The Taylor 717e Builder's Edition pairs a brand new body shape with Taylor's innovative V-Class Bracing system, for a guitar that will surprise and inspire players.
Revealed at NAMM 2019, the Grand Pacific body shape is a round-shouldered dreadnought that resonates with a finely-honed balance of low-end power and clarity across the middle and upper registers, producing warm, rounded tone in which notes blend seamlessly together to create a seasoned sound. Solid rosewood back and sides produce harmonic complexity, coupling beautifully with the dynamic response of the torrefied Sitka spruce top. The Builder’s Edition stamp means that the 717e is detailed with premium features designed to maximise player comfort, including chamfered body edges and a new compound-carve neck profile that compensates for the change in your hand position as you move along the neck. Subtly contoured fretboard edges and a rounded, ridgeless heel add to the guitar’s pleasing fretting-hand feel. Finally, the guitar is finished with a Silent Satin natural finish and ships in a tooled-leather style special edition hardshell case.
