The Great Guitars - A History

Bringing together the leading acoustic guitarists of their generation, The Great Guitars™ continues the guitar supergroup tradition.  Martin Taylor, who replaced Herb Ellis in the original Great Guitars in the 1980′s, and toured as part of the group alongside the legendary Barney Kessel and Charlie Byrd, is now carrying the guitar trio tradition forward into the 21st Century with The Great Guitars™ tours of the USA, Europe and Asia.
