Looking for a guitar that offers both vintage sound and modern innovation? Look no further than the Taylor AD17e Grand Pacific Dreadnought, available at Acoustic Centre, your trusted local guitar shop and online guitar store.

Crafted from solid ovangkol back and sides and a solid spruce top, this guitar offers a rich, balanced tone that's perfect for everything from cowboy chords to fingerpicked melodies. The V-Class bracing system adds to the magic, producing louder notes and chords with impeccable intonation.

The AD17e is a true workhorse, capable of filling a room with its warm sound. It's also stunningly beautiful, with chamfered body edges, stained spruce edge trim, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, and a faux tortoiseshell pickguard. An Urban Sienna stain on the back and sides and a thin 2-mil matte finish optimize the guitar’s lively acoustic response.

Plus, with built-in ES2 electronics and a Taylor AeroCase included, this guitar is ready to hit the stage or studio. Trust the experts at Acoustic Centre to help you find the perfect Taylor AD17e Grand Pacific Dreadnought for your needs, whether you shop in-store or online.

Includes Taylor Aerocase padded gig bag.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. 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. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
