Overview

AD17e-SB

Watch Video

Serving up warm, seasoned tone in a package that's not too precious for everything from on-stage performance to jam sessions with friends, the AD17e-SB is a Grand Pacific dreadnought crafted with back and sides of solid walnut and a solid spruce top. This acoustic-electric model is designed at the intersection of playability, performance and affordability, blending a woody, punchy midrange character with a low-end response that will grow more pronounced as the wood ages. Our innovative V-Class bracing dials up remarkable volume and sustain, while chamfered body edges and the Taylor Neck make for a relaxed, accommodating feel for all types of players. Aesthetic details include a firestripe faux tortoiseshell pickguard, black top purfling, satin black tuners and a thin matte finish, along with an eye-catching Tobacco Sunburst top. The AD17e-SB ships with ES2 electronics and a lightweight, sturdy AeroCase for storage and transportation.

Features

Grand Pacific

This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.

Walnut

Walnut’s crisp highs are balanced by a deep, woody low end that emerges as the guitar is played in.

Sitka Spruce

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.

V-Class Bracing

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.
