Brand new Taylor 417e with solid rosewood and Grand Pacific Body Shape!
With the 417e-R, Taylor brings the acclaimed Grand Pacific Bodyshape to the 4 Series. The result is a very exciting guitar that really has its own signature. First of all, the 417e-R has a solid spruce top, which, in combination with the East Indian Rosewood sides and back, produces that characteristic Taylor Sparkle. Where it gets really interesting is the body shape; the Grand Pacific body shape is best described as a Dreadnought with a rounded shoulder. This, in combination with the chosen types of wood, ensures that the basses in particular flow nicely into each other into a nice, balanced "package". The basses are therefore not as deep as you initially expect; the focus is more on the low-mid range for a more vintage-inspired experience. Fortunately, thanks to the innovative V-Class bracing, you don't compromise on sustain. The 417e-R is further completed with chic white binding, Finial Inlays, a single-ring Agoya Rosette and of course that classy, gloss-finished Sunburst top. Includes deluxe Taylor Hardshell Case.
