What we say:

At A Glance:

The Taylor Builder's Edition 816ce is a newly redesigned take on their Grand Symphony body shape. All of the high quality woods and components you expect from Taylor are here, a solid Lutz spruce top, paired with gorgeous Indian rosewood back and sides, revolutionary V-Class bracing, and Taylor's electronic-standard the Expression System 2.

What makes this stand out from the crowd, is the new soundport cutaway. On first glance it resembles a distinct Florentine style cutaway, but looking closer the full back of the guitar is still intact, with an additional soundhole capable of projecting a wide-angle of sound for a more immersive experience.

Features We Love:

Builder's Edition

Taylor's Builder's Edition represent the highest quality they can offer, with superior comfort, playability and tone.

Each guitar is made with premium woods and player-focused features to deliver a guitar that will not only sound incredible, but inspire you to lift your playing to the next level.

Soundport Cutaway

The soundport cutaway is an innovative design that stays true to the aesthetics of the guitar, while providing a unique way of projecting sound. The off-axis nature of the soundport creates a surround sound style experience, and opens the door to new dimensions of acoustic playing.

Boutique Appointments

What kind of Taylor would this be without having some gorgeous details to inspect? The Florentine style cutaway, the elegant curve wing bridge with it's soft contours, rolled body and fretboard edges for next-level comfort, and a silent satin finish that not only looks and feels good, but minimises the audible movements you make while playing.


  • Builder's Edition guitars are some of the highest quality Taylors you can buy. 
  • Premier components and player-focused features ensure you play and sound at your best, with unmatched comfort
  • Innovative Soundport Cutaway provides a unique experience expanding the dimensions of Acoustic guitars
