Overview

Builder's Edition 717e WHB

The Builder's Edition 717e WHB takes Taylor into new musical territory with a seasoned tone and classic vibes. Indian rosewood and torrefied Sitka spruce pair up to produce a richly textured acoustic response, generating clear trebles and clear low-end power. V-Class bracing and innovative design touches help eliminate the "woofiness" that often comes with dreadnought guitars, making this a great option for recording purposes. The torrefied top adds some played-in sweetness right out of the box, and chamfered body edges and compound neck carve make for a pleasingly accommodating experience. This model sports a Wild Honey Burst color treatment with its Silent Satin finish, and includes 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.
