What is A Grand Pacific Guitar?
The creation of the Grand Pacific guitar came about as an evolution of the dreadnought guitar. It has that same large size but with round shoulders.
While many dreadnought guitars give you big tone, they also have quite a muddied sound and can lose note definition.
The Grand Pacific gives you that big dreadnought sound with great low-end but with much more clarity.
As a result, the Grand Pacific body shape has all the benefits of a dreadnought guitar but none of the drawbacks, giving you incredible versatility.
Crafting the Taylor 317 Acoustic Guitar
The Taylor 317 has been made with a solid Sitka Spruce top, an incredibly popular tone wood due to its rich tones, broad dynamic range and great resonance.
Having a solid top, the Taylor 317 will sound better with age since the more you play it, the more resonant the wood becomes.
The back and sides are made from solid Sapele which complements the Sitka Spruce top, giving you fantastic tonal response that’s dry, focused and harmonically complex.
V-Class Bracing Tailored for The Grand Pacific
V-Class bracing makes a huge departure from traditional X-bracing, producing notes that are louder and more in tune with each other while enhancing sustain.
With V-Class bracing installed, the Taylor 317’s top is able to be both stiff and flexible at the same time, transforming the way it vibrates, allowing it to produce increased volume and sustain while also improving intonation.
Taking Taylor to New Heights
Taylor always looking for ways to improve tone and playability to give you a better experience as a guitarist. The Grand Pacific body shape is their latest attempt to achieve this and they have certainly delivered.
What’s more, the Taylor 317 Grand Pacific guitar comes to you in a new deluxe hardshell case which boasts a luxurious interior with a beautiful Western floral design – the perfect way to protect your new Taylor guitar.
