What We Want To Know
Do all Taylors now use this new bracing system? No. The V-Class bracing was premiered on a quartet of high-end Grand Auditorium (GA) models at the start of 2018. New V-Class models have been added – again GAs only – from the 800 series down to the start-up 300 series.
So you can buy the 714ce in both standard and V-Class bracing? Yes and no. The specific V-Class models have replaced the previous standard-braced versions in the Taylor line-up but, obviously, there are plenty of stores with the previous standard-braced models in stock.
Will V-Class change our world? Probably not, but Taylor clearly believes it’s a better guitar with enhanced dynamic range, projection and improved intonation. A better tool? We’re not disagreeing.
