Default Looks like Trey Hensley has left Taylor for Bourgeois!

Looks like Trey has left the Taylor fold for Bourgeois guitars! Bourgeois guitars are what took me completely away from Taylors too! This dude is an ANIMAL!!

If you want to experience guitar artist endorser whiplash, check into how many different brands Laurence Juber has endorsed over the years...

Though to be fair, he's been with Martin for some years now. Prior to that, however, he was getting one endorsement after another.

Does Trey endorse any brand?

Last time I saw him he was playing his Wayne Henderson. I think he's got a few different brands.

You’d think with Andy pushing the Doc Watson story as his inspiration for the GP series guitars that Taylor would be throwing tons of money at a bluegrass artist like Trey, to have him solely endorse Taylor! Maybe he just realized that a Bourgeois is a better tone than the GP! Did I just write that?!!

Maybe someone with the amazing ear and talent that he has just likes great guitars. Taylor, Collings, Martin,Borgeois etc are all great guitars. No need to get all caught up in brand wars. Not everybody only likes one or two brands.

Also he posted a video of him playing his GP and giving a shout out to Taylor two days ago.

Trey still plays his Taylor, and his Martin Sinker Mahogany, and his Henderson. He and I had a little jam on Saturday and he played a Ken Hooper guitar that was handed to him. I was playing the new Preston Thompson sinker mahogany that I just got at Winfield last week.

Allen, this is a bit off-topic, but given all of the great guitars you've played on various videos at Dream Guitars, how does the Preston Thompson stack up? Yes, of course you acquired it, but now that you've had it for a short while, what do you think?

I like it a lot. It is a good example of what a mahogany dreadnought is supposed to sound like. It is my understanding that the folks at Winfield contacted Preston about furnishing a prize guitar for the Flatpicking championship, and he made it his pet project. This would have been the last guitar he was involved with, and he didn't live to see it finished. So I thought choosing it for the prize should be an appropriate way to honor his memory. I'm thankful that it is also a really good guitar, but honestly all 3 prize guitars this year sounded outstanding.

Or maybe not . He bought Taylors before he endorsed them, even though Bourgeois were available.

He has lots of guitars, including Martin, Thompson, Eastman, Taylor, and others already mentioned here. One of them is a Bourgeois.

AFAIK his Taylor 810 is still his main guitar. His GP is all over his most recent album coming out October 2019.

Do you think he's going to stop playing them and performing with them because he now has a Bourgeois? Perhaps, but unlikely.
