Taylor's Builder's Edition 717e is one of their first Grand Pacific acoustics, and it builds on the time-tested tonal foundation of rosewood and spruce with a few new groundbreaking features that truly set it apart. Its round-shoulder dreadnought body shape features Taylor's award-winning V-Class bracing, yielding a warm, balanced tone that's perfect for flatpicking big, booming chords. Its Sitka spruce top has also been torrefied, which brings a whole new layer of harmonic sweetness and gives the overall sound and feel of a guitar that's broken in. And as a Builder's Edition model, this Taylor comes with several premium features designed to maximize playability. These include chamfered body edges, rolled fretboard edges, and an all-new compound-carve neck profile for smooth fretting-hand feel at any point on the neck. And with Taylor's gig-ready ES2 electronics, your tone is always faithfully translated when playing plugged-in, whether live or in-studio. With its stunning craftsmanship and attention to detail, you won't want to miss out on the Taylor Builder's Edition 717e.
