NEWS: Update on Dave Carroll’s broken Taylor guitar

A couple of days ago I posted about guitarist Dave Carroll’s song ‘United Breaks Guitars,’ written after his beloved Taylor acoustic suffered terminal damage while in the care of United Airlines. Dave wrote a song about it (click here to see it on YouTube if you haven’t already).

Now United and Taylor have both responded to Carroll. United have offered to compensate him for the guitar. Hear Carroll’s response in the video below:

Also, Bob Taylor of Taylor Guitars has chipped in with some advice on travelling with a guitar, and some great news for owners of any guitar (not just a Taylor) which has befallen a similar catastrophic crunch.
