With V-Class bracing under the hood, this ovangkol/spruce Grand Pacific channels some of rosewood's musical flavours and dials up the midrange. The combination of warmth, power and clarity makes this a well-rounded musical tool.

Topped with solid spruce, the AD17 serves up a blend of sparkle and clean low-end power, enhanced by V-Class bracing for greater volume, longer sustain, and a more in-tune sound. That seasoned, vintage-hued tone is reflected in this model's strikingly classic look, with a natural top and a deep Urban Sienna colour treatment for the ovangkol back and sides. Minimally decorated but finely crafted, the AD17 also features chamfered body edges, stained spruce edge trim, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, and a faux tortoiseshell pickguard. The 2.0 mil-thick matte body finish minimizes damping for unfettered resonance. It ships in a Taylor AeroCase.

Special Features

Chamfered Edges - Smoothed edges around the body of the guitars translate into a more comfortable feel for your picking arm.

Thin Matte Finish - At .002 inches, a thin finish optimizes the acoustic resonance. Visually, it fits the guitar's elemental aesthetic.

Simple Appointments - Dot inlays and other distilled detailing offer players both a great music tool and a great value.

Taylor AeroCase[trade] - The best of both worlds: all the protection of a hardshell case with material construction that's a fraction of the weight.
