Introducing the TaylorSense Smart Battery Box and TaylorSense Mobile App

Introducing the TaylorSense Smart Battery Box and TaylorSense Mobile App

What is TaylorSense?

It’s a new guitar health monitoring system that puts the vital signs of your Taylor guitar into the palm of your hand.

TaylorSense Monitors Your Guitar’s:


TaylorSense alerts you when your guitar needs care by communicating via low-energy Bluetooth between the TaylorSense smart battery box and the free TaylorSense App on your iOS or Android mobile device. Shaped by Taylor’s extensive guitar care expertise, TaylorSense is calibrated to send you timely alerts and includes easy-to-follow videos that show you how to solve problems when they arise.

Note: The TaylorSense app is currently available in North America, Europe and the United Kingdom.

Protect against humidity extremes.

Humidity Alerts

Extended exposure to low or high humidity levels can wreak havoc on an acoustic guitar. Not only will it compromise the playability and tone, it can lead to serious damage. Dry conditions can cause the wood to crack, while wet conditions can cause glue joints to fail and the finish to lift. Your TaylorSense battery box features a digital hygrometer that monitors the humidity level of your Taylor guitar. If the levels remain too low or high for an extended stretch, you'll receive a humidity alert and a link to information on how to remedy your guitar's condition.


Steer clear of heat waves & cold spells.

Temperature Alerts

Prolonged exposure to high heat -- such as leaving your guitar in a car on a hot summer day -- can cause the glues to soften and the bridge to come loose under the string tension. A guitar's wood can also suffer damage if the guitar goes from extremely cold to hot conditions in a short period of time. TaylorSense monitors the temperature of your guitar. When that temperature becomes dangerous to your Taylor guitar, you'll receive an alert and a link to helpful advice from Taylor's service team.


Keep your battery from dying on stage.

Battery Alerts

We all want peace of mind when we plug in, especially when it comes to battery life. With TaylorSense, you'll always have a handle on your pickup system's battery capacity so it doesn't fail you when it matters most. When your battery life reaches 30%, you'll receive an alert. You'll receive one more when it hits 10%. You can also check your battery life anytime through the TaylorSense App, which means you'll always know exactly where you stand before a gig.


Know when your guitar takes a hit.

Impact Alerts

While TaylorSense can't prevent your guitar from being dropped, knocked over, or roughed up during your travels, it can let you know if it suffers a serious blow. If your guitar takes a hit, TaylorSense will notify you so you can inspect it more closely for damage. TaylorSense also records the time of the incident, which can help you identify the probable cause. That can come in handy if the incident occurs after you've checked your guitar with an airline or when the guitar is at home with kids or pets around.
