Overview

Builder's Edition 717e

Watch Video

Blending a traditional look and sound with a modern, relaxed feel, the Builder's Edition 717e serves up a seasoned tone that will remind players of vintage acoustic recordings. Indian rosewood and torrefied Sitka spruce deliver clear bass-range power and pristine trebles, resulting in a richly textured sound with lush overtones and a dash of extra sweetness from the specially roasted top. The Grand Pacific body features V-Class bracing for greater volume and sustain, along with chamfered edges to provide a more comfortable feel. A compound carve neck profile accommodates your hand as you move down the neck, and the Silent Satin finish reduces incidental noise. The Builder's Edition 717e ships with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.

Features

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.

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.
