Paul’s New Taylor Guitar

One of my favorite videos from 2017!!!

Forty years ago I walked into a dusty woodshop in Lemon Grove, California where Bob Taylor hired me the day I graduated from high school. The next two years I got to watch one of the greatest innovators of all time transform the musical instrument industry. That experience molded me and change me forever and made me a fearless innovator. Just like Bob I stopped caring about what other people thought about me and pursued excellence and innovation at every turn. How could I be so lucky to witness this at such a young age?

Six weeks ago I received a text message from Bob asking if I could travel with him around the world and document the Taylor Guitars World Forestry Tour. What? Why me? Could this really be happening?

Two days ago Bob presented me with the most beautiful guitar I’ve ever seen in my life…custom made to his specifications. I was totally undeserving, humbled and in tears. It is one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received!

Three times in a lifetime!

Paul’s New Taylor Guitar

Once in a lifetime…but for me it was three times.
