Builder's Edition 717 WHB
One of a pair of Builder's Edition models that launched the Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape, the Builder's Edition 717 WHB boasts Indian rosewood back and sides with a torrefied spruce top. Together with the V-Class bracing inside, the all-solid tonewoods generate clear low-end power and chime-like trebles that blend together into a seasoned whole with plenty of volume and blooming sustain. A striking Wild Honey Burst color treatment treatment gives this model a classic look along with the noise-reducing Silent Satin finish. For comfort, players will appreciate the rounded body and fretboard edges, as well as the compound carve neck profile that lends this guitar a more accommodating, seamless feel. It ships with a hardshell case.
This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.
The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
Whether you’re an acoustic purist or simply don’t need a pickup, we’ve got you covered.
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.
