Learn the Basics of Acoustic Guitar Maintenance

Keeping your acoustic guitar sounding and looking its best requires periodic maintenance. Learn the basics, from polishing your guitar to tightening the tuning nuts, in this video from the Taylor Guitars repair facility. 

Proper care of your guitar would not be complete without restringing. Since 1999, Taylor has been factory-fitting its steel-string models with Elixir® Strings. Check out Part 2 (opens in new tab) of the maintenance video for tips on restringing the Taylor way.
