TNAG Meets Taylor Guitars' Andy Powers

Taylor Guitars V Class

Earlier this year, Taylor Guitars announced their new V-Class bracing system. This new bracing approach was seen as a game-changer in the production guitar world, and we were able to catch up with its designer, Taylor luthier Andy Powers, to find out more about V-Class:

V Class bracing has now made its way into Taylor's current product line, and we are delighted to have two V Class models in stock now:
