I have had several Taylors. They were all terrific guitars. When I went through the great guitar purge of 2015, they were the first to go. It's not that I valued them less, or that it was easier to let them go. They were the most marketable.

I've enjoyed several GC sized Taylors but they all got kicked out of the nest 4 or 5 years ago when 12 frets changed my ear for how I like a guitar to sound.

I did manage to get Gased by my recent Taylor 322 which is a grand concert sized 12 fret short scale with a cutaway. A set of specs that are bafflingly hard to find. The guitar is ridiculously easy to play- literally the first time I picked up one it was as if I'd been playing it for years. Set up is probably the strongest point to me of Taylors as I'd cut my teeth on their neck profile and string spacing since my first one over 20 years ago.

I had to abandon my favorite Elixar Phos-Bronze strings and go with the same Earnie Ball Alum Bronze that I now have on my OOV hogtop. The blackwood top, hog body and shorter scale needed brightening up.

It's a damn handsome looking guitar also, another one of Taylor's strengths with a sunburst satin finish that I like much better than Larrivee's as it's slightly glossier. I'll likely hang onto it until the day comes when I come across an Larrivee OOV short scale, but not holding my breath.

Did you know Mr. Larrivee and Mr. Taylor are friends?


I had the good fortune of a tour of the Oxnard facility on a Saturday by none other than Jean himself. While he was showing off the CNC machine that they were using at the time to cut necks, Jean said something like "Bob Taylor showed me how to set this up."
