Taylor 800 Series Guitars
Behind The Design with Andy Powers and Dave Hosler
Taylor guitars are driven by constant innovation. Each and every model that leaves the factory is a part of a long tradition of hard work, research, and constant scrutiny. Always improving their models, Taylor holds no design sacred. One of this year's most exciting refinements is the
completely redesigned 800 series of Taylor acoustic guitars.
Andy Powers on the New Taylor 800 Series
When you pick up a Taylor and experience the incredible tone, beautiful finish and amazingly comfortable neck, you're experiencing the work of the great luthier Andy Powers.

Andy Powers joined Taylor Guitars a few years ago as head luthier, and he has been tasked with making Taylors the best guitars in the world. Working tirelessly from his private workshop, Andy creates guitars the old-fashioned way -- with his head, heart and hands.

Learn what goes into a Taylor 800 series guitar, from the man himself.

Dave Hosler explores what makes the new ES-2 Expression System Taylor's greatest acoustic pickup yet. Dave shares his perspective on what
an acoustic guitar pickup should and shouldn't do, and how he transparently amplifies the acoustic sound of the 800 Series.
Taylor Guitars' Dave Hosler on the ES2 Pickup System
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors.

Learn how this innovative pickup system came to be, with the mad scientist behind the ES2.
