Just for fun: enjoy these five guitar fails.
In a sadly true story, this young man actually had the nerve to stick an electric guitar down his pants and try to walk out of a local guitar store. Thankfully a store employee had the wherewithal to snap a picture on his phone. Haha!
The year was 1995. The name “Taylor Guitars” was becoming known as a great-sounding, quality guitar when one of the most interesting stories in modern guitar-making history took place. It was the birth of Taylor’s “Pallet Guitar”.
The story – now a legend complete with multiple versions – still proves the point that owner Bob Taylor was trying to drive home at the time: the quality of construction is as important to a guitar as the type of wood used.
Taylor’s original Shop Pallet Guitar is still on display at the Taylor factory in California and this is the story of how it got there.

A close friend called me the other day asking about beginner guitars. Apparently his oldest son, now 12, had decided that he wanted a guitar for Christmas.
“I don’t want to spend too much money” he said. “I’m afraid this is just a fad and he’ll just end up giving up on the guitar like he did with the piano.“
