Taylor Guitar: A Brief History

Founded in 1974 by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug, Taylor Guitars has become a world-renowned premium guitar builder whose reputation for infusing innovative manufacturing processes alongside time-honoured luthier traditions. From their pioneering employment of high-tech machinery, visionary guitar designs, and revolutionary electronics systems, Taylor have bonded the old and the new together in ways that no other has. With good reason, Taylor guitars are considered to be amongst the finest that musicians can buy.

What makes a Taylor Acoustic Guitar?

Taylor acoustic guitar series are pitched at price points to make them affordable for everyone, whilst preserving the high-quality of craftsmanship and finishing that we have come to expect from Taylor. Not only that but they run through a plethora of nuanced specifications that closely match the needs of today’s guitarists and performers. From the 100 series through to the Limited Editions and Presentation models, you can rest assured that Taylor have gone to the ends of the earth and back to refine each and everyone one to make it the best guitar for that price.

When it comes to a Taylor acoustic guitar there is far more to be considered than whether you elect for an acoustic or an electro-acoustic. There are several sizes and body shapes for you to choose from running the gamut for compact (Baby) to generously proportioned (Grand Orchestra). Each size offers considerations tailored to the fingerpicker, the flat-picker, hybrid pickers, soloists, ensemble performers, those who want a guitar that’s easily transportable, those who want something that will shine in the studio, and those who need something glorious to perform with on a grand stage.

Tonewoods are of the utmost importance. It is not simply about presenting a visually delightful work of art for Taylor, the guitar’s timbre needs to be unlike any other. From the Academy Series that is ideal for beginners to 900 Series models equipped with Taylor’s proprietary V-Class bracing system, every Taylor sings with a richness to be shared with the world. From their staple Rosewood/Sitka Spruce partnerships to Hawaiian Koa and Tasmanian Blackwood, only the best will do for Taylor acoustic guitars. Their unique Expression System electronics ensures that the dynamic range and unique timbre of every Taylor electro acoustic guitar is translated with the utmost fidelity for times when amplification is necessary.
