What's the Deal With Taylor's V-Class Bracing? Vintage Music Instruments Nashville
Earlier this year, Taylor vintage guitars Nashville unveiled its new V-Class bracing, a bold new approach to acoustic vintage guitar Nashville bracing.
Traditional X-bracing, which has dominated steel string acoustic vintage guitar Nashville building for decades, features the two largest braces arranged in an X that crosses somewhere below the soundhole. V-Class bracing, on the other hand, places the two largest braces in a V shape with the bottom near the endpin and the soundhole between the two braces. The result, according to Taylor, is more volume, longer sustain, and better intonation. Check out the video below to see Zac Brown and other Taylor artists test out this new concept.
