The tours at Taylor Guitars is an excellent one. It is quite an eye opener to see how they manufacture guitars. I have gone several times because it is very interesting.

Quality guitars from a top notch home grown company. These folks are so invested in the community and our future that they have a guitar building program in one of the local high schools.

The staff at Taylor Guitar are knowledgeable & passionate about their guitars. While I knew a little about Taylor prior to this visit, I now know much more & was greatly impressed by the production & passion shown throughout the buildings. Thank you Taylor Guitars!
