On our recent trip to El Cajon, CA, we had the great opportunity to tour the Taylor Guitars factory and chat with co-founder Bob Taylor and master builder Andy Powers. Taylor HQ is an impressive facility, and a reflection of why Taylor is a leader and innovator in today’s acoustic guitar market. See for yourself in our exclusive photo tour here.
Taylor Guitars master builder Andy Powers is not only a revolutionary guitar designer, but a skilled player as well. Below, he demonstrate the unique sounds and textures six new 800 Series models are capable of. According to Taylor, "While all share fundamental tonal qualities, each body style features unique design nuances that accentuate the guitar's sonic strengths."
