What is A Grand Pacific Guitar?
The Grand Pacific guitar shape is an evolution of the traditional dreadnought guitar, with elegantly rounded shoulders
While your standard dreadnought guitar can give you big low-end, the sound is often muddy and lacks clarity.
With the Taylor 717e Grand Pacific guitar, you get that big low-end but with much more clarity across the entire spectrum.
The end result is a much more versatile take on the dreadnought sound that’ll be enjoyed by all styles of guitarist, including fingerstyle players.
Crafting the Taylor Builder’s Edition 717e
Carrying on the long tradition of Rosewood and Spruce top dreadnought guitars, the Taylor Builder’s Edition 717e has a torrefied Sitka Spruce top along with Indian Rosewood back and sides.
The torrefied Sitka Spruce top gives you loud, rich and resonant tone with the character of a guitar beyond its years.
This great tone is complemented by the Indian Rosewood back and sides’ added warm bass and resonance.
Making a huge departure from the usual X-style bracing, V-Class bracing can be found within the Taylor Builder’s Edition 717e electro-acoustic guitar.
Drastically changing the way the solid Sitka Spruce vibrates, V-Class bracing ensures more powerful projection and improved sustain.
