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.

Exclusive Builder’s Edition Features

Coming with several exclusive features, Taylor Builder’s Edition guitars offer incredible playability.

A new compound-carve neck profile is used, complementing the way your fretting hand shifts position as you move around the neck.

At the nut end of the neck, it has a subtle V shape that gradually becomes a rounded C as you move towards the rounded, ridgeless heel. This great comfort and playability are complemented by the rolled fretboard edges.

The body of the Taylor Builder’s Edition 717e features chamfered edges making it even more comfortable to hold.

The bridge is also more comfortable for your pick hand thanks to its new curve wing shape with rounded edges and refined contouring.

Includes New Deluxe Hardshell Case

A fantastic evolution of the dreadnought guitar, delivering refined performance and incredible playability, the Taylor Builder’s Edition 717e Grand Pacific guitar is seriously impressive.

Better yet; it comes to you in a new deluxe hardshell case with a luxurious interior that has a Western floral pattern resembling tooled leather – the perfect way to transport and store your new Taylor guitar.

Buy the Taylor Builder’s Edition 717e electro-acoustic guitar from Professional Music Technology and enjoy this new and improved incarnation of the dreadnought guitar.
