Inspired by yesterday. Made for today.

Note: Due to differences in wood grain, the item you receive may not exactly match the item in the photos.

One of Taylor's newest offerings, the Grand Pacific Builder's Edition 717e introduces a new sound and feel to the brand.

Constructed with a torrefied Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, this round-shoulder dreadnought speaks with rich low-end, crystal clear highs and mids registers, and an overall tone that is warm, seasoned, and nicely blended. The revolutionary V-Class bracing pattern, a Taylor innovation inspired by early bluegrass and old-time records, improves projection and sustain, allowing the top to vibrate more freely for a natural, open sound. This Builder's Edition model also includes a suite of premium features designed to improve playing feel, like chamfered body edges, a new compound-carved neck profile, contoured fingerboard edges, a ridgeless heel, and a refined bridge, as well as a noise-reducing Satin finish for enhanced tonal purity.

The Taylor 717e Builder's Edition Torrefied Sitka/Rosewood Grand Pacific Natural comes equipped with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
