Taylor Guitar Factory Tour

One of the great things about our travels is that we can go on factory tours. While in San Diego we toured the Taylor Guitar Factory which was a great free tour. It looked like a great place to work for those with jobs there. Also, the tour was the most relaxed tour I've experienced because the guide let us take photos and ask questions the whole tour. The whole thing was casual and very informative. Here are the photos from our tour!

Here is the wood that they make the guitars out of. They store it outside under a tent.
