Taylor 50th Anniversary 217e-SB Plus - Sunburst with Aerocase

Taylor's 50th Anniversary 217e-SB Plus LTD: A Grand Auditorium Marvel

Taylor's 50th Anniversary collection introduces the extraordinary 217e-SB Plus LTD, a guitar that combines the elegance of a sunburst-top walnut/spruce Grand Auditorium with the power of a Grand Pacific body, a first for the 200 Series. The layered Indian rosewood back and sides, paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top, create a harmonious blend of projection, warmth, clarity, and sustain. The torrefied top not only adds a seasoned look but also enhances dimensional stability for consistent performance in varying climate conditions.

The Power of C-Class Bracing

This guitar features Taylor's proprietary C-Class bracing, which elevates its tonal response, particularly in the low-end frequencies. The result is a robust, full-bodied voice that can tackle everything from strumming to flatpicking to fingerpicking. The Grand Pacific shape makes it a versatile instrument, suitable for a wide range of playing styles.

Elegance Meets Functionality

The 217e-SB Plus LTD boasts elegant appointments, including a rich tobacco sunburst top and a gloss-finish body. Notable visual elements include 50th Anniversary diamond fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic, an Italian acrylic single-ring rosette that contrasts beautifully with the sunburst, black body binding with black and white top purfling, a black pickguard, gold Taylor tuning machines, and ebony bridge pins with gold acrylic dots. These details make it a true collector's piece.

Performance and Protection

Equipped with onboard ES2 electronics, this guitar delivers natural-sounding amplified acoustic tones for live performances or recording sessions. For portability and protection, it comes with a Taylor AeroCase in brown. Inside, a 50th anniversary label commemorates Taylor's milestone year. With its unique tonal character, renowned Taylor playability, and refined visual elements, the 217e-SB Plus LTD is a testament to Taylor's legacy of creating instruments that inspire and elevate the musical experience.
