Description

We are always on the lookout for an up and coming luthier with extraordinary talent. At the Newport/Miami Guitar Festival we were thrilled to discover the work of David Taylor, DT Guitars. Al Petteway and I both played his instruments repeatedly and were moved by the gorgeous tone and remarkable craftsmanship. I always look for the voice of a young builder and all 4 of his guitars on display had it, a sign to me that he is for real. What I sense is a powerful modern bass that is round and punctuated along with articulate trebles that willingly sing out the melody notes. These David Taylor Guitars also strum very well and the full sound is suitable for many styles from Fingerstyle to Jazz to Singer/Songwriter and everything in between. David happens to be the son of a wordclass knife maker, Gray Taylor, and carries on his families craftsmanship skills as evidenced by the lovely inlay work and fine details in his guitars. If you've been looking for a young builder to believe in you owe to yourself to learn more about David Taylor and his DT Guitars. This De La Rosa is crafted from rare Amazon Rosewood and Carpathian Spruce and features an armrest Bevel, Soundport, Cutaway, Carved Heel and gorgeous inlay work throughout.

This one is a sweetheart, warm Amazon Rosewood tone, comfort from the armrest bevel and upgrades like a side soundport, abalone top trim and headstock trim. This is a lot of guitar and can be yours for under $5k while David's prices are still very reasonable.
 
David Taylor's guitars have a warm, sweet tone that is very satisfying as a fingerstyle player. His workmanship is as good as any luthier I've seen.
