This Grand Symphony 12-string has tone that rings out with balance and complexity.

The Taylor 856ce Grand Symphony Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is fashioned from Indian rosewood that seems as if it was created to be on this exquisite guitar. The clarity, balance, sustain, excellent bass response, and wonderful coloration and figure are without equal. Paired with Sitka spruce, it is an unstoppable sonic combination. The Taylor 856ce Grand Symphony is adorned with mother-of-pearl 800 Series fingerboard inlays, maple binding, and an abalone rosette, and equipped with the Taylor Expression System and cutaway, this beauty has the tools to shine in any music venue.

Though you might see similarities to a Grand Auditorium, the Taylor Grand Symphony guitar is unique in both sound and shape. Significant changes in its geometry yield a deeper more piano-like bass. A wider lower bout and higher, wider waist return ample volume and low-end sustain in symphony with fuller mids and balanced highs.

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

The finish used to create the Taylor 856ce guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
