Meet the Grand Pacific Dreadnought
Taylor’s versatile new round-shoulder dreadnought guitar 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.
Until now, Taylor has been known for a modern take on acoustic tone—a vibrant sound with precise and well-defined individual notes. But we like other acoustic flavors too. Drawing inspiration from traditional acoustic music, master guitar designer Andy Powers leveraged the tone-shaping control of our award-winning V-Class bracing to design the Grand Pacific acoustic guitar. Broad, overlapping notes blend into a unified harmony to create a warm and inviting sound. You’ll be inspired in a whole new way.
A Dreadnought for a New Era
Clear Low-end Power
Between V-Class bracing and the subtle contours of the Grand Pacific body, Andy eliminated the problematic low-end muddiness often associated with dreadnought-style guitars. The Grand Pacific produces clear low-end power, which means the bass frequencies are more musical.
One of the sonic problems with many traditional X-braced dreadnoughts is that they 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 frequency spectrum.
Greater Musical Versatility
The Grand Pacific 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 other types of players will love. Its all-around utility makes it a fantastic workhorse guitar.
