The sonic power and depth of Taylor’s Grand Symphony body shape, especially in the lower mids, add girth and sustain to the overall voice. The cutaway ovangkol/spruce 416ce makes a bold strummer, yielding meaty midrange and strong treble notes, and its responsiveness to a light touch gives players a dynamic range to explore. Clean, modern appointments include crisp white binding, progressive dot fretboard inlays, and a three-ring rosette, with Taylor’s onboard Expression System acoustic electronics providing a reliable amplified sound for performing or recording.

This particular 416CE is used but in excellent, all original condition. Then tuning machines work well with no slipping, and the truss rod functions perfectly with plenty of adjustment left in both directions. The action is low and it appears that the original saddle has never been sanded down. The electronics also work wonderfully with no scratchiness or spotty signal.
Aesthetically, this guitar looks almost untouched. There are no dings or scratches on the headstock and the tuning machines show no signs of rust or corrosion. The frets show very minor signs of use, with no major divots in any of the frets. The fretboard itself is also near perfect with only minimal signs of use. The face of the body shows very light pick scratching mostly on the pickguard, and there is almost no buckle rash to be seen. There is only one noticeable small ding on the left side of the lower bout (See pictures) which could easily be buffed out to be nearly invisible. The original case is also present and has no major rips , tears, stains or funny smells. Overall this guitar is in superb condition and would be an excellent choice for an intermediate or professional player!
