The Taylor Grand Pacific 317 (with Taylor’s award-winning bracing) is a clear step towards a new sonority. With this instrument you’ll see the notes mixing smoothly together to produce a warm, seasoned acoustic sound with a clear bass power.
Its back and sides are made with solid Sapelly and its top with solid Sitka spruce. The tonal response is clearly situated between the dry character of mahogany and the harmonicity of the rosewood. In addition, the bass clarity of the 317 mixes equally with mids and highs, producing a rich and dynamic tone.
The V-Class bracing, perfectly made for this Grand Pacific body type, increases the power and sustain of the instrument, offering a much better intonation. This makes this guitar a versatile tool that you can use to play with other musicians, alongside a vocalist or solo.
