Taylor 717e Lefty WHB Builder's Edition Spruce/Rosewood Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Wild Honey Burst

The Builder's Edition 717e Grand Pacific builds on a long tradition of rosewood/spruce dreadnoughts but breaks new ground with an entirely new Taylor sound. The round-shoulder dreadnought shape, featuring Taylor's award-winning V-Class bracing, produces warm, seasoned acoustic tone in which individual notes overlap and blend smoothly together, while the low-end power common among dreadnoughts boasts greater clarity here. As a Builder's Edition model, the 717e also sports an array of premium, player-friendly features: chamfered body edges, rolled fretboard edges, and a new compound-carve neck profile, whose contours match the natural adjustments in the player's hand position when moving up and down the fretboard. Even the bridge design was refined to add a more ergonomic feel for the player's pick hand.

Comes in a Taylor Deluxe Hardshell-Western Floral case.

• Grand Pacific Shape - This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.
• Sitka Spruce Top Wood - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
• Indian Rosewood Body Wood - The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
• The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
• Non-cutaway - The clean, symmetrical look of a traditional acoustic guitar.
• V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
