Instrument
スポンサーリンク

Taylor Guitars is an American guitar manufacturer based in El Cajon, California. Despite its relatively short history, Taylor is now known as one of the three biggest guitar brands alongside Martin and Gibson. It is very popular because it is a guitar made from a musician’s point of view, such as a design with excellent playability and a sound output close to the raw sound. In January 2014, we received the Corporate Excellence Award from the US State Department.

history

Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974 by Bob Taylor and Cart Listag. 1994 Announced “GA”, the first original design. “NT neck joint” has been adopted for all models since 2001. In 2003, we developed the “Expression System” and it became popular as a model that can produce unds that do not spoil the atmosphere of “live sound”. In 2006, “GS” was announced. In 2014, developed “Expression System 2” centered on David Hosler. In 2016, the Academy series was sold as an entry model. In 2018, V-Class bracing model is on sale.

Features of Taylor Guitars

The guitar is set up to have a low string height, reducing stress on the performance. The neck of the guitar has a detachable design that fixes the body and neck with three bolts, unlike the set neck that glues the neck and body like a general acoustic guitar. A wooden spacer called a shim is sandwiched between the body and the neck. The paint on the guitar is a technique that cures the paint immediately with ultraviolet rays. Taylor’s patented “NY Neck” is a bolt-on joint. It is fixed with two screws from the inside of the body. Jigs and ingenuity that can be manufactured so that errors do not occur at manufacturers that are said to have little “individual difference” have been made into manuals.
