Taylor 317 Grand Pacific Acoustic, Natural
Taylor 317 Grand Pacific Electro-Acoustic, V-Class, Natural
The Taylor 317 Electro Acoustic Guitar has a Grand Pacific body shape which is a versatile new round-shoulder dreadnought that delivers a warm, seasoned sound with a full dynamic range and a clear low end.
The top is made from Sitka spruce, which is the most common spruce wood in use today. It delivers plenty of volume and ages nicely over the first four or five years of the guitar’s life, improving with time.
The back and sides are made from Sapele which has the same properties as mahogany, delivering a sweet sound and is responsive to a lighter touch, blending well with other acoustic instruments.
The 317 has Taylor’s innovative V-Class bracing, which channels the energy through the guitar in a way that holds the centre of the top more rigidly than the sides, which respond with a rocking motion (not actually visible to the eye, of course). The result is an improvement in volume up the neck, better intonation, and a noticeable change in the way notes blend further up the fretboard.
The neck is made from tropical mahogany and is topped with a 20-fret West African Crelicam Ebony fretboard, which comes from Taylor’s ebony sawmill in Cameroon and provides a sustainable source of high-quality ebony to use on their guitars.
The Taylor 317 is completed with Italian acrylic gemstone inlays on the fretboard and pegheads, a three-ring rosette, a black pickguard, and comes with a Taylor Deluxe Hardshell-Western Floral Case.
