Taylor 317e, V-Class

The Grand Pacific 317e features Taylor’s new round-shoulder dreadnought body shape and V-Class bracing. Quite unlike other 300 series Taylor models, the 317e has a warm and seasoned acoustic voice with clear low-end power and notes that blend together smoothly. Built with solid sapele back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, the guitar’s tonal response offers some of the dry and focused character of mahogany with a hint of rosewood’s complexity and overtones; and the body’s wider waist helps produce a strong bass.

V-Class bracing adds to the power and sustain and allows for improved intonation, making this a versatile guitar that’s perfect for jamming, vocal accompaniment or solo instrumental playing. Plus, the on-board ES2 pickup system sounds great on stage.

Round neck carve with 1-3/4” nut and 25.5” scale. Ebony fingerboard and bridge, gloss top, satin finished back, sides, and neck.

With Taylor Deluxe hardshell case finished in Western Floral Tolex.
