With the Grand Pacific, Taylor master luthier Andy Powers has fulfilled the potential of V-class bracing as a robust tone-shaping platform. The Grand Pacific demonstrates proof of concept that V-class architecture is an ideal cornerstone for guitars with a versatile range of musical personalities that will appeal to a broad swath of players cross-genre. Inspired by the diverse acoustic guitar sounds on the records he heard while growing up in Southern California, Andy set out to diversify Taylor’s tonal palette by designing a guitar with a different sound profile.

Although V-class bracing gave Andy more ways to control a guitar’s tonal character, Andy also knew a new body shape would be required, something with roughly the dimensions of a dreadnought. With V-class, he could eliminate the undesirable sonic characteristics generally ascribed to dreadnoughts. All this led to the round-shoulder dreadnought design Taylor calls the Grand Pacific. The Grand Pacific’s overall sound is warm and seasoned, producing notes that overlap more to create a smooth, blended sound. Its wider waist delivers more low-frequency power, the problematic low-end woodiness often associated with dreadnoughts being eliminated by the V-class bracing.
