Taylor Builder’s Edition 517e
Guided by the idea that the better a guitar feels, the better we tend to play (and sound), the Builder’s Edition guitars boast premium, player-friendly details that provide a naturally smooth feel. Ergonomic features offered with different models include chambered body edges, a carved armrest, a beveled cutaway and a compound carve neck profile.
The V-Class bracing is a game-changing internal voicing framework—a new sonic engine—that improves the way the guitar top responds to the vibrating strings, producing more volume and sustain. V-Class also improves the guitar’s intonation, creating more harmonic agreement between notes all along the fretboard. The result is unmatched tonal clarity, power and uniformity.
