With its exceptional mix of Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood back & sides, and tropical mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, the Taylor 716E electro acoustic guitar is a seriously versatile workhorse, throw in Taylor’s Expression System electronics and you have a performers dream instrument.
Akin to a Grand Auditorium body but with a slightly wider waist and a larger lower bout the Grand Symphony shape used to construct the Taylor 716E Electro Acoustic Guitar gives that much extra, helping it to really stand out from other acoustics. Its additional fullness, volume and sustain will tantalise strummers, while the clear voice and responsiveness it offers is great for fingerpickers.
Supporting the versatility and volume of the Taylor 716E Guitar’s body shape, an Sitka spruce has been utilised for its response to aggressive playing, along with its aged tone and rich midrange. The versatility of both body shape and top wood are supported further by the Indian rosewood chosen for the guitar’s back & sides, with its responsiveness to any type of playing and its powerful dexterity throughout the entire sonic range.
The choice of beautiful woods continues with the tropical mahogany used for the Taylor 716E’s neck, topped by a 20-fret ebony fingerboard, which is adorned with Heritage Diamond inlays.
The Taylor 716E Electro Acoustic Guitar has been gloss finished in vintage sunburst, while the neck has received a satin finish, for playing comfort. Offsetting the body finish is an ivoroid binding, which continues along the fingerboard.
Amplifying the natural sound of the Taylor 716E Electro Acoustic is Taylor’s own onboard acoustic pickup and preamp pairing, the Expression System.
Comprised of a Dynamic Body Sensor mounted to the soundboard, a Dynamic String Sensor embedded beneath the fretboard, and a discrete preamp, this setup uses an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system to ensure the natural tones of the Taylor 716E are retained when amplified. What’s more with the Expression System being built by Taylor it works seamlessly with their guitars. Controlling the electronics is easy with a set of non-intrusive knobs, made up of volume, bass, and treble controls.
