Hello, haven't been here for quite awhile. As a retired PatternMaker, ( precision machining ), I'm sure touring the Taylor factory would be facinating and educational since some of the technology was developed on site and represents cutting edge process. I'll make it to the Martin factory long before the Taylor factory, but both experiences are ones that I would love to have. I have several brands and models of guitars but my 814ce Fall 2006 Limited rings like a crystal bell and it would be great to see how and why in person, always a different experience than researching something.

Thanks for serving, Ed.  And thanks to Jim for starting the group and serving as well. 

I've wanted to tour the Taylor factory, and one of my daughters lives nearby it in Carlsbad, CA.  However, seems like we only visit her around Christmas and that's the only time the tour is not available!  We'll have to change our schedule in 2011.

Well, hello to everyone.  I have been handed the reins, administratively, to the Taylor Owners Group and I look forward to my continued participation with my fellow devoted Taylor owners.


I toured the Taylor factory a few months ago and am still buzzed by the experience.

I certainly agree with that.
Comment by Jim Handsfield on December 30, 2010 at 8:14pm
Walt, that's good to know.  It's also a good idea to have more than one who can administer a group.

Ed - 


Done - you are now an administrator.  

Comment by Ed Mehollin on December 30, 2010 at 6:48pm
Count me in then.  Thanks for the opportunity.
Comment by Jim Handsfield on December 30, 2010 at 6:13pm
That would be great, Ed. There's not a lot to do - in fact, other than reading messages that show up, I've not had to do anything to maintain the group. Let me know and I'll promote your membership to administrator.
