Taylor 500 Series 516ce Acoustic Electric Guitar

The Taylor 516ce Grand Symphony comes included with a mahogany body wood that adds a warm midrange along with a spruce top wood that combines to add more boldness in the low end as well. With the use of the Lutz. its tone resembles an Adirondack spruce in its overall tonal output. With the addition of Taylor's Performance Bracing to the 516ce, the combination equals a bright powerful volume along with a clean richness. Body aesthetics on the Taylor 516ce include faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay. Lastly, the 516ce sets it off with the Venetian cutaway body and the popular Expression System 2 Electronics.

In Taylors process in getting rid of the generic under-saddle piezo transducers, Taylor added their state of the art Expression System 2 pickups in their acoustic electrics. Not only are the 3 pickups individually calibrated but they are positioned precisely sensors that react organically to the guitars energy as it moves through the saddle. Taylor also has a custom preamp that not only boosts up to 25% of hotter signal but also gives you a more natural sounding acoustic with more range and responsiveness to your play.
