On October 15, 1974, two passionate guitar enthusiasts from San Diego arrived at the small guitar shop they had just purchased, little did they know that they would be embarking on a journey that would revolutionise guitar craftsmanship and music creation for decades to come. Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug, the co-founders of Taylor Guitars, faced numerous challenges over the next fifty years but persevered, transforming their shop into a renowned guitar manufacturer. 

Their dedication and vision propelled them to overcome obstacles, leading to the establishment of a world-class guitar-making legacy. In this blog, we’ll be going through the Taylor 50th Anniversary models that we have in stock here at PMT Online, discussing their specifications and the incredible attention to detail in all these Electro-Acoustic guitars, so let’s dive in…
