Our acoustics love to be plugged in.

Our passion for great tone led us to develop our own pickups, including our flagship Expression System®. When you first plug in, set the tone controls flat on your guitar (on the center detent) and whatever you're plugging into. Read a full overview of the Taylor Expression System here. Learn about other Taylor acoustic pickups here.

We're obsessed with necks.

Your Taylor has the most accurately intonated, straightest neck in the guitar world, thanks to our patented neck design. That's one reason why Taylors are so easy to play and stay in tune. Your neck is also highly adjustable, which will add to the longevity of your guitar. That's probably all you need to know for now, but if you like knowing what goes on under the hood, read more about the NT Neck.
