What we say:

At a Glance

The Taylor Builder's Edition 717e is part of the brand's new collection of Grand Pacific acoustics. It features luxury materials, great electronics and V-class bracing. It is an easy to play, versatile instrument.

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.

V-Class Bracing

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.

Pros:

  • Incredibly versatile body shape
  • Great pickup system
  • Beautiful woods and finish
