Built with solid ovangkol back & sides and a black, solid spruce top, the Grand Pacific AD17 Black Top asserts itself with a bold throwback aesthetic that complements its vintage-inspired tone. Ovangkol brings warmth and pleasing midrange focus, which, in concert with Taylor’s V-Class bracing architecture, delivers a stunning tonal blend of power, sustain and musicality. Chamfered body edges and the trademark comfort of the Taylor neck make this Grand Pacific dreadnought a dream to play, offering guitarists of all styles a versatile solid-wood option at a more accessible price. Simple appointments highlight this model’s musical focus, featuring a black top treatment with a black pickguard, single-ring rosette, 4mm dot fretboard inlays, and an ultra-thin matte finish.
