Builder's Edition 717

The Builder's Edition 717 helped introduced Taylor's Grand Pacific body shape to the world, offering a rounded, blended tone that might surprise players who think they know the Taylor sound. Indian rosewood back and sides generate deep lows and pristine trebles, and the torrefied spruce top adds a bit of sweetness that usually comes with years of play. The dreadnought-style body serves up a big, throaty response with clear low-end power that translates beautifully through microphones, without the boominess that accompanies some larger-bodied instruments. Chamfered body and fretboard edges, a compound-carve neck profile that accommodates the movement of your fretting hand down the ebony fingerboard, and a noise-reducing Silent Satin finish all enhance the playing experience. This model includes a deluxe hardshell case.


Grand Pacific

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

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

No Electronics

Whether you’re an acoustic purist or simply don’t need a pickup, we’ve got you covered.
