Remember when all you had to do to protect and store your favorite Taylor acoustic guitar was insert a soundhole humidifier or humidity-maintenance system in the case and think, “That’ll do, right?” Oh, [Chuckle] that’s so 2019. 

Sure, you’ll still have to do those things, but Taylor Guitars – no stranger to modernity – has taken the process of activity tracking and hygrometer monitoring for your Taylor acoustic a level up with the introduction of the TaylorSense Guitar Health Monitoring System.

Paul Riario

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
