With its generous contours and innovative soundport cutaway, the Grand Symphony body shape represents Taylor’s envelope-pushing design philosophy. This 326ce from the 300 Series delivers on the immersive, high-fidelity promise of the Grand Symphony shape, utilizing all-solid mahogany back, sides and top and V-Class bracing to serve up a rich, room-filling sound that retains mahogany’s warmth and focus. That orchestral response makes the 326ce a great choice for everything from accompanying other instruments to recording to shining solo under the stage lights. If you’re ready for an entirely new acoustic guitar playing experience, the 326ce is for you.

Grand Symphony

This strong Taylor strummer produces a rich, bold voice.

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Tropical Mahogany

The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Soundport Cutaway

Featured exclusively on Taylor Grand Symphony guitars, the soundport cutaway offers all the accessibility and comfort of a traditional cutaway while helping the guitar produce a more immersive, high-fidelity sound. 

V-Class Bracing

Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
