To say we have a blast with the crew from Taylor Guitars at the Walnut Valley Festival would be an understatement. Swapping stories, dishing on what’s good at the chuck wagon, what musical acts to check out, and of course, helping customers find the right Taylor guitar is all part of the festival fun. This Taylor 717e Grand Pacific is one of the best flatpicking guitars they’ve made in the V-Class era. Spruce top with Rosewood back and sides this round-shoulder dread has a nice present warm end, with a high-end that cuts through when taking a solo. Check out more pics and all the specs on the Grand Pacific Builder’s Edition model over on our website.
