Just arrived! PRS SE AX20E Acoustic!

The PRS SE AX20E pairs mahogany back and sides with a solid spruce top for warm, balanced tone. When matched with traditional “X” bracing, which allows the top to vibrate while providing stability, the SE AX20E has a punch that stands alone beautifully or cuts through the mix. The Angelus Cutaway body shape delivers comfort and playability, well suited for picking and fingerstyle playing.

Plugged in, the Fishman GT1 pick up system delivers dynamic, organic tone and allows players to easily take this guitar from rehearsal to the stage. This electronics system features an undersaddle pickup and soundhole mounted preamp with easy-to-access volume and tone controls.

Additional high-quality features include a solid spruce top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. All PRS SE acoustics ship with a high-quality hardshell case!

New Taylor Guitar Picks and Guitar Straps Coming Soon!

New Taylor Guitar Picks and Guitar Straps Coming Soon!

We learned at the 2019 NAMM show that Taylor will be releasing two new accessories in 2019—new picks and guitar straps! This may sound like it is not a big deal, but it really is, and here’s why. We got a firsthand demo with the new picks and the sonic difference that each model (see photo) made was incredible. In essence, Taylor has developed their picks to match or augment the sound of their guitars. Want a brighter sound, or a more mellow low end? They have a pick that will improve both ends of the spectrum, and more. You have to see and hear the difference. We hope to have these in the store as soon as they are released.

Also, Taylor has created a new line of guitar straps (sorry, no photo, yet) that match the colors of their acoustic guitars beautifully! These straps are made of premium soft leather and the coordination with the guitar line is outstanding. As soon as we have these new items in stock we will share the news with all our customers, stay tuned!

Taylor Guitars: The Fundamentals Done Right!

Taylor Guitars: The Fundamentals Done Right!

As mentioned in our previous post, we enjoyed seeing Taylor’s artisanal guitar craftsmanship, but what really impressed us at the show were three guitars that were fundamentally solid: a Taylor 317e; Taylor 517; and a Taylor 517e. Incredible sound projection with the V-Class Bracing, spot-on finish work; and comfortable in the arms (and hands!) when played. All three come equipped with a handtooled hard shell case. Taylor perfection and all three part of the 2019 offering s to Taylor customers. Interested? Message us on Facebook or email justin@jwmusic.com for more details.
