With its unique round-shoulder dreadnought silhouette, revolutionary V-Class bracing, and dramatically different tonal personality, the 327e Grand Pacific blazes new ground for Taylor. Featuring Tasmanian blackwood back and sides and a tropical mahogany top, this alluring acoustic-electric guitar delivers a seductively bold and versatile tonal profile that is perfectly amplified by the onboard ES2 electronics. Boasting the understated elegance of Taylor’s 3 Series, the 327e Grand Pacific is graced by a curvaceous pickguard, 3-ring rosette, and beautiful Italian acrylic Gemstone fingerboard inlays. Its tropical mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard play flawlessly. The 327e Grand Pacific is an amazing guitar and an incredible value.
With the Grand Pacific, Taylor master luthier Andy Powers has fulfilled the potential of V-Class bracing as a robust tone-shaping platform. The Grand Pacific demonstrates proof-of-concept that V-Class architecture is an ideal cornerstone for guitars with a versatile range of musical personalities that will appeal to a broad swath of players from all genres.
The Grand Pacific’s overall sound is warm and seasoned, producing notes that overlap more to create a smooth, blended sound. Its wider waist delivers more low-frequency power; the problematic low-end woodiness often associated with dreadnoughts is eliminated by the V-Class bracing.
With Taylor’s V-Class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-Class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and, hence, sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It’s the best of both worlds.
