About This Listing

We're back with more of your favorite "used" Taylor models, fresh off the dock and directly from Taylor! These guitars are a combination of customer returns, samples, roadshow models, and new old stock models. Taylor does not offer a warranty on these guitars but many are in like new condition or only show very light use. They are inspected by Taylor, and at our tech shop as well, and any set ups needed are performed! They are all guaranteed with our 45 day no questions asked return policy.

A gorgeous Wild Honey Burst together with an artfully muted Silent Satin finish conjure the warm aesthetic of an older guitar on this version of our mahogany/torrefied spruce Builder’s Edition 517. Among the first generation of Grand Pacific guitars, this flattop pairs a refined feel with a new flavor of acoustic tone that may surprise players who think they know the Taylor sound. An exciting new entry into the dreadnought category, this round-shoulder Grand Pacific resonates with a finely-honed balance of low-end power and clarity across the middle and upper registers, producing warm, rounded tone in which notes blend seamlessly together to create a seasoned sound. Back and sides of neo-tropical mahogany flavor the sound with dry, woody character, coupling beautifully with the dynamic response of the torrefied Sitka spruce top. The Builder’s Edition stamp means that the 517 is detailed with premium features designed to maximize player comfort, including chamfered body edges and a new compound-carve neck profile that compensates for the change in your hand position as you move along the neck. Subtly contoured fretboard edges and a rounded, ridgeless heel add to the guitar’s pleasing fretting-hand feel, while our refined Curve Wing bridge shape brings extra comfort to your pick hand. Under the hood, V-Class bracing enables the guitar to pump out stunning projection and sustain, plus nearly perfect intonation, which means you won’t have to worry about sour notes on the fretboard. Between its sound and feel, the Builder’s Edition 517 once again raises the bar on the Taylor playing experience.

This guitar is in minty condition. Please see photos for full cosmetic details.

Includes Taylor hard shell case.
