Experience Taylor's High Level Craftsmanship With The Taylor 2019 Builder's Edition 517e Grand Pacific Dreadnought In Natural

Crafted to the exacting standards of their master guitar designer, Andy Powers, the Builder's Edition 517e introduces a warm, vintage-hued sound to the Taylor lineup thanks to the Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape and the tone-boosting V-Class bracing inside. Back and sides of solid mahogany generate rich midrange presence and focus, limiting ringing overtones. The torrefied Sitka spruce top serves up projection and clarity with a touch of extra warmth and depth from our special roasting process, which simulates some of the changes in the wood that occur naturally with age. This Builder's Edition model boasts chamfered edges and a compound-carve neck profile for a seamless feel, along with a Silent Satin finish to reduce incidental noise.

Grand Pacific

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

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

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

Taylor's 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.
