2020 Taylor 816ce Builders Edition - w/OHSC (consignment)

Check out this Very Good condition Taylor 816ce Builders Edition. What an instrument - loud, proud and even across the tonal spectrum. Really could handle just about anything we threw at it. And it is EXTREMELY comfy with the newer shape and rounded edges. Just a joy to play, especially with the sound port on the cutaway, allowing for a (no-BS) "surround sound" experience when playing solo. There are two small dings on the top - one on the top lower bout, and one on the bottom lower bout - otherwise, this one would be darn near mint. Includes the original hardshell case in equally clean condition. 

Please note: this is a consignment item and is sold as-is, no returns. 

Here's what Taylor has to say:

The first guitar to feature our updated Grand Symphony body shape, the Builder's Edition 816ce introduces a fresh sound and style to the Taylor line. Made with solid Indian rosewood back and sides, a Lutz spruce top, and V-Class bracing, this acoustic-electric boasts a soundport cutaway, which leaves the back of the guitar intact for maximum resonance while allowing sound to disperse in an immersive, wide-angle way. The result is a surround-sound experience characterized by warm, sparkling tone that balances clarity and power, one that performs as well in solo settings as it does in larger groups. Finished off with chamfered edges and built-in ES2 electronics, the Builder's Edition 816ce serves up a truly unique musical experience.
