Taylor Builder's Edition 717e: A Modern Classic

Embrace the perfect blend of nostalgia and innovation with the Taylor Builder's Edition 717e, a masterpiece crafted to redefine the acoustic guitar experience. Designed by Taylor's master guitar designer, Andy Powers, this guitar introduces a warm, seasoned tone within the iconic Grand Pacific body shape. Combining traditional aesthetics with groundbreaking features, the Builder's Edition 717e offers unmatched playing comfort and exceptional sound quality.

Unrivaled Tone and Comfort

With solid Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top supported by V-Class bracing, the Builder's Edition 717e produces rounded notes and clear, powerful low-end tones. Its slightly scooped midrange provides natural space for vocals, while the rosewood's chime-like trebles complement the overall tonal spectrum. Crafted for optimum playability, this guitar features a compound carve neck profile and rolled fretboard edges, ensuring seamless hand movement along the neck and enhanced comfort during extended playing sessions.

Timeless Design, Modern Innovation

The torrefied spruce top infuses the Builder's Edition 717e with a touch of old-soul sweetness, creating an open, played-in character reminiscent of vintage instruments. This guitar also boasts player-focused features such as chamfered body edges and a Silent Satin finish, reducing incidental noise for a more immersive playing experience. Whether you're a seasoned performer or a passionate enthusiast, the Builder's Edition 717e offers a unique take on the Taylor acoustic sound, promising inspiration and enjoyment for years to come.
