Andy Powers on V-Class Bracing
 
Taylor Guitars designer Andy Powers discusses the company’s new top bracing system.
January 24, 2018

 

Taylor Guitars is introducing a completely new way of bracing a guitar’s top with its V-Class bracing system. Breaking away from the traditional X-bracing used by the majority of steel-string flattops, V-Class bracing allows for more independent control of the top’s stiffness and flexibility, resulting in increased volume and sustain, while also balancing the overall tone.

In this exclusive video, Taylor designer and luthier Andy Powers discusses some of the ideas behind V-Class bracing and demonstrates the sound using a Builder’s Edition K14ce guitar.

For a demo of the Builder’s Edition K14ce by Peghead Nation co-founder Teja Gerken, please click HERE.
