AD17e
This Grand Pacific dreadnought was forged from Taylor creativity during times of unprecedented global challenges in 2020. Solid ovangkol back and sides bring much of the sparkle and low-end presence you would expect from rosewood, plus a leveled-up midrange for a truly balanced sound up and down the neck. With a solid spruce top, the Grand Pacific body shape produces warm, seasoned acoustic tone reminiscent of vintage acoustic recordings. V-Class bracing adds its tone-enhancing magic to the mix, producing louder notes and chords that sustain and bloom with impeccable intonation. Together, the tonewood pairing, body shape, and interior bracing add up to a versatile workhorse, capable of filling a room with rich cowboy chords or soft fingerpicked melodies. Aesthetically, the AD17e is detailed with minimal appointments to preserve its classic character. Chamfered body edges, stained spruce edge trim, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, and a faux tortoiseshell pickguard add to the refined visuals, with an Urban Sienna stain for the back and sides and a thin 2-mil matte finish optimizing the guitar’s lively acoustic response. It ships with built-in ES2 electronics in a Taylor AeroCase.

FEATURES
  • Grand Pacific Body Shape: This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.
  • Sitka Spruce Top: The soundboard of choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
  • Ovangkol Back & Sides: Although not as well-known as its Indian rosewood cousin, ovangkol shares many of the same properties, making it a versatile, great-sounding tonewood.
  • Expression System 2 Pickup: The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
  • V-Class Bracing: A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
