Taylor 317e V-Class Grand Pacific
Taylor Grand Pacific är en helt nydesignad round-shoulder dreadnought med V-Class bracing vilket ger en ljudpalett du aldrig tidigare hört i denna kategori. Taylor har alltid varit förknippat med ett ”modernt” väldefinierat sound med glittrande övertoner. Den nya designen innebär en varmare ton där basfrekvenserna är mer kontrollerade samtidigt som de höga tonerna blir ännu mer distinkta och klara.

Introducing the Taylor Grand Pacific Powered by Taylor’saward-winning V-Class™bracing, the Grand Pacific is a new round-shoulder dreadnought that introduces a whole new sonic personality to the dreadnought category and the Taylor line.It’s a Taylor like you’ve never heard before. A Warm, Seasoned SoundCompared to the “modern” acoustic sound Taylor has becomeknown for—vibrant and articulate,with clearly defined notes—the Grand Pacific’s voice features broad, overlapping notes that blend smoothly together to create a warm, seasoned sound.
If you’re already a fan of Taylor, the Grand Pacific revealsa uniquely inspiringflavor to explore. If the Taylor sound hasn’t been your jamin the past, the Grand Pacific might change your mind. It’s definitely a guitar worth a test-drive. V-Class Bracing:ATone-Shaping PlatformIn 2018, Taylor introduced its patented V-Class bracing, a groundbreaking internal bracing systemdesigned by master guitar designer Andy Powers. V-Class broughtan evolution beyond X-bracing(which Powers felt had been pushed to its limits as a voicing framework), enablingTaylor to make fundamental improvementsto the sound of an acoustic guitar—namely the ability to produce stronger projection, longer sustain, and more accurate intonationby putting the guitar top more in tune with the strings. More importantly, the flexible V-Classframeworkgave Taylora powerfulnew platform for shaping an acoustic guitar’s tonal character in dramatic new ways.
This fueled the creation of the Grand Pacific.Evolving aTraditional SoundAndy Powers was inspired to create the Grand Pacific by the bluegrass and other acoustic roots music records he grew up listening to with his dad. Though a lot of that music was created with dreadnought-style guitars, Andy wasn’t interested in simply building another version of an existing dreadnought. Between the subtly roundedcontours of theGrand Pacific’s body andthe V-Classbracing under the hood, he was able to craft an instrument that could make the kinds of acoustic sounds he heard on those records, while also taming some of theproblematic attributes often associatedwith dreadnought-style guitars. (These sonic issues were typically fixed during the recording/mixing process.) Some of the notable sonic improvementsyou’ll hear in the Grand Pacific include:Clear Low-end Power Andy eliminatedthe low-end woofiness/muddiness often associated with dreadnought-styleguitars.The Grand Pacific produces warmlow-end powerbut with more clarity, which means the bass frequencies are more musicaland less problematic for recording and other applications.
Tonal Consistencyfrom Low to HighSometraditional X-braced dreadnoughts create their low-end power at the expense of other frequencies. With the Grand Pacific, you’ll hear smooth, warm, powerful notes consistently across the entire frequency spectrum.Greater Versatilityand All-Around UtilityThe Grand Pacific also isn’t musically confined the way a dreadnought can be. It blends the power of a bluegrass guitar with the clarity and playing comfort that singer-songwriters and even fingerstyle players will enjoy. Its all-around utility makes it a fantastic workhorse guitar.
