Revolutionary sound from its very core
V-Class is here. And it's everything you've been looking for. Only featured on select models from Taylor. And classed as the 'new sonic-engine', this is construction you won't look back from. It makes such a noticeable difference in both performance and projection. And as you know, bracing is imperative for preventing your instrument from collapsing under string tension. Extremely important, and with Taylor, it's meticulous. Nothing less.
A revolutionary pattern, brought to you by Andy Powers. And designed to bring out the best of your instrument's true nature. This sought-after V-Class bracing enhances, and dramatically improves the Custom Grand Concert's sonic capabilities. It also gives the Custom incredible strength and durability, with a tone like never before. Experience superior volume, sustain, and intonation. The kind you'd only expect to hear on the most professional of recordings, or maybe in your wildest dreams...
Taylor cannot express enough the kind of impact V-Class bracing brings. It's quality you need to hear for yourself. Unforgettable, unmistakable, game-changing. Plus, with V-Class bracing, notes are more in-tune with each other. Bringing you a truly immersive sound that simply can't be replicated. So, in any position up and down the fingerboard, every note is true, full, consistent. And in complete harmony with one another.
