The Builder's Edition 717 helped introduced Taylor's Grand Pacific body shape to the world, offering a rounded, blended tone that might surprise players who think they know the Taylor sound. Indian rosewood back and sides generate deep lows and pristine trebles, and the torrefied spruce top adds a bit of sweetness that usually comes with years of play. The dreadnought-style body serves up a big, throaty response with clear low-end power that translates beautifully through microphones, without the boominess that accompanies some larger-bodied instruments. Chamfered body and fretboard edges, a compound-carve neck profile that accommodates the movement of your fretting hand down the ebony fingerboard, and a noise-reducing Silent Satin finish all enhance the playing experience. This model includes a deluxe hardshell case.
