Taylor Guitars GS Takes To The Stage With New Cutaway/Electric Models

United States
28 January 2008 — In a move that re-affirms Taylor Guitars’ ongoing commitment to premium amplified acoustic tone, Taylor has added 11 new Grand Symphony (GS) models to its flagship acoustic/electric line.

The new GS models are stage-ready, with gently rounded Venetian cutaways and Expression System® electronics, and their model numbers follow Taylor’s traditional naming convention: on a 516ce, for instance, the “5” signifies a tonewood and binding combination (Tropical mahogany and Indian rosewood); the “1” indicates the guitar is a 6-string (a “5” in this position would mean it is a 12-string); the final digit, “6,” designates a GS body shape, and “ce” stands for “cutaway/electric.”

The Taylor 816ce

In addition to the big-and-warm-sounding 516ce, GS acoustic/electric models include the 616ce and 12-string 656ce (figured Big Leaf maple back and sides/Sitka spruce top), with crisp, bright tones that cut through a mix onstage. There are four new Indian rosewood models — the “perfect-for-fingerstyle” 716ce (Western Red cedar top, abalone soundhole rosette); the beautiful and rich-sounding 816ce and 12-string 856ce (Sitka spruce top, figured maple binding on the neck and body); the elegant 916ce, featuring Taylor’s highest-grade premium quality rosewood and other materials (hand-picked Sitka spruce top, 900 Series abalone soundhole rosette, fretboard inlay and binding, bone nut and saddle, gold Gotoh tuners).

Hawaiian koa lovers will flip for the K16ce (Hawaiian koa back and sides/Sitka spruce top) and K26ce (substitutes a figured Hawaiian koa top for spruce). Two stunning Koa Series 12-string GS cutaway models are also available, the koa/spruce K56ce, and the koa-topped K66ce.
