Taylor 316e Limited Edition 8 String Baritone w/ Case - Blackwood
This fantastic limited edition blackwood and lutz spruce baritone 8-string ushers in a new era of Taylor's famous 8-string Baritone design! The Grand Symphony is tuned from B to B, blending a husky tonal register with two additional octave strings (paired with the third and fourth strings) that add a splash of 12-string shimmer. The guitar’s lower register makes it easier to sing your favorite songs and hit notes that might otherwise be hard to reach — all without the need to transpose or retune. And if you want to play in standard tuning, simply use a 12-string capo on the fifth fret. The baritone also makes a wonderful textural complement together with another guitar, allowing you to play bass parts or chord voicing variations with a pleasing mix of depth and shimmer. With Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 pickup, all that rich tonal character will come through without any low-end muddiness. If you’re looking to expand your musical parameters or reinvigorate your playing or songwriting, this guitar will make an inspiring addition to your acoustic arsenal.
