Taylor Builder's Edition 517e Acoustic/Electric, Natural
Taylor Builder's Edition 517e Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Natural
Among the first generation of the Grand Pacific dreadnought guitars, the stunning Taylor Builder's Edition 517e dramatically expands Taylor's sonic palette with a new flavor of acoustic tone that may surprise players who think they know the Taylor sound. This brilliant acoustic is masterfully-crafted from a torrefied Sitka spruce top with V-Class bracing on a neo-tropical mahogany body with a compound carve tropical mahogany neck, all coated in a satin finish. The West African ebony fingerboard feels light and smooth, complete with grained ivoroid arrowhead inlays and an aesthetically-pleasing wood binding.
The proprietary onboard ES2 electronics allows the guitar's tonal virtues to shine for amplified applications — producing a warm, rounded tone in which notes blend seamlessly together to create a seasoned sound. Between its sound and feel, the Builder's Edition 517e once again raises the bar on the Taylor playing experience tenfold.
