Taylor 416 ce Grand Symphony Ovangkol Back and Sides and a Solid Spruce Top.
Players continue to discover solid African ovangkol’s responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. White binding applies a crisp counterpoint against the gloss top and mottled brown hues of ovangkol, while the Expression System wires these guitars for high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound. In a Grand Symphony configuration, it makes for a very powerful voice both acoustically and plugged in. Lows and bold and forward, mids are slightly scooped, and treble and clear and articulate. The Taylor 416ce is a contemporary guitar for those looking to define their own sound.
