Taylor 517e Tobacco Sunburst

Taylor Authorized Dealer - This item is Brand New with Full Factory Warranty. Fuller's Guitar inspects and sets up each guitar to factory spec before shipping.

With its solid Urban Ironbark back and sides, torrefied spruce top, and Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape, the 517e delivers a totally unique tone profile within the Taylor line. Players will hear a muscular yet sweet response with remarkable balance across the tonal spectrum, offering power and clarity in equal measure. Inside, our V-Class bracing dials up more power and longer sustain, drawing out more of Ironbark's rosewood-esque qualities and enhancing the seasoned, warm character of the Grand Pacific body. Subtle appointments such as a green abalone rosette, faux tortoiseshell binding and Marquise inlays in Italian acrylic round out the package, which includes ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.

Grand Pacific - This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.

Urban Ironbark Body Wood - This tonewood from our urban wood initiative yields power, fidelity and depth for a supremely balanced, muscular sound.

Torrified Sitka Spruce Top Wood - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System® 2 - Captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

V-Class Bracing - Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
