NGD - Taylor Grand Pacific 317e


Recommended Posts

I found this 2019 gem in my local music store. The 2020 is $100 more, and I got a sale price for Labor Day weekend. I traded in my Taylor GS Mini to help reduce the cost. I get Andy Powers design, and V-bracing. The GS Mini was a good little guitar, but the Grand Pacific is a much richer experience. Then of course there is the case, and what a case it is.

Nice find Randy. Taylor makes a great quality guitar. I have a Taylor 614CE which has its own tone and sound compared with my Martin HD-35. Much more high ends with spank and jangle. The Taylor case looks like yours on the inside, my outside is plain black where yours has a pattern. What I love about the Taylor case is that it has a much tighter fit. My Humidity packs in the Taylor case have twice the life compared to other acoustic hard cases.

Congrats and hope you enjoy.

@Popeye I agree the Grand Pacific is very snug in the case. It is rock solid and the floral pattern is rich with gold hardware. 

Unfortunately, the Grand Pacific will not see the case anytime soon. I get to play with it all Labor Day weekend, and I am off next week. If you hear a guitar ringing, it just might be me.

Great catch Randy, you will really enjoy this guitar. One of the guys that I play with has the same model "Grand Pacific 517", I think.  He uses Martin strings and oh boy what a beautiful sounding guitar. Enjoy!!

Taylor’s are great guitars. I have a nylon string model with a slightly wider neck than a typical acoustic. Very sweet sounding. I have played several Grand Pacifics at stores and loved every one of them. You will have hours of musical pleasure with this beauty. Excellent find!

Wow! That sure is a great looking guitar! Taylor's are amazing instruments! I had a GS Mini and it served me very well!

That case is unlike any I've seen!  

Congrats!!

The Taylor Grand Pacific is definitely a lot of guitar. The neck is the smoothest I played so far. The sound is rich. I am going to put new strings on soon, and give it the complete treatment before winter comes. The case is a work of art. I have seen too many expensive guitars come with a gig bag so the Taylor case is a real treat.
