The Taylor 416ce-R cutaway is a continuation of that stellar tradition and represents the midpoint between Taylor's lower-end models and its highest-priced guitars. The 416ce-R features a signature Sitka spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides, a combination known for exquisite high and midrange tone as well as its three-dimensional low end. As with Taylor's other acoustics, the 416ce-R has a broad dynamic range — even when picked aggressively, notes and chords ring out clearly. A driving attack really highlights the 416ce-R's fullness and projection. This guitar comes equipped with Taylor ES2 electronics for natural tone and dynamics in a stage-friendly direct out.
