    Freshen Your Sonic Palette With This Taylor Builder's Edition 517e Acoustic Electric Guitar - Tropical Mahogany, With Natural Spruce Top

    An exciting new entry into the dreadnought category, this round-shoulder Grand Pacific resonates with a fresh sonic palette that incorporates a finely-honed balance of low-end power and clarity across the middle and upper registers, producing warm, rounded tone. Notes blend seamlessly together to create a seasoned sound. 

    Among the first generation of Taylor's Grand Pacific dreadnought guitars, the neo-tropical mahogany/torrefied spruce Builder's Edition 517e dramatically expands the Taylor line's sonic palette with a new flavor of acoustic tone that may surprise players who think they know the Taylor sound.

    Back and sides of neo-tropical mahogany flavor the sound with dry, woody character, coupling beautifully with the dynamic response of the torrefied Sitka spruce top.

    Under the hood, V-Class bracing enables the guitar to pump out stunning projection and sustain - plus nearly perfect intonation. With Taylor's proprietary onboard ES2 electronics, the guitar's tonal virtues shine for all amplified applications.

    The Builder's Edition stamp means that the 517e is detailed with premium features designed to maximize player comfort, including chamfered body edges and a new compound-carve neck profile that compensates for the change in your hand position as you move along the neck. Subtly contoured fretboard edges and a rounded, ridgeless heel add to the guitar's pleasing fretting-hand feel, while a refined bridge shape brings extra comfort to your pick hand. 

    For it's sound and feel, the Builder's Edition 517e once again raises the bar on the Taylor playing experience.
