Overview

Grand Pacific acoustic with ES2 electronics for warm tone anywhere.

The Taylor 417e Grand Pacific acoustic-electric represents a bridge between everyday musical utility and top-tier craftsmanship with a refined rustic vibe that complements the tonal warmth and lush overtone response of the rosewood/spruce wood pairing. Supercharged by the V-Class bracing, the 417e delivers bold and dynamic tone. The Grand Pacific body shape provides a warm and seasoned sound with broad, round overlapping notes that blend into each other to create a unified harmony. It’s a departure from the focused, precise, clear and vibrant sound of Taylor's Grand Auditorium shape, which helped define what players have come to recognize as "the Taylor Sound." An important attribute of the Grand Pacific shape is the elimination of problematic low-end woofiness and muddiness (perceived as a "puff of air") often associated with dreadnought-style guitars.

The 417e Grand Pacific is also equipped with Expression System 2 electronics, a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The position of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured when plugged-in. Combined with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. Whether you plug into a PA, your favorite acoustic amplifier or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. If you want to adjust your sound, you can color it with easy-to-use volume, and active bass and treble controls. The Taylor Expression System 2 is powered by a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment.
