The Marquise inlay design, crafted with faux pearl Italian acrylic, further elevates the guitar's visual appeal, setting it apart with an aura of grace and distinction.

Crafted for ultimate playability, the 517e features a Neo-Tropical Mahogany neck, delivering a comfortable and smooth playing experience, while the West African Crelicam Ebony fretboard ensures effortless navigation along the 24-7/8" scale length, providing the freedom to explore every musical nuance.
