Features We Love:
Grand Pacific Body Shape
The Grand Pacific body shape is a bold move from Taylor. It has been designed by Taylor’s Master luthier Andy Powers as an attempt to improve the Dreadnought. Andy wanted to create a great guitar that did away with certain issues associated with the dreadnought design.
Sitka Spruce Top
It is easy to see why sitka spruce is often used as a soundboard wood. It gives a wide range of tones making it great for a variety of styles. It also has a beautiful natural look and works well with the layered sapele back and sides.
Developed by Taylor’s Master Builder Andy Powers, this is an innovative new style of bracing. It tackles the issue of achieving sustain and tone without sacrificing volume. V-Class bracing allows the guitar’s top to move and vibrate in a more stable manner, resulting in more focus and response from the wood. This control means more volume and projection. The ‘V’ of the bracing travels the middle of the guitar, maintaining rigidity and lending sustain and resonance to your notes. V-Class bracing means a louder, richer sound with better intonation and response.
