Default Taylor 327 (no electronics) SOLD

I recently purchased this amazing Taylor Grand Pacific, but then my equally amazing Taylor 524 became available (long story). In the absence of my 524, the 327 would definitely be a keeper. Long story short, I don't need both. No electronics which was the appeal for me. Comes with original Taylor floral hardshell case. ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES

With its unique round-shoulder dreadnought silhouette, revolutionary V-Class bracing, and dramatically different tonal personality, the 327 Grand Pacific blazes new ground for Taylor. Featuring Tasmanian blackwood back and sides and a tropical mahogany top, this alluring acoustic guitar delivers a seductively bold and versatile tonal profile. Boasting the understated elegance of Taylorís 3 Series, the 327 Grand Pacific is graced by a curvaceous pickguard, 3-ring rosette, and beautiful Italian acrylic Gemstone fingerboard inlays. Its tropical mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard play flawlessly. The 327 Grand Pacific is an amazing guitar and an incredible value.

Although V-Class bracing gave Andy more ways to control a guitarís tonal character, Andy also knew a new body shape would be required, something with roughly the dimensions of a dreadnought. With V-Class, he could eliminate the undesirable sonic characteristics generally ascribed to dreadnoughts. All this led to the round-shoulder dreadnought design Taylor calls the Grand Pacific. The Grand Pacificís overall sound is warm and seasoned, producing notes that overlap more to create a smooth, blended sound. Its wider waist delivers more low-frequency power; the problematic low-end woodiness often associated with dreadnoughts is eliminated by the V-Class bracing.

During conception, Taylor chose to outfit the 327 with a tropical mahogany top. This tonewood is prized for its mellow midrange and superb resonance with tons of harmonic complexity. Tasmanian blackwood is used for the back and sides of the Grand Pacific. This bold tonewood has a sonic profile reminiscent of koa and mahogany. This sound adds extra clarity to the treble notes without interfering with robust bass response. This creative tonewood pairing yields a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation thatís perfect for delicate fingerpicking, aggressive flatpicked strumming, and everything in between.
