Taylor presents the 317e Grand Pacific Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Featuring the unique Grand Pacific body shape, and powered by customized V Class bracing, the Taylor 317e Grand Pacific is a versatile guitar that evokes notes that blend together smoothly to create a warm, seasoned sound with clear low-end power. Sapele back and sides complement the Sitka spruce top to create a sound that’s a nice, dry blend of mahogany with a touch of sparkle commonly found in rosewood. The Expression System 2 electronics allow the natural sound of the guitar to be amplified. The 317e Grand Pacific round shoulder dreadnought is for the player looking for a Taylor sound unlike anything before, perfect for strumming yet appealing for fingerstyle players as well.

Grand Pacific Round Shoulder Dreadnought Body Shape
Taylor’s Grand Pacific body shape unleashes a truly unique sound in this amazing round shoulder dreadnought. This guitar design redefines the tonal qualities one might normally associate with a Taylor guitar. Master guitar builder Andy Powers set out to create a guitar with warm and seasoned notes that blend smoothly together and would appeal to a variety of players. He wanted to capture a sound that was unique and familiar at the same time.

V Class Bracing Customized for the Grand Pacific
Taylor's revolutionary V Class bracing helps improve sustain and volume, and behaves like an acoustic transducer for the top of guitar. In addition to enhancing volume and sustain, it manipulates the soundboard energy in a way that improves intonation. This yields greater volume and power in the upper register and improves the sonic arrangement of fundamental notes and overtones. This innovation allows for greater low-end power, better control of sound, and creates warm and round sonic overtones.

Stage-Ready Taylor Expression System 2 Electronics
The Taylor Expression System 2 is an award-winning electronics system that captures the natural sound of the guitar when plugged in. A proprietary, three-piezo pickup mounted behind the saddle creates a more clear and accurate sound. The active pre-amp offers volume, bass, and treble controls in a sleek, unobtrusive design to allow you to shape your tone and a phase switch optimizes your sound while offering feedback reduction depending on your environment.
