My husband, adult son and I toured the factory and thoroughly enjoyed it. We all play guitar and were quite impressed with this tour. We loved seeing the special woods from all over the world and the ways they are used to make these fine instruments. The laser cutters and robotic varnishers were very interesting to watch. But even better... More

We drove down and were lucky to get Steve as our tour guide. From the very start his passion for everything to do with Taylor was inspiring. The tour... More

Their factory tour was a wonderful experience for myself and three grand kids. It was very professionally done with audio systems so you could hear the guide and even the showroom was fun while we waited for the tour to start. You can play instruments in the showroom. The tour covered two buildings from the "wood room" to the final... More

Absolutely awesome experience! The staff was knowledgable and very friendly. We enjoyed the factory tour and our guide was pretty good too. He knew what he was talking about. I was impressed by the people in the factory as well. The precision and the attention to detail that the workers use when building their guitars was impressive. They were very... More

I'm the only guitar player in the family but the entire family enjoyed it! They show you how they build guitars from start to finish. They encourage photos and the best part is the Visitor Center before and after the tour. Hang out and play everything they have! From $ to $$$$! Take your dream guitar for a spin! And... More
