Builder's Edition 717e

Taylor's Builder's Edition Grand Pacific 717e may appear ultra-traditional, but is loaded with modern, player-focused features that elevate the Grand Pacific body shape beyond its roots as a dreadnought. Built around Andy Power's revolutionary V-Class bracing, this model retains cherished elements of the dreadnought guitars of the past while eliminating the impractical "woof" that tends to accompany the low end of older acoustic guitars. Warm and seasoned with plenty of power under the hood, this model can drive plenty of volume at the player's command, also responding to a soft touch thanks to V-Class bracing's tone-enhancing properties. Rounded fretbord and body edges take the pressure of the player's arms whether sitting or standing, while the softened Spanish-style neck heel and compound neck profile make holding notes and chords a breeze for players of all skill levels. The Silent Satin finish helps remove incidental noise from friction on the body, allowing the rosewood body and torrefied sruce top to resonate with their full overtonal complexity. Availble in either natural or Wild Honey Burst finishes, the Builder's Edition 717e includes an ES2 preamp and deluxe hardshell case.
