Taylor Guitars Announces 3rd Annual Road Show
Posted by Michael Mueller on February 13, 2009 at 12:38 PM
Taylor Guitars has announced it will bring the award-winning Taylor Guitars Road Show to dealerships across the U.S. and abroad in 2009. Now in its third year, the Taylor Guitars Road Show is a guitar lover's dream: a fun, lively in-store gathering that brings enthusiasts together with Taylor clinicians and experts straight from the company's factory in El Cajon, California. At each Road Show, the Taylor Road Show team shares insights on the company's guitar making process, including an informative demonstration on how body shapes and woods affect tone. After the demonstration, players are invited to take part in the show's most popular feature, the "Petting Zoo": an opportunity to pick up and play a variety of different models, as well as rare and custom Build to Order models. Admission to each Road Show is free.
At select locations, a special Electric Road Show will highlight Taylor's award-winning electric lineup, including the new and much-raved-about T3 and T3/B, the ever-popular Taylor SolidBody, as well as the versatile, top-selling electric/acoustic hollowbody, the T5. Attendees will also have the chance to explore Taylor's line of acoustic guitars, and have the chance to win the grand prize: an opportunity to build their own custom guitar through Taylor's Build To Order program.
The 2009 Road Show tour will kick off in March with multiple dates in California and Oklahoma, as well as an East Coast swing with special stops in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
In 2008, Taylor brought the Road Show to over 146 locations throughout the U.S., Germany and England. The Taylor Guitars Road Show was awarded the 2008 Supplier Excellence Award from Music Inc. magazine in the category of Events for putting "the excitement of the company's factory tours into retail dealers across the country."
