Taylor Guitars is hitting the road with a whole slew of domestic and international Road Show dates.

El Cajon, CA (March 12, 2013) -- From coast to coast and around the globe, Taylor Guitars is returning to dealers with its award-winning Road Show event. Held only at Authorized Taylor Dealers, the Road Show connects fans with Taylor factory experts and offers attendees the chance to play exceptional, one-off Build to Order guitars and the latest models from Taylor, including the company's new Grand Orchestra guitar.

Each Road Show features a format in which Taylor's factory experts show how tonewoods and body shapes affect a guitar's sound; demonstrate innovative designs such as the Expression System acoustic-electric pickup; and share the latest development ideas behind the company's guitar line. Joining this year's Road Show guitar lineup will be the new Grand Orchestra model. The guitar was released earlier this year at Winter NAMM and will be available at each Road Show during the event's "Petting Zoo," which encourages people to sample a rich variety of Taylor guitars. Admission to each Road Show is free.

The 2013 Road Show tour will start on Tuesday, March 26 in New Mexico with shows scheduled across Europe, the United States and Canada, covering nearly 180 locations through June. Additional dates will be announced in the weeks to come.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
