Featured Product

Introducing the Grand Pacific Dreadnought

Powered by V-Class bracing, the Grand Pacific is a versatile round-shoulder dreadnought that brings a whole new sonic personality to the dreadnought category and the Taylor line. With its warm, seasoned sound and clear low-end power, it’s a Taylor like you’ve never heard before. 

Our popular Grand Auditorium body style has come to define what people know as the modern “Taylor sound”— clear and vibrant, with well-defined notes. Thanks to the tone-shaping control of V-Class bracing, the Grand Pacific expands our tonal palette with an entirely new flavor of Taylor tone, featuring broad, overlapping notes that blend smoothly together to create a warm, seasoned sound.
