    Taylor 517e Builders Edition Electro Acoustic V-Class WHB

    Grand Pacific Shape

    The new Grand Pacific body shape is a bold move from Taylor. It has been designed by Taylor’s Master luthier Andy Powers as an attempt to improve the Dreadnought. Andy wanted to create a great guitar that did away with certain issues associated with the dreadnought design.

    Beautiful, Quality Woods

    The 517e is made with a sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The top has been torrefied to bring out a mature and confident tone. The process also gives the wood a gorgeous, honeyed look.

    Expression System 2

    This is widely recognised as one of the greatest acoustic pickup systems available. It translates every ounce of tone, detail and dynamic from your fingertips, strings and guitar wood. This gives the audience an accurate and fully realistic translation of your performance.

    V-Class Bracing

    Developed by Taylor’s Master Builder Andy Powers, this is an innovative new style of bracing. It tackles the issue of achieving sustain and tone without sacrificing volume. V-Class bracing allows the guitar’s top to move and vibrate in a more stable manner, resulting in more focus and response from the wood. This control means more volume and projection. The ‘V’ of the bracing travels the middle of the guitar, maintaining rigidity and lending sustain and resonance to your notes. V-Class bracing means a louder, richer sound with better intonation and response.
