level is the new Taylor 816ce.  There have been lots of experimentation over the years with additional soundports and varying degrees of figuring new ways to project the sound of an acoustic instrument, but if you are going to call something a Grand Symphony, well it better sound like it!  This is the guitar you would want to play alongside your concert piano!  Built with Builders Edition Attributes, and an almost 3-dimensional" sound projection, this guitar must be experienced to be understood.  Pairing the most poplar guitar tonewoods (Rosewood and a solid spruce top) with V-Class Architecture gave Andy the springboard to create this masterpiece instrument.  Playability is unmatched, and the sound has to be experienced.
