Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug founded Taylor Guitars in 1974 and by 2017 it was a leading global builder of premium acoustic guitars with over 900 people producing hundreds of guitars per day in its state-of-the-art factory complexes in both El Cajon and in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico.

Taylor is renowned for using modern, innovative manufacturing techniques. The company was a pioneer in the use of CNC mills, lasers and other high-tech tools and proprietary machinery for acoustic guitar manufacture. Among the company’s many innovations are its patented Taylor Neck; the Expression System® 2 (ES2) pickup; and the T5 a hybrid acoustic and electric guitar.

In addition to its forward-thinking approach to guitar design and manufacturing, Taylor is dedicated to the pursuit of best practices in forest management, new models of reforestation, and using only ethically harvested tonewoods.
