Builder’s Edition 517 Demo by Brian Truesby

Sponsored by Taylor Guitars:

Brian Truesby knows his way around an acoustic guitar, with a dynamic fingerstyle approach beautifully suited to the seasoned sounds of the Taylor Builder’s Edition 517. Back and sides of solid mahogany deliver a warm, woody response characterized by a punchy midrange and clear low-end power. A torrefied Sitka spruce top, specially roasted to add some aged-in sweetness, brings its trademark sparkle and top-end clarity, adding up to a versatile guitar whose tone hearkens back to vintage acoustic recordings.

This Builder’s Edition model features V-Class bracing under the hood to add volume and sustain, while a compound carve neck offers unmatched playing comfort with a profile that compensates for your fretting hand all the way down the neck. Polished off with rounded body and fretboard edges, a Silent Satin finish to reduce incidental noise, and an optional Wild Honey Burst finish, the Builder’s Edition 517 represents a dramatic step into new territory for Taylor Guitars.

The Builder’s Edition collection from Taylor Guitars represent the finest in acoustic guitar craftsmanship, tone and playability, thanks to premium solid tonewoods, V-Class bracing and a host of player-friendly comfort features.
