Taylor's V-Class bracing is a great innovation that is very effective at achieving their desired result:

"V-Class Bracing is the internal framework that helps shape the sound of an acoustic guitar. V-Class bracing is a groundbreaking new Taylor design — a new sonic “engine”— that transforms the way an acoustic guitar top vibrates to dramatically improve the sound. Developed by master guitar designer Andy Powers, it marks a bold departure from traditional X-bracing, producing notes that are louder, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other. Discover the history and inspiration that brought us to this turning point in guitar design."

The bracing and wood selection combine in this guitar to product a bright but full sound with balance.  The guitar is lighter than other Taylors, another great side effect of the bracing pattern.

Equipped with the Taylor factory Expression system, the newer version with the 9volt battery.

The guitar is in excellent condition.  Frets show very little wear.  The neck angle and feel are perfect.  The guitar set up for us with no issues, and there is room in the saddle and the truss rod for future adjustment.  There are no repairs or changes to the guitar.

The original hardshell case is included.
