Description

Details

Taylor has a reputation for building guitars to their exacting standards and the Taylor 416e Electro Acoustic Guitar is no exception. It is a highly desirable 6-string that is coveted by many not only for its incredible tonal qualities but also for its beautiful lines and natural look.

Body

The Taylor 416e is built using the Grand Symphony body shape. Introduced in 2006, the Grand Symphony delivers a rich, powerful acoustic voice, without the dreadnought boom. Offering a richly textured and full-bodied sound, which is responsive to the lightest of touches, the body offers an outstanding dynamic range. Whether you prefer to attack the strings with a fast picking or strumming style, or prefer to play with a deft fingerstyle technique, the 416e can deliver a beautifully lush tone.

Construction

The back and side wood of the 416e is built using Ovangkol, which is a sister wood to rosewood. Ovangkol is known for having a wonderful breadth in the mid to low-end tones.

The top wood is built using Sitka Spruce which as Taylor say, “…is the tonewood standard of the modern era.” It has the enviable combination of strength and elasticity. Sitka Spruce also deliver richly textured highs.

Unlike the guitars in Taylor's 300 range, the combination of Ovangkol and Sitka Spruce creates a somewhat scooped out mid-range of frequencies. This means you get a very deep low-end coupled with very crisp highs for quite a contrasting sound.

This makes the 416e an excellent guitar for singer-songwriters, whose voice can perfectly fill in that mid-range gap.

The neck is constructed from reassuringly unyielding Tropical Mahogany, which is set to a 25-1/2” scale length. Coupled with an Ebony fingerboard - that is home to 14 clear frets and a total of 20 frets - the sonic properties of both woods marry together beautifully to complete the delivery of superbly resonant tones.

Electronics

Taylor have done their utmost to ensure that the unique acoustics and timbre of the guitar are as closely represented as possible when it is plugged-in, as to when it is played acoustically. To guarantee this, Taylor spent several years working in collaboration with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve to design and perfect their groundbreaking Expression System ® (ES).

The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup that sits near the soundboard, which acts like a microphone to a produce an exact representation of the acoustics of the guitar. The ES is incredibly simple to command by using the onboard system comprised of three simple controls – volume, bass, treble. These control knobs have been designed to be discrete enough not to interfere with the aesthetic of the guitar yet be easily located for quick adjustment.

Finish

The fit and finish of the Taylor 416e is in keeping with their incredibly high standards featuring a glossed top to show off the natural veneer of the sitka spruce, and satin back and sides to protect the finish. White binding seals the fretboard, whilst chrome tuners and buttons complete the high-class aesthetic.
