The Taylor 416ce acoustic-electric guitar is a Grand Symphony. It’s sizable – but doesn’t look it, thanks to its narrow waist and svelte curves. In a big ovangkol guitar, this curvaceousness gives you the robust volume and bottom you’d expect from a Dreadnought – but without the boom. Plus, you maintain articulation whether flatpicking or strumming. Playability? This 416ce’s fast neck and ebony fingerboard let you know you’re playing a Taylor right from the getgo. If fabulous tone, amazing looks, and ultra-playability are important to you, you’ve found your axe: Taylor’s 416ce.
