Taylor’s Definitive Guide to Buying an Acoustic Guitar
 
Peghead Nation’s Teja Gerken highlights Taylor’s new guitar-buying resource with helpful examples and clips from recent guitar demonstrations.
October 3, 2016

 

For many guitarists, buying a new guitar can be as much fun as playing the instrument. But sometimes finding a guitar that sounds and feels just right can be a challenge. With more manufacturers, models, and types of guitars than ever, how do you make sure that the guitar you buy will keep you playing happily for years to come?

Taylor Guitars’ new Definitive Guide to Buying an Acoustic Guitar is an excellent resource filled with advice and information about finding your perfect guitar. This 110-page PDF provides answers to just about any question you might have about the instrument, and it gives you helpful strategies for finding an ideal match.

In this video, Peghead Nation co-founder Teja Gerken addresses several of the topics covered in the guide, including choosing the right size guitar, what kind of instrument is best-suited to your playing style, how different woods contribute to the sound of the guitar, and much more. The video concludes with Teja and Peghead Nation’s Scott Nygaard playing eight Taylor guitars with different body styles and woods as well as a demonstration of the Taylor ES2 pickup system.
