OVERVIEW

A versatile round shoulder dreadnought with solid tonewoods construction offering great projection and tone.

The 317 Grand Pacific Dreadnought acoustic guitar is a new Taylor shape for 2019 that delivers a new Taylor sound. Taylor's 300 Series has introduced countless players to the pleasures of the all-solid-wood, USA-made acoustic experience. It is also the most approachable entry point in the Taylor line to the Grand Pacific round shoulder dreadnought. Built on the innovative V-Class bracing platform, the Grand Pacific is a fully realized example of how body shapes and tonewoods can be sculpted to create distinct and highly desirable tonal palettes. The 317 Grand Pacific is a unique entry to the dreadnought category, possessing clear low-end power, tonal consistency and sweeping versatility. The 317 Grand Pacific Dreadnought acoustic guitar ships in a luxurious hardshell case with Western floral pattern, made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Tonewood Pairing
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. As a tonewood, solid sapele back and sides complement the top with sonic characteristics that live comfortably between the dry, clear, woody sound of mahogany and the complex, overtone-rich character of rosewood. Sapele responds well to a variety of playing styles and fits nicely into an instrument mix.

V-Class Bracing
Taylor's V-Class bracing is a fundamental innovation in acoustic guitar design. It marks an important evolution beyond traditional X-bracing, introducing an entirely new platform for acoustic performance. It is essentially a "sonic engine" that optimizes the response of an acoustic guitar in three key ways: by boosting volume, sustain, and by largely resolving the intonation (in-tune-ness) issues that have long plagued acoustic guitars. V-Class bracing creates purer, more orderly notes that don't cancel each other out or sound "off". They have clearer, more consistent response, and the whole fretboard is brought into greater sonic alignment for a more musical playing/listening experience. Guitars with V-Class bracing are easier to tune; the pitch sounds purer and more solid, and electronic tuners can more easily locate notes for quick, precise tuning. Other benefits: harmonics ring more uniformly down the neck, notes are louder with more projection and sustain, and notes are more consistent, i.e., upper register notes don't get choked out or swallowed. Fewer "sour" sonic qualities exist with chords; a more agreeable relationship is created between notes as they ripen, bloom and decay.

The Taylor Difference
What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.
