Ok. This one is gorgeous.
Look at it. The Silent Satin Wild Honey Burst finish on this guitar is to die for. To us the Taylor Builder’s Edition 517 WHB sounds, well, as what a vintage Taylor may sound one day. It is a bit drier and more woody than the usual Taylor sound, yet retains the unmistakable Taylor high-mids’ sparkle. One of the more interesting features of the Builder’s Edition is the compound-carve neck profile that compensates for the change in your hand position as you move along the neck, it actually works and does improve playability. Naturally being a Builder’s Edition, this 517 WHB sports some other premium features too, like chambered body edges, contoured fretboard edges, Curve Wing bridge and more. The Taylor Builder’s Edition 517 WHB enjoys Taylor’s V-Class bracing technique which gives it more projection also when played lightly. This version comes without a pickup but if you need one be sure to check the Taylor Builder’s Edition 517e which has the onboard ES2 pickup system.
