With its warm sonic character and lush, blooming overtones, the rosewood/spruce tonewood combination is the perfect match for the Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape. In the 417e, that pairing serves up a seasoned, blended response with clear low-end power, pristine trebles and a slightly scooped midrange—perfect for everything from songwriting to ensemble play to recording. Our V-Class bracing design adds more volume and longer sustain, and the built-in ES2 electronics ensure clear, authentic tone whenever you need to plug in. Aesthetic details include a sunburst top finish and new Finial inlays. The 417e ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
