Taylor Guitars Kicks Off 2015 Road Shows

In-store events give fans a chance to meet Taylor staff, play one-off custom instruments, and network with other musicians.

El Cajon, CA (March 18, 2015) -- Taylor Guitars' Road Show is back and making its way around the globe at Taylor Guitars dealers, giving guitarists the opportunity to connect with Taylor factory staff, play exceptional one-off custom Taylor guitars, and meet like-minded players. The Road Show also brings players the latest guitar developments from the company, including the redesigned and award-winning maple 600 Series and rosewood 800 Series models.

Now in its eighth year, Taylor's Road Show is more popular than ever, continuing to fill stores with guitar players of all levels who are eager to learn more about Taylor and guitars in general. Beyond learning about the company's guitar-making philosophy, innovative designs such as the Expression System acoustic pickup, and forward-thinking wood-sourcing efforts around the world, guests will also hear a demonstration of how different Taylor body shapes and woods affect tone. After the demonstration, guests are encouraged to test-drive a variety of different models and ask questions. Admission to each Road Show is free.

A father-and-son team work together to create an original, futuristic gold guitar, and the result is extremely satisfying.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
