Taylor 716ce Western Sunburst


Another glorious hand-selected one from the craftsman over at Taylor has arrived! This Grand Symphony is as gorgeous sounding as she is to look at. We were allowed a glimpse at a gaggle of unique pieces and this one immediately grabbed us and forced us to bring her home with the blooming sound that came forth on the first strum. There is an immediacy to the bass and presence of this larger bodied instrument that fills the room without overpowering. The scoop in the middle is just right and the Taylor treble rings out true! Tonally this instrument really is a winner. We love our Taylors but sometimes there is just something special we cant put our finger on with a particular instrument and this one happens to have it. 

Now visually, she does not disappoint at all either as we said. The Florentine cutaway is a wonderful addition to the Grand Symphony shape that we love here at Casino Guitars. I have even caught a few of our team just running their hands down the graceful slopes of the cutaway as if it were a mystical ski slope to their dreams. The hand applied burst is outstanding! The colors arrive at a gentle sunlit white toward the center that brings a bit of peace when starred at. The spruce top and gorgeous Indian Rosewood back and sides really bounce with the finish and appointments. 

  • Grand Symphony body style sings out boldly with superior articulation to cut through the mix
  • Rosewood back and sides yield warm, rich mids with just the right amount of sparkly treble
  • Lutz spruce top projects with powerful volume
  • Florentine cutaway is visually striking and lets you access upper frets easily
  • ES2 electronics deliver your 716ce's tone safely to the PA or recording console
  • High-end appointments set this guitar apart as a real winner
