Compared to the "modern" acoustic sound Taylor has become known for - vibrant and articulate, with clearly defined notes - the Grand Pacific's voice features broad, overlapping notes that blend smoothly together to create a warm, seasoned sound. If you're already a fan of Taylor, the Grand Pacific reveals a uniquely inspiring flavour to explore. If the Taylor sound hasn't been your jam in the past, the Grand Pacific might change your mind. It's definitely a guitar worth a test-drive.

The Grand Pacific 317, featuring Taylor's new round-shoulder dreadnought body voiced with its award-winning V-Class bracing, helps usher in a whole new Taylor sound. Notes blend smoothly together to produce a warm and seasoned acoustic voice with clear low-end power. Built with solid sapele back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, the 317 boasts a tonal response that sits comfortably between the dry, focused character of mahogany and the harmonically complex sound of rosewood. The body's wider waist helps produce a strong bass response, but without the woofiness that can sometimes plague bigger-body guitars. That low-end clarity blends evenly with the guitar's mids and highs, yielding a rich, dynamic tone with notes that overlap into a seamless whole.

V-Class bracing, tailored for the Grand Pacific body, dials up the power and sustain, along with improved intonation, making this a versatile tool for jamming with other musicians, playing alongside a vocalist, or embarking on solo adventures.

One of the first models to be released with our Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape, the Taylor 317e serves up rich tone and classic vibes. Made in the USA with all-solid tonewoods, the 317e boasts sapele back and sides with a Sitka spruce top, generating a warm, rounded tone that hearkens to old-school acoustic recordings. V-Class bracing dials up the volume and sustain, helping this model produce clear low-end power without the woofiness that can affect some dreadnought-style guitars. A clean appointment package reflects its workhorse utility, and ES2 electronics provide easy amplification. The 317e ships with a deluxe hardshell case.
