With the introduction this year of the Grand Pacific body, Taylor Guitars has made a bold and pleasing move in the world of Dreadnought shaped guitars. Characteristically for Taylor, this slope shouldered dreadnought is a forward looking new take on the traditional guitar shape, featuring their new V-class bracing, which provides generous amounts of power and sustain. These guitars have a warm and smoothly blended tone with a full bass and great dynamic range. While powerful, the lows and mids also have a clarity which comes through when plugged in with the ES2 system, and the high notes are very much there for you when taking a solo. The 317e features solid sapele back and sides and a solid sitka spruce top. The new Western Floral design is a nice addition to the high quality hardshell case.
