Part of Taylors inaugural class of Grand Pacific guitars,the Builders Edition 717 builds on a long tradition of rosewood/sprucedreadnoughts, but breaks new ground with an entirely new Taylor sound.
The round-shoulder dreadnought shape,featuring Taylorsaward-winning V-Class bracing, produces warm, seasoned acoustic tone in whichindividual notes overlap and blend smoothly together, while the low-end powercommon among dreadnoughts boasts greater clarity here.
V-Class brings extra punch and sustain, along with improvedintonation and musicality across the entire frequency spectrum. Together withrosewoods harmonic complexity and the played-in sound of the torrefied spruce top, players canexpect rich, luxurious tonal character from top to bottom.
Its a voice comfortably rooted in a traditional sound, yetupdated to offer more expressive musical range. As a Builders Edition model,the 717 also sports an array of premium, player-friendly features: chamferedbody edges, rolled fretboard edges, and a new compound-carve neck profile,whose contours match the natural adjustments in the players hand position whenmoving up and down the fretboard.
