Congratulations to Phillip Phillips on his American Idol win. The Leesburg, Georgia native, known for his Dave Matthews-esque sound and near upright strumming, was voted the season 11 “idol” by the show’s viewers. Throughout the series Phillip played a variety of Taylor guitars, including a 714ce and 814ce, and for the show’s finale, he chose his own GS7, a guitar he told judges early on that he had saved to buy, as he performed his new single, “Home.” See the video below.                                                                                                                                                      

Congratulations, Phillip, from your friends at Taylor Guitars.
