Assembling an acoustic guitar of world-class caliber requires more technology than you might realize. Hand craftsmanship is still the hallmark of Taylor Guitars, which has been in business nearly 45 years. But technology now plays a more integral role in both the guitar maker’s groundbreaking designs and the pioneering manufacturing process to produce them.
Taylor Guitars builds premium acoustic guitars at its facilities in El Cajon, CA, and Tecate, Mexico. Renowned for blending innovative manufacturing techniques with an artisan’s attention to detail, Taylor pioneered the use of CNC milling, laser cutting and robotics in guitar construction. Large-payload robots assist with polyurethane spray application and buffing of the wood finishes. Compact, high-speed robots assemble guitar electronics.
