Songs from the Wood: Ebony in Cameroon
In 2011, Taylor Guitars became the co-owner of an ebony sawmill in the African country of Cameroon. The Ebony Project takes you there to learn more about the people, the challenges, the work, and the improvements being made in the sourcing and processing of West African ebony (Diospyros crassifloria Hiern), a wood you’ll find on every Taylor guitar. We hope you come away with a deeper appreciation for the important steps that begin the process of bringing those guitars to life. You’ll also learn more about the lives and families you are supporting when you buy a Taylor guitar, along with Taylor’s efforts to cultivate a more sustainable future in Cameroon through a scalable replanting program.
