“I’ve never felt as connected to a Taylor as when I played the 517 for the first time,” “I was struck by how the guitar felt in my left hand, as if someone had carved the neck according to my own physiology. It’s a remarkable instrument” “The sound has all the brilliance of the
brand’s history but with a rich, dark color that inspires you to play in way that most guitars don’t.”
—Michael League, a Grammy Award-winning composer, producer, arranger, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, bandleader of the New York based instrumental band Snarky Puppy and the international music ensemble Bokante, and owner and founder of the record label GroundUP Music.
Mahogany, a time-honored tonewood, takes center stage in Taylor's 500 Series, accented by a quartet of top wood options that create a diverse mix of sonic flavors for these guitars. The new Builder’s Edition 517 leads the way, celebrating the debut of the Grand Pacific body style with a sound, feel and look all its own. A torrefied Sitka spruce top, V-Class bracing, and proprietary body contours add up
to a warm, powerful and versatile voice.
The Taylor 517e Grand Pacific makes quite an entrance in the form of this mahogany Builder’s Edition. With feel-good features like our new compound-carve neck profile and Curve Wing bridge, it’s hard to know which will be happier — your ears or your hands.
