This summer, we’re excited to share a range of new Grand Concert guitars equipped with V-Class bracing. These compact, player-friendly guitars are already famous for their inviting feel and articulate sound, and our new bracing design helps them produce even more volume and sustain. With V-Class bracing under the hood, a Grand Concert guitar can sound as big as you need it to, whether you’re recording at home or playing in front of a band on stage. Taylor guitar guru Rich Casciato stops in to demo one of the new Grand Concert guitars and talks about how a change to bracing radically enhances the sound of these instruments.

The Ebony Project has continued moving forward with research and replanting initiatives, and Chris “Boosti” Sorensen has been there through it all to document the process as we work toward a more sustainable future for the precious resources that make our guitars great. On the heels of a successful spring planting, during which we planted 1,500 ebony trees and 1,500 fruit or medicine trees in the Cameroonian forest, Chris joins us in the podcast studio to recount some of his adventures in Cameroon and talk about the power of the Ebony Project.
