Martin Taylor guitars


Martin Taylor is the best british jazz guitarist, he's also respected world wide by other jazz guitarists such as Pat Metheny. Martin Taylor has won countless awards for his skills and musical talent, winning "Best Guitarist" 7 times from The British Jazz Award.

Martin Taylor's style is a mix of traditional jazz licks, with excellent use of arpeggios mixing through his chord progressions. He's also described as a acoustic jazz guitarist due to his tone and style. I first discovered Martin Taylor when I saw an article in a guitar magazine, the magazine tabbed out his version of "Georgia on My Mind", after listening and learning this song he became one of my idols.

His guitar tone can range from acoustic to traditional low tone smoothness. He does this with one guitar, made by Mike Vanden a small guitar maker based in scotland. His guitar his unique nobody really uses these guitars but Martin Taylor. He gets his acoustic tones through the piezo pickup on the bridge, and other tones when mixing with the sole neck pickup.
