The bold and balanced voice of the rosewood/spruce cutaway Grand Symphony 716ce delivers a blend of powerful bass, meaty midrange, and equally thick trebles. A Lutz spruce top paired with updated Performance bracing bolster the all-around sound, yielding a strong fundamental focus to balance rosewood’s natural bell-like overtone sparkle. Players with a dynamic picking or strumming attack will love the responsiveness to both a light and heavy touch. Wood-rich details include Hawaiian Koa binding, a herringbone-inspired rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, with a “weathered brown” pickguard that complements the earthy Americana appeal of the aesthetic. Taylor’s proprietary ES2 pickup and preamp serve up natural-sounding amplified acoustic tone.
