Read on to find out a bit more about the history behind this particular Builders Edition 517E Wild Honey Burst Pre Owned guitar - Laying the foundation with the exciting award-winning V-Class bracing, the Grand Pacific has all the benefits of a classic country and folk acoustic without the sonic issues of a large bodied guitar. The Grand Pacific 517 sounds defined and vibrant thanks to its Mahogany back and sides, and torrefied Sitka Spruce top. This means the wood has been drained of all moisture and impurities, so it delivers a more transparent, yet stable tone. V-Class bracing takes acoustic voicing to a new level. It improves projection and sustain, which is a necessity for performing guitarists. On the technical side, it also helps with more accurate tuning and intonation. On top of all this, Taylor created a new Curve Wing bridge for better picking hand placement. The rolled fretboard edges and chamfered body have been delicately crafted to fit the shape of your body and hands. Nothing beats a fast satin neck. The compound carved neck profile transitions from a slight ‘V’ to a rounded ‘C’ moving towards the nut, complimenting your hand’s natural position.
