New Taylor Guitar Models for 2019

Each year, we do our best to apply our spirit of creativity and innovation in guitar design to new concepts and fresh sounds. This year, we’re excited to introduce a new set of guitars that challenges how players think about the Taylor acoustic sound.

The Grand Pacific dreadnought headlines this year’s class of new guitars, an original body shape created by Andy Powers inspired by vintage acoustic recordings. Powered by our revolutionary V-Class bracing architecture, the Grand Pacific is a round-shoulder dreadnought that produces warm, seasoned tone in which notes blend and overlap seamlessly. The Grand Pacific launched this year with three new guitars: the rosewood/torrefied spruce Builder’s Edition 717, the mahogany/torrefied spruce Builder’s Edition 517, and the sapele/spruce 317.

We’re also excited to announce the release of V-Class bracing among our Grand Concert guitars. These small-bodied instruments are beloved for their comfort and articulate sound, and the addition of V-Class bracing brings new levels of volume and sustain, lending surprising power to these compact guitars.

After the positive response to our original compact acoustic bass, we’re bringing a new flavor to the GS Mini Bass family. This year, we’ve built a maple edition of our portable, yet punchy bass guitar, providing another tonal and aesthetic option for players seeking a new sound for their acoustic arsenal.

These new models and features embody the Taylor spirit of innovation, and we’re proud to continue that tradition of expanding the capabilities of our guitars and the people who play them.
