Builder's Edition 517e
Grand Pacific er Taylor sin helt nye kroppsform, en dreadnought med avrundede skuldre og Taylor sin prisbelønte V-class bracing. I motsetning til Taylor sine tidligere Dreadnoughts, låter Grand Pacific med avrundede skuldre mer tradisjonelt, har en mer fokusert mellomtone og appellerer til de som er ute etter såkalt "vintage" lyd. Bygget med Mahogany i sarg og bunn (heltre) i kombinasjon med torrefied sikta gran (heltre), gir dette gitaren som sagt en fokusert mellomtone men også en utrolig dynamisk respons. Kroppens bredere midje bidrar dessuten til å gi en sterkt og thight bassrespon.

Etter den vellykkede lanseringen av Taylors nye og innovative bracing-design (V-Class), markerer Grand Pacific et avvik fra det som mange ville vurdere som den eksepsjonelle Taylor-lyden: lyse, individuelle toner som resonerer separat, med massevis av topp og klarhet. Grand Pacific står for et litt annet sound; Takket være den bredere midjen og V-class bracingen, er tonen rundere og bredere, for å skape en varmere klang, krydret med masse personlighet. Gitaren produserer dessuten en kraftig bassrespons, men uten at det låter "muddy".

Bulider's Edition-stempelet betyr at 517e har detaljer som er designet for å gi maksimal spillekomfort, inkludert avrundede kanter på kroppen, en ny compound halsprofil som kompenserer for endringen i posisjonen hånden din får når du beveger deg langs halsen. Svakt avrundene kanter inn mot gripebrettet, et ergonomisk utformet halsinnfeste og et rafinert bridge design legger grunnlaget for utsøkt spillekomfort. Under panseret finner vi det nye V-class bracing designet som gir gitaren forbedret projeksjon, sustain og tilnærmet perfekt intonasjon, hvilket betyr at du ikke trenger å kjempe med sure noter noe sted på gripebrettet.

Grand Pacific
Taylor's 517e Grand Pacific Builder's Edition dreadnought is a seriously cool guitar! With its round-shoulder silhouette and dramatically different tonal personality, this amazing acoustic-electric blazes new ground for Taylor. The 517e Grand Pacific also boasts Taylor's revolutionary V-Class Bracing that bolsters both volume and sustain. The bracing also improves intonation, giving each note more power, uniformity, and harmonic synergy with other notes. These enhancements deliver a more expressive, highly musical voice for you to explore. Featuring solid Neo-Tropical mahogany back and sides and topped with solid torrefied Sitka spruce, the Grand Pacific delivers a unique, bold, and versatile tonal profile.

V-Class Bracing: a sonic revelation
Bracing is the internal framework of an acoustic guitar that helps shape its sound. Although X-bracing has been standard in acoustic guitars for over a century, it creates an innate conflict between two key elements of a guitar’s sound: volume and sustain. The guitar's top (its soundboard) contributes to both. The flexibility of the top generates volume (projection), while its stiffness generates sustain. And with X-braced guitar tops, here's where the trade-off comes in: when something is made stiffer, its flexibility is reduced (and vice versa).

V-Class bracing changes all that. With Taylor's V-Class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-Class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and hence sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It's the best of both worlds. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation; not only producing notes that are louder and with longer sustain — but more in tune with each other. Guitarists are gobsmacked. But don't take our word for it — pick up the superb Taylor 517e Grand Pacific Builder's Edition and experience it for yourself!

Exceptional tonewoods
Mahogany is treasured for its punchy midrange bloom and strongly focused, earthy, and somewhat dry fundamental without a preponderance of ringing overtones. An acoustic guitar with mahogany back and sides easily in a track, which is why engineers and studio guitarists tend to prefer "hogs" for tracking. The 517e Grand Pacific features back and sides of solid, responsibly sourced Neo-Tropical mahogany and a top of torrefied solid Sitka spruce with Taylor's tone-enhancing V-Class bracing, which takes the guitar's native versatility to an entirely new level. The torrefication process thermally cures the wood to deliver a more played-in tone, and together with the V-Class bracing, gives you a highly responsive and expressive instrument with increased dynamic range, robust projection and sustain, and harmonic synergy when chording up the entire fingerboard.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 517e Grand Pacific. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the guitar's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
