Taylor 50th Anniversary 217e-SB Plus LTD Acoustic Electric Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Introducing the Taylor 50th Anniversary 217e-SB Plus LTD Acoustic Electric Guitar, a stunning addition to the 50th Anniversary Collection that showcases the Grand Pacific body style within the revered 200 Series.

Crafted with a combination of layered Indian rosewood back and sides and a solid torrefied Sitka spruce top, the 217e-SB Plus LTD offers a harmonious blend of sonic extension, warmth, and clarity. The torrefied top, finished in a rich tobacco-colored sunburst, infuses the instrument with a mature, aged-in sound that is both sweet and playable. Enhanced by sound-improving C-class bracing, this guitar delivers increased volume, extended sustain, and enhanced bass presence.

The round-shouldered dreadnought body shape of the 217e-SB Plus LTD combines crisp bass power with a round, wide tone, making it versatile enough to excel in various playing styles, from strumming to flatpicking to gentle fingerpicking. This limited edition model features exquisite diamond fingerboard inlays, gold tuners, ebony bridge pins with gold dots, and a commemorative label on the reverse back, adding to its visual allure and collector's appeal.

Equipped with Taylor's Expression System® 2 electronics, this guitar ensures seamless amplification and pristine sound reproduction in any performance setting. It comes complete with a rugged AeroCase for secure transportation and protection.

With production limited to just 1,974 guitars worldwide, the Taylor 50th Anniversary 217e-SB Plus LTD is a rare and coveted instrument that celebrates Taylor's legacy of excellence and innovation. Whether you're a seasoned professional or an avid enthusiast, this guitar promises unparalleled tone, playability, and aesthetic elegance that will inspire your musical journey for years to come.

Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument.
