Taylor Guitars is readying its fan-favorite Road Show event for its first-ever tour in Australia. Making a series of eight stops, the Road Shows will kick-off on March 24 in Gladesville, at the Gladesville Guitar Factory, and end on April 5 in Mount Lawley at The Rock Inn.


 

Now in its fifth year, the Taylor Guitars Road Show brings together guitar enthusiasts and Taylor experts straight from the company’s factory in El Cajon, California for a lively, in-store event. At each Road Show, the Taylor team shares insights on the company’s guitar-making process and demonstrates how body shapes and woods affect tone. After the demonstration, players are invited to take part in the “Petting Zoo”: an opportunity to play a variety of different models, as well as rare and custom Build to Order guitars. Admission to each Road Show is free, and attendees can invite others to join them by visiting the Taylor Guitars Road Show page located at www.taylorguitars.com/roadshow.
