The Taylor Builder's Edition are a really interesting range of acoustics created by Taylor’s Master guitar designer, Andy Powers, and they represent what Taylor say is the peak of their design philosophy, the next step in the evolution of acoustic guitar design, offering a whole new level of comfort and tonality.
Whilst still remaining relatively traditional in appearance, these guitars feature some pretty unconventional, but really innovative design elements that you won’t find on most standard Taylor models. These include refined variations of classic body shapes with unique contouring and edge bevelling, compound neck profiles, rolled edge fingerboards and ergonomically designed bridges, which all combine to maximise playing comfort.
Key features of the Taylor 717 include:
- Solid Torrefied Spruce Top
- Solid Indian Rosewood Back & Sides
- V-Class Bracking
- Grand Pacific Body Design (Round Shoulder Dreadnought)
- Chamfered body edging
- Compound Carved Neck Profile with Ridgeless Heel
