The Taylor Guitars Road Show is returning to dealerships around the globe.
The in-store events give fans an opportunity to connect with Taylor factory staff, play one-off guitars and meet like-minded players. The sessions let Taylor players hear the latest developments from the company and try out new and yet-to-be-released models.
Now in its sixth year, the Road Show offers a format in which Taylor's product experts share insights on the company's guitar-making process, explain designs such as the Expression System acoustic pickup, and demonstrate how different body shapes and woods affect tone. After each demonstration, guests are invited to take part in the 'Petting Zoo' – a hands-on playing session where they get to sample a variety of different models. Admission to each Road Show is free.
The 2012 Road Show tour will start on March 26 in Munich, Germany, before moving across Europe, the United States and Canada, with over 130 dates and locations yet to be announced for June. Additional international and domestic dates will be announced soon.
