The Grand Pacific 317e features a new round-shoulder dreadnought body with award-winning V-Class bracing, which together create a powerful, low-end sound you’ll love. Made from solid Sapele back & sides paired with solid Sitka spruce top, you'll find this guitar has an incredibly dynamic response! With the wider base you get more low-end - without the muddiness that typically comes with larger guitars. It also features a slimmer body for added comfort. The ES2 electronics truly capture the nuance this guitar has to offer, which will attract players of all kinds. This 317e is a quality guitar with big sound in an accessible size!
The Grand Pacific 317e, featuring our new round-shoulder dreadnought body voiced with Taylor’s award-winning V-Class bracing, helps usher in a whole new Taylor sound. Notes blend smoothly together to produce a warm and seasoned acoustic voice with clear low-end power. Built with solid sapele back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, the guitar’s tonal response sits comfortably between the dry, focused character of mahogany and the harmonically complex sound of rosewood. The body’s wider waist helps produce a strong bass response, but without the woofiness that can sometimes plague bigger-body guitars. That low-end clarity blends evenly with the guitar’s mids and highs, yielding a rich, dynamic tone with notes that overlap into a seamless whole. Our V-Class bracing, tailored for the Grand Pacific body, dials up the power and sustain, along with improved intonation, making this a versatile tool for jamming with other musicians, playing alongside a vocalist, or embarking on solo adventures. This edition comes equipped with our onboard ES2 electronics, and thanks to the clarity of the low-end frequencies, the guitar will be less inclined to feed back in amplified settings, making it a reliable partner for plugged-in applications. Whatever your musical calling, the Grand Pacific 317e will make an inspiring companion.
