I love Taylor guitars - not just for their quality and sound but also for the philosophies behind their design and manufacture. Before buying a fabulous 562ce 12 string, I watched a lot of Youtube uploads about how Bob Taylor has evolved his attitude to making guitars and how he came to decide that Any Powers is the best man to carry the company on when he steps down. In turn, this led me to wanting to watch and hear Andy play - and what an inspiration that proved to be.

If you haven't landed on these videos before I strongly recommend that you make yourself a brew or open a bottle of something long and cool, then sit back and enjoy ...

Inside the craft of guitar making
Andy talks about why he loves making guitars - this is a man driven by his love of the instrument.

"Light of Day" - 800 Series Guitar Demo
Not just a masterclass in overlaying multiple tracks, but also a fabulous example of artistry.

Acoustic Guitar Sessions Andy Powers
A mixture of 3 performances and brief anecdotal explanations of how two of the pieces came into being.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
