Taylor guitar chords

In 1995, Bob Taylor was interested in finding out if the perception of using exotic tone-woods in quality guitars was more important than luthier techniques and good design. Taylor recovered some oak from shipping-pallets found at the factory for the Pallet Guitar’s back and sides and used a nondescript 2×4 for the dreadnought’s top. The guitar’s neck was also made from oak recovered from the pallet and the fretboard features a Formica and pearl inlay, depicting a fork lift. In 2000, a limited edition of 25 of the Grand Auditorium bodied Pallet Guitars were reproduced with aluminum inlay included to accentuate the original nail holes in the pallet wood. These Pallet Guitars have been sold to collectors, but the original Pallet Guitar remains on display at the Taylor Guitars factory in El Cajon, California.
