The 517e is a real standout in Taylor's lineup! It's got this cool combination of solid Urban Ironbark back and sides, a torrefied spruce top, and a Grand Pacific dreadnought body shape, giving it a tone profile you won't find in any other Taylor guitar. It's truly one-of-a-kind!

When you play it, you'll notice a powerful and sweet response with a perfect balance across all the tones it can produce. It's like having both muscle and sweetness in the sound, a fantastic combination!

And let me tell you, the V-Class bracing inside just takes it to another level. More power and longer sustain make the Ironbark back and sides sound even more like rosewood, and it enhances the warm, seasoned character of the Grand Pacific body.

They've also added some subtle but beautiful touches, like a green abalone rosette, faux tortoiseshell binding, and Marquise inlays in Italian acrylic. It really adds to the overall package!

Oh, and don't forget, it's equipped with ES2 electronics, so you can plug it in and let that unique tone shine through loud and clear. Plus, it comes with a hardshell case to keep it safe when you're not strumming away.
