Taylor 816ce Acoustic Guitar, Indian Rosewood & Sitka Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Taylor's 800 series models combine the classic tonewoods, Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood, with their unmistakable design and playability. Rich bass balances out the bright, sparkling Taylor treble, and every note rings with crisp clarity.

The Grand Symphony design, just slightly larger than the Grand Auditorium and with standard scale, delivers an extra boost of dynamic range and power in a comfortable shape - perfect for the versatile player who wants to switch from strumming to fingerstyle to lead playing with ease.

This older, pre-owned 2015 model does not feature the arm bevel found on the latest iterations of the 816ce, and there are a two notable cosmetic dings along the lower bout. But it remains in very clean condition otherwise, comes with its original hard case, and is an excellent opportunity to nab a deluxe Taylor at a more affordable price.
