Instrumentul este absolut nou. A sosit din USA l-am testat putin si gata. Nu prezinta nici un fel de urme de uzura. Zgarieturi, lovituri. Nu avea cand si cum. Deci e un instrument absolut nou pe care il cumparati din Romania, il puteti vedea testa in conditii de studio. Nici macar nu e inregistrat la Taylor pentru garantie. Acest lucru il va face noul proprietar. Ea are o garantie de 9 ani din partea Taylor. Suna extraordinar. Mai multe info gasiti si pe site-ul Taylor. Se livreaza cu toc original asa cum a venit. Are toata documentatia.
Taylor's 416CE is a premium acoustic guitar that doesn't skimp on quality tonewoods or meticulous construction, and yet doesn't feature many of the big-cost extras that are purely their for visual effect. The built in ES2 pickup is one of the best acoustic guitar pickups on the marker, and that is why Taylor guitars are probably the most popular electro-acoustic guitars in the world today!
The New Stuff
The 416ce was already an incredible guitar that delivered a focused sound that can be used across most playing styles. Though as technology grows sometimes guitars need an update. So for 2015 Taylor have made sure that the 416ce is as up to date with all of the latest trimmings including their Expression 2 System pickup and preamp. This new pickup design improves volume output and frequency response so you get a better sound live that can easily be run through a PA with no worries about volume.
What makes this system so special is the behind the saddle pickup design which means it responds more to your playing. You will hear nuances and frequencies that were just not picked up by your old guitars under saddle piezo pickup system.
That is not all they changed though. The 416ce now features an all gloss finish that feels great in the hands and makes it extremely easy to play. This change doesn't just change how it plays but how it looks. The gloss finish will look amazing when you are on stage and to make it look even better you also get a set of small pearl dot inlays which are subtle but beautiful.
Built On A Legend
The 416ce is a large bodied grand symphony acoustic that is made with a strummer in mind. It can handle a lot more than that in practice thanks to things like the new ES2 preamp but in terms of feel this is a big ol' guitar made for strumming. with an ovangkol back and sides with sitka spruce top this guitar works great both in and out of the studio so if you are after a guitar you can use all day every day the 400 series may be the right bet.
Here's what Taylor say about the 416CE
Players continue to discover solid African ovangkol’s responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. White binding applies a crisp counterpoint against the gloss top and mottled brown hues of ovangkol, while the Expression System wires these guitars for high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound.
