One of the first models to be released with our Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape, the Taylor 317e serves up rich tone and classic vibes. Made in the USA with all-solid tonewoods, the 317e boasts sapele back and sides with a Sitka spruce top, generating a warm, rounded tone that hearkens to old-school acoustic recordings. V-Class bracing dials up the volume and sustain, helping this model produce clear low-end power without the woofiness that can affect some dreadnought-style guitars. A clean appointment package reflects its workhorse utility, and ES2 electronics provide easy amplification. The 317e ships with a deluxe hardshell case.
This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.
One of the best all-around tonewoods there is, sapele will deliver for any playing style.
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
