Taylor’s American Dream series embodies all the creative spirit, innovation, and ingenuity that has allowed Taylor Guitars to redefine the definition of the acoustic guitar. At the very core of Taylor's philosophy, is an inner drive to push the boundaries and explore the endless possibilities of sound, body shapes, and playability. Taylor's American Dream Series continues to embody these principles of innovation to create U.S.-made, solid-wood instruments that deliver premium musical performance at an affordable price.

Body Shape
The Grand Pacific brings a new flavor of sound to the Taylor line: warm and seasoned, with broad, round overlapping notes that blend into each other to create a unified harmony. It’s a departure from the focused, precise, clear, and vibrant sound of Taylor's Grand Auditorium shape, which helped define what players have come to recognize as “the Taylor Sound.” An important attribute of the Grand Pacific shape is the elimination of problematic low-end woofiness and muddiness (perceived as a "puff of air") often associated with dreadnought-style guitars. This has been accomplished while retaining the usable, musical, warm power of bass response. Because of this, the Grand Pacific is especially microphone-friendly and suits flat-pickers, strummers and fingerstyle players alike.

Tonewood Pairing
Spruce is one of the most prevalent guitar top woods of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions, which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Tonally, Walnut is known for its bright tone, tight low-end, and dynamic sustain. Its pleasing depth and responsive bass characteristics produce a broad balanced tone with a lot of punch. Pairing spruce with the walnut gives you a tone that is crisp and articulate, yet balanced and responsive to a wide variety of playing techniques and styles.

V-Class Bracing
Taylor's V-Class is essentially a "sonic engine" that optimizes the response of an acoustic guitar in three key ways: by boosting volume, sustain, and by largely resolving the intonation (in-tune-ness) issues that have long plagued acoustic guitars. V-Class bracing creates purer, more orderly notes that don't cancel each other out or sound "off." They have clearer, more consistent response, and the whole fretboard is brought into greater sonic alignment for a more musical playing/listening experience. Guitars with V-Class bracing are easier to tune; the pitch sounds purer and more solid; and electronic tuners can more easily locate notes for quick, precise tuning.
