Features We Love:
Grand Pacific Body Shape
The new Grand Pacific body shape is a bold move from Taylor. It has been designed by Taylor’s Master luthier Andy Powers as an attempt to improve the Dreadnought. Andy wanted to create a great guitar that did away with certain issues associated with the dreadnought design.
Beautiful, Quality Woods
The 717e is made with a sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. The top has been torrefied to bring out a mature and confident tone from the very wood itself. This process also causes the wood takes on a gorgeous, honeyed look.
Developed by Taylor’s Master Builder Andy Powers, this is an innovative new style of bracing. It tackles the issue of achieving sustain and tone without sacrificing volume. V-Class bracing allows the guitar’s top to move and vibrate in a more stable manner, resulting in more focus and response from the wood. This control means more volume and projection. The ‘V’ of the bracing travels the middle of the guitar, maintaining rigidity and lending sustain and resonance to your notes. V-Class bracing means a louder, richer sound with better intonation and response.
Expression System 2
This is widely recognised as one of the greatest acoustic pickup systems available. It translates every ounce of tone, detail and dynamic from your fingertips, strings and guitar wood. This gives the audience an accurate and fully realistic translation of your performance.
- Incredibly versatile body shape
- Great pickup system
- Beautiful woods and finish

Builder’s Edition Grand Pacific Design Features
Taylor’s Builder’s Edition collection showcases our envelope-pushing pursuits to create the most player-friendly guitars in both sound and feel. Distinctive features of both Builder’s Edition Grand Pacific models include:
Compound carve neck profile: Designed to complement the way a player’s hand position shifts as it moves up the neck, the profile subtly transitions from a slight V at the nut to a rounded C, with a rounded, ridgeless heel.
Rolled fretboard edges: This is a subtle comfort feature that players will feel on both sides of the neck.
Chamfered body edges: The rounded body edges enhance the playing comfort and feature traditional binding.
New Curve Wing bridge shape: Rounded edges and other refined contouring update a signature Taylor aesthetic to make the bridge feel more comfortable against the pick hand.
