Trinity Guitars in Jamestown will host the Taylor Guitars Road Show at 6:30 p.m. on Monday. The event will be held at the Trinity Guitars' studio at its 800 W. Third St. location.
On-hand to demonstrate the latest product offerings from Taylor Guitars and to explain how the shapes and woods used in the construction of different models affect their tone, will be Taylor clinician Corey Witt.
After 25 years of guitar playing, Corey Witt a personal satisfaction in the road show experience through the people he meets along the way. The most gratifying part, he said, is "meeting the spouse, significant other, parent, grandparent - essentially the non-guitar player -who comes up to say that he or she had a great time and learned more about why guitars sound the way they do. Guitar players will show up for the romance and the chance to dream about new instruments, but at the road shows, I get the opportunity to demystify (guitar playing)."
Trinity Guitars in Jamestown will host the Taylor Guitars Road Show at 6:30 p.m. on Monday.
What is his favorite Taylor model?
"Probably a 516CE. I have an aggressive picking and strumming hand, so the cedar top and mahogany back and sides are a little more forgiving with their natural compression and midrange squish," he said.
Attendees on Monday will have an opportunity to play the instruments, pick up premiums provided by Elixir Strings (subject to availability) and, potentially, win a custom-designed Taylor guitar.
Trinity owner Jim Holler said, "Our workshops provide our customers with behind-the-scenes insights into the companies who build the products we offer, give them tools for improving the enjoyment of their music and have some fun in the process."
Attendance at the Taylor Guitars Road Show is free, but space is limited and advance reservations are suggested. Persons interested in attending the Monday event should phone Trinity Guitars at 665-4490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
