Ein Traum !
Michael B.M., 25.05.2020
Bei Thomann im Laden spielte ich mal diverse Taylor Gitarren "blind" an und war sofort von der 717 geflasht. Sie klang und klingt super harmonisch, warm, kräftig und ausgewogen. Schöne Bässe, aber nicht so heftig wie "Martin". Wunderschöne Höhen, aber nicht so crisp wie von einer Mahagonie Dreadnought. Ideal für Folk, Country, Singer/Songwriter Picking ohne aber so dreckig bluesig zu klingen.
Und auch fürs Strumming toll. Hierbei hat man das Gefühl jeden einzelnen Ton heraus zu hören. Also weniger offen, wie zum Beispiel bei meiner Mahagonie Lakewood Dreadnought. Die 717 ér Ist halt ?ne Palisander und soll als klangliche Ergänzung gespielt werden.
Die Optik ist der Hammer. Die Decke im Honeyburst Finish sieht richtig edel und gleichzeitig natürlich aus. Nicht zu vergleichen mit Vintage Sunburst Hochglanz Klampfen. Wunderschön und der Rest auch.
Das einzige "kleine" Manko sind die Flügel der Chrommechaniken, die ich sofort durch Ebenholz Flügel von Schaller ausgewechselt habe. Ist aber Geschmackssache.
Die Saitenlage werde ich noch etwas flacher einstellen. Die 13 ér Elixier Saiten passen sehr gut und der Koffer ist dazu ist das Sahnenäubchen. Meine Vergleiche waren die Dread?s von Martin (18 und 28), Lakewood (32) und die U.S. Guilds, aber die 717 ist anders.
Was soll ich sagen ... ein Traum.
