Bob Taylor founded Taylor Guitars in 1974. Today he’s trying to change the world by raising awareness of sustainable wood harvesting.
We are guitar geeks. We drool over expensive guitars non-stop. But until now most of us haven’t been exposed to this information.
Bob’s stories are full of wisdom and new perspectives.

Hey Tony, it’s Scott Vanlue. Just watched your interview with Bob Taylor. Kick ass!! I love Taylor Guitars and Seagull Guitars, just because of that. Sustainability! Robert Godin does the same thing. I’ll keep in touch, love you bro! Peace Always
Great interview & great topic. Makes me want to buy a Taylor just to support his efforts!
BTW Tony, in your little aside about this interview with Bob Taylor… that’s a beautiful MARTIN you’re holding 😉
Really enjoyed your conversation with mr. Bob Taylor! My name is Bob harmonica Hannon oh, yes I do play! Over 50 years now … I have a whole Warehouse of tongue and groove Maple that was once a basketball floor! If you are interested in all of this tongue and groove maple we might be able to work to each other! Once again really enjoyed your conversation about saving wood! My phone number is 352-303-1015 and I’m harmonicabob please, would love to chat! May God bless each and everyone of you mightily!
I love the woods of musical instruments, especially the master grade koa, a pearl from God, in woods per say. I would love to work with Bob and the Taylor team , regenerating our trees and tone woods for the future. I consider myself a connoisseur of woods. I love wood, especially exotic woods of of other continents. I knew that they have been trying to regenerate the koa for years. But the climate even between the islands is an issue to regrowing it. I love my KOA! My hat off to Mr. Bob, I met him at the 50th anniversary celebration of Willcutt Guitars in Lexington , KY. Great work Mr . Bob.!!
I love the Taylor K24 and the 914 models. But the new V bracing in your guitars maintaining the tonal quality of the wood resonating and sustaining that sound is incredible. I was able to watch the presentation of the V brace system at Willcutt’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Amazing job, think we picked up about 10 or 12 distinguishable notes on the one top. Incredible. Beautiful work!
I am not sure Bob will be thrilled with your comments about Taylor with a Martin on your lap.
I loved hearing about tree conservation, I have trees on my property that were planted during the timeof the Perrine Land Grant in Florida.
Thank you. The Lorax comes to mind.
