The Taylor 417e-R, seen here in a Tobacco Sunburst finish, sees the introduction of the game-changing Grand Pacific guitar design to the illustrious 400 Series.

This versatile and inspiring guitar can truly help you take your playing to the next level.

Taylor 417e-R Electro Acoustic, Tobacco Sunburst Key Features

  • Grand Pacific Body Shape - 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.
  • Innovative Bracing Design - 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 417e-R’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.
  • Premium Tonewood Combination - The tried and tested, and some say “ultimate”, combination of woods is at play here with solid Sitka Spruce acting as the 417e-R’s top with solid Indian Rosewood making up the back and sides. Known for its broad dynamic range, Spruce is extremely versatile and suits a wide range of playing styles, making it the perfect top wood for a Grand Auditorium guitar. One of the most popular tonewoods of all time, Indian Rosewood is also exceptionally versatile and brings a deep resonance and expressiveness via the back and sides of the 417e-R.
  • Superb Electronics -At the heart of the Taylor 417e-R you'll find the innovative ES2 pickup and preamp. This incredbile electronics system offers a more dynamic range of acoustic sound than ever before! Simply plug your Taylor 417e into a front of house PA system, your favourite acoustic amp, or even directly into recording software, and you'll be guaranteed a faithful conveyance of your guitar's gorgeous tone.
  • Hardshell Case Included - To keep this guitar safe as you travel to and from your performances, Taylor has included a Deluxe Hardshell Case. This rugged case features an internal accessory pocket, ensuring that you can keep your spare strings, tuner, plectrums and more close to hand at all times.
