Taylor was founded back in 1974, in El Cajon, California, USA, by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug, who still run the company today. They employ more than 700 people, between their two factories in El Canjon, California and Tecate, Mexico, where the lower priced guitars are made.
Although Taylor is best known for its acoustic guitars, it also has a small range of electric guitars. Taylor's guitars cater mainly for the middle to higher end of the guitar market.
