Introducing the Taylor Builder’s Edition 517e, a standout among the inaugural Taylor Grand Pacific guitars. This model significantly broadens Taylor's sonic range, offering an acoustic tone that may pleasantly surprise those familiar with the traditional Taylor sound. Positioned as an exciting addition to the dreadnought category, the round-shoulder Grand Pacific delivers a balanced blend of low-end power and clarity. The neo-tropical mahogany back and sides look incredible, aesthetically offering a peek into the wood grain that delivers a dry, woody character, pairing beautifully with the torrified Sitka spruce top's dynamic response.
Bearing the Builder’s Edition insignia, the 517 boasts premium features aimed at enhancing player comfort. This includes chamfered body edges and a compound-carve neck profile that adjusts to hand's changing position along the neck. Subtle fretboard contours, a ridgeless heel, and an optimized bridge shape contribute to a satisfying feel and enhanced comfort for players picking hand. The V-Class bracing under the hood allows for projection, sustain and intonation, eliminating concerns about off-key notes on the fretboard.
Moreover, this model comes with a deluxe hardshell guitar case featuring a luxurious exterior adorned with a Western floral pattern reminiscent of finely tooled leather.
