The Builder’s Edition 717e combines unmatched playing comfort with seasoned, warm tone in the Grand Pacific body shape, a modern round-shoulder reimagining of the classic Dreadnought. A traditional design with nostalgic looks, this model is packed with groundbreaking innovations from Taylor master gjuitar designer Andy Powers. Back and sides of solid Indian rosewood match up with a torrefied Sitka spruce top powered by V-Class bracing, together producing rounded notes and clear, usable low-end power. A slightly scooped midrange will leave some natural room for vocals, while rosewood's chime-like trebles mesh with overtones across the tonal spectrum. Individual notes overlap and seamlessly blend into each other, maintaining a tonal clarity that makes this model an excellent choice for recording guitarists. The torrefied spruce top lends this Grand Pacific a touch of old-soul sweetness, adding an open, played-in character normally unlocked by playing a guitar for many years. As a member of the Builder's Edition lineup, this 717e features a compound carve neck profile that accommodates hand movement along the neck, with rolled fretboard edges for an even more comfortable feel. Additional player-focused features include chamfered body edges a Silent Satin finish that reduces incidental noise as you play. If you're looking for a unique take on the Taylor acoustic sound in a more traditional package, the Builders Edition 717e is sure to inspire you for years to come.
