Taylor Guitars is proud to introduce the 317e Grand Pacific, a revolutionary acoustic-electric that shatters expectations. Master luthier Andy Powers has crafted an all-solid-wood guitar with a round-shoulder dreadnought body and groundbreaking V-Class bracing that unlocks unprecedented volume, sustain and pitch accuracy. The 317e Grand Pacific's sapele back and sides pair with a Sitka spruce top to produce a bold, complex voice that flatters any genre. When plugged in, Taylor's ES2 electronics faithfully amplify the 317e Grand Pacific's acoustic character with intuitive controls for dialing in your perfect tone.

V-Class Bracing Unleashes the 317e Grand Pacific's Potential

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a sonic revolution that provides the 317e Grand Pacific's top with ideal stiffness and flexibility. Notes ring loud and clear, blooming with rich overtones and the entire fretboard is brought into tune for chords that shimmer with harmonic cohesion. Strum boldly without fear of choking out the treble and fingerpick to unlock the 317e Grand Pacific's responsive, piano-like clarity.

A New Body Shape Born to Project

The round-shoulder dreadnought body of the 317e Grand Pacific generates power and depth tailored for any stage or studio. Pushing air with high-fidelity resonance, this innovative shape produces consistent tone that cuts through a mix while supporting vocals or other instruments with its robust low end.

All-Solid-Wood Construction and Lifetime Quality

As with all Taylor guitars, the 317e Grand Pacific is built to last a lifetime and provide consistently inspiring tone. Hand-selected solid sapele and Sitka spruce are crafted with Taylor's signature quality and attention to detail, yielding an instrument that plays like a dream right out of the case and only improves with age.

Plug in and Inspire with ES2 Electronics

Taylor's ES2 pickup system captures the 317e Grand Pacific's acoustic voice with stunning realism for an unparalleled plugged-in experience. Sculpt your tone to perfection with independent bass and treble controls, blend the sound of the soundhole pickup and saddle transducer to your taste and switch between the two pickups for crisp attack or ambient depth.
