Taylor 326ce Grand Symphony Electro Acoustic

The Taylor 326ce Grand Symphony Electro Acoustic Guitar has a Grand Symphony body shape which is the second largest body shape by Taylor - like the Grand Auditorium with a turbo boost, delivering a deeper bass, thicker trebles, increased volume, improved sustain. It has a wider waist and bigger lower bout than the Auditorium.

The 326ce has a tropical mahogany top which delivers a sweet sound and responds well even with a light touch, and has a natural compression.

The back and sides are made from Urban Ash that is sourced from city trees from California that are in need of removal, making this a sustainable option. It delivers a powerful midrange and has the same kind of balance as mahogany.

The Taylor 326ce uses Taylor’s innovative V bracing, which channels the energy through the guitar in a way that holds the centre of the top more rigidly than the sides, which respond with a rocking motion (not actually visible to the eye, of course). The result is an improvement in volume up the neck, better intonation, and a noticeable change in the way notes blend further up the higher end of the fretboard.

There is also a soundport cutaway, which is placed at a 45 degree angle from the main soundhole, opens out the guitar’s sound in another location to improve both the playing and listening experience by adding extra dimension and giving a ‘surround sound’ effect.

The neck is made from tropical mahogany and is topped with a 20-fret West African Crelicam ebony fretboard which comes from Taylor’s own ebony sawmill in Cameroon where they grow their own sustainable source of high-quality to use on their guitars.

The 326ce features ES2 electronics. The pickup is different from the standard under saddle piezo system, which is under constant tension from the strings. This tension has a negative effect on tone, according to Taylor, and so they place their pickup on the side of the saddle, tensioned by 3 hex bolts which can be adjusted to calibrate the pickup response.

The Taylor 326ce is completed with an Urban Sienna colour treatment in a 5-mil satin finish, Italian acrylic gemstone inlays, and comes with a Taylor Deluxe Brown Hardshell case.
