Ovangkol Me Maybe

Wildwoodians, we are pleased to present the Taylor 416ce, a stellar example of Grand Symphony greatness. Designed to be the perfect bold strummer, the 416ce took a leap forward when Andy Powers introduced his newest design wrinkle: the sound port cutaway. This extra soundhole allows the 416ce to fill a room with its lush, magnificent voice, giving the player a downright orchestral experience.

This full-bodied sound comes as a direct result of the alchemy between spruce and ovangkol. Sitka spruce has been a go-to for decades for a reason: it's bright, balanced, and it has good blend of overtones and fundamental frequencies. Ovangkol, on the other hand, is a relatively new tonewood lauded for its sustainability. It sounds similar to rosewood but with more oomph in the midrange and a sweeter top-end. In the context of a Grand Symphony body (which is smaller than a dreadnought and bigger than a grand auditorium), they produce a robust yet well-sculpted sound that resonates throughout the room without any flubby, muddy frequencies that inhibit clarity.

We're proud to showcase the 416ce, and we invite you to take one for a spin so you can experience the glories of the Grand Symphony body shape and the sweet sound of ovangkol!
