Interview with Bob Taylor

For a bit of great holiday entertainment here’s a recent interview with Bob Taylor by Tony Polecastro of Acoustic Letter. The interview is in three parts.

Much of the discussion is about sustainability and what Taylor Guitars are doing to secure their wood supply for the future. Basically Bob Taylor is expanding into the tree-growing business.

Like Martin Guitars, Taylors are increasing the focus on home-grown North American hardwoods (The USA has the largest hardwood resource outside of the tropics). The discussion about Maple is particularly interesting.  Unfortunately there’s no mention of farm-grown Tasmanian blackwood.

Enjoy!
