Taylor Guitars were conceived in 1974, with founders Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug seeking to elevate the art of acoustic guitar design while maintaing traditional approaches to guitar craftsmanship. With nearly all manufacturing taking place in El Cajon, California, Taylor have established solid quality control procedures to ensure intricate attention to detail, solid intonation and a stunning level of performance.
Always leading new developments, Taylor Guitars are committed to responsible sourcing and run initiatives to help suppliers grow. As part of the 'Ebony Project', Taylor help preserve and regulate the harvesting of endangered trees like Ebony. Taylor is working for the long-term survival and preservation of threatened ebony forests in Cameroon and in 2014, Taylor Guitars were awared with an Award for Coporate Excellence by the US State Department for its responsible practices.
Some of the most popular Taylor Guitars include the GS-Mini. This nimble, lightweight travel-sized guitar is the ultimate travelling companion and one of the most cost-effective entries into the Taylor Guitar lineup. Available in both Acoustic (GS Mini) and Electro Acoustic (GS-Mini E) versions, this elegant instrument is perfect for beginners, or just as a take-anywhere guitar for seasoned veterans.

One of Taylor's most revolutionary technological enhancements is the introduction of V-Class Bracing in 2016. This acoustic bracing system serves as a powerful sonic engine exclusively for premium Taylor Guitars, and represents a significant improvement on volume, projection and sustain, especially compared to traditional X-Bracing.
By providing a radical approach to the structure of an Acoustic Guitar, Taylor have set a new benchmark for live performance and studio recording. V-Class guitars are proven to be louder, sustain for longer, and even provide more accurate intonation.
If you really want to hear the difference in your next Acoustic Guitar purchase, a Taylor Guitar with the revolutionary V-Class bracing upgrade will blow you away!
As well as some of the most beloved Acoustic Guitar designs, Taylor have also delved into hybrid and hollowbody guitars. By adapting some of the proprietary pickup designs from their Electro Acoustic Models, these hybrid Guitars feature a compact body and versatile range of amplified flavours.
The T5 and T5z are the first of their kind - a true hybrid electric-acoustic instrument that can produce a dynamic range of tones, with a beautiful acoustic voice that can be crunched and skewed via a 5-way tone selector switch and on-board EQ controls.
Professional performers, touring musicians and studio session musicians all swear by the Taylor Brand name for their warm, rich natural tones, expressive playability and aesthetic appeal.
In 2012, Taylor Guitars infamously licensed a range of Taylor Swift guitars and accessories to pay homeage to a genuine Pop Superstar. A famous Taylor endorsee, Taylor Swift is an iconic name to represent the brand, to encourage young new players to pick up an Acoustic Guitar and start playing.
Other notable players include Prince, Dave Matthews, George Strait and Jason Mraz.
