If you're looking for a guitar with an immersive, orchestral sound, the Builders Edition 816e is a must-play. Back and sides of solid Indian rosewood offer up warm, pristine tone across the frequency spectrum, with rumbling lows and crisp highs balanced by a slightly scooped midrange, with a Lutz spuce top for a springy, punchy attack. But the real game-changer is the soundport cutaway tucked neatly under the fretboard extension, providing access to the higher frets while leaving the guitar's back intact to preserve its lung capacity. That second soundhole adds a surround-sound quality to the 816ce's response, pumping out waves of projection and sustain supported by V-Class bracing. This model includes Taylor's proprietary Expression System 2 electronics and ships with a deluxe hardshell case that prevents physical damage and helps maintain humidity around your guitar.
