    Taylor Grand Pacific - The Music Zoo

    New For 2019 Round Shoulder Dreadnought Featuring V-Class Bracing

    The 2019 NAMM Show was a ton of fun, but even the most dedicated gear heads will be worn out by the constant white noise of every guitar, drum and amp in the entire venue sounding at once. As we made our way to the Taylor Guitars booth, we found some peace and quiet tucked away in the back dealer-only meeting area where we were able to finally get our hands on the new Grand Pacific models. With the quietness of the room washing over us, we took turns putting this impressive new model through its paces, listening only to the joyful sound of the instrument that Andy Powers has developed. This new round-shoulder dreadnought is familiar, yet unique. It takes queues from wartime guitars while remaining quintessentially Taylor in its modernity. It is a welcome, fresh addition to their lineup and in our opinion the first unique take on the classic shape in decades.
