When Bob Taylor started working at the Guitar building company known as American Dream in 1972 he was just an Employee but then when Sam Radding decided to sell the business in 1974 Bob and two other employees jumped at the chance of buying the company. When looking to change the name of the brand they wanted something small enough to fit onto the headstock and seen as though Bob Taylor was the main builder (and his name was short enough) they decided to re-brand the company as Taylor. Fast forward 40 something years and Taylor has become one of the biggest names in acoustic guitars.
The 600 series aims to change the perception of Maple woods clear and bright tone by giving it a specially designed bracing that gives the guitar a warm but punchy tone. With great features such as striped ebony pickguards and a choice of body shapes from Grand Orchestra and Grand Auditorium amongst other great shapes this series sure stands out from the crowd. Another great thing about Taylor's special use of Maple is that it is great for the environment. With the use of exotic woods contributing to deforestation Taylors, alternate take on Maple which is a sustainable wood may tempt other manufacturers to rethink that maple is only good for brighter tones.
