With its unique round-shoulder dreadnought silhouette, revolutionary V-class bracing, and dramatically different tonal personality, Taylor's 317e Grand Pacific blazes new ground for Taylor. Featuring solid sapele back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, this alluring acoustic-electric guitar delivers a seductively bold and versatile tonal profile that is perfectly amplified by the onboard ES2 electronics. Boasting the understated elegance of Taylor's 3 Series, the 317e Grand Pacific is graced by a curvaceous black pickguard and beautiful Italian acrylic gemstone fingerboard inlays. Its tropical mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard play flawlessly. The 317e Grand Pacific is an amazing guitar and an incredible value.
