Taylor Builder's Edition 717e Grand Pacific w/ Western Floral Case - Rosewood
Taylor's new Grand Pacific body shape has made waves throughout the world of acoustic guitar, with unparalleled volume and a new Taylor sound. The 717e Builder's Edition utilizes a torrefied spruce top, with rosewood back and sides to produce harmonic rich sustain, that is limitless in its depth and complexity. This Builder's Edition guitar has a voice that is warm, seasoned, and vintage-perfect for creating a wall of sound underneath a singer-songwriter, or a crisp foundation for larger ensembles.The luxurious sonic properties of these tone woods are furthered by the sonic powerhouse that is V-Class bracing.
A Builder’s Edition model, the 717e boasts an array of unique features including: chamfered body edges, rolled fingerboard edges, and a new compound-carve neck profile, specifically engineered to fit the player's hand while moving up and down the satin finished neck.
As if this fantastic guitar's sound, look, and feel weren't enough, it also comes with an exciting hardcase. All Grand Pacific Taylors come with their new Western Floral case, this case is as much a piece of art as the guitar. Made from beautiful tooled leather, the Western Floral case cements this powerful body shape as a vintage inspiered, modern classic.
This guitar includes Taylor's ES2 pickup / preamp and a Taylor Deluxe Western Floral Hardshell Case.
