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.

JW Music attends exclusive Taylor Guitar event at 2019 NAMM Conference

JW Music kicked off its time at the 2019 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) conference by attending an exclusive dealer event sponsored by Taylor Guitar. The event was an opportunity to see artisanal Taylor Guitars—small runs and one-of-a-kind guitars. Held in a gallery setting, it was a visual explosion—a feast for a guitarist’s palette! Incredible inlay patterns, unique combinations of exotic woods, and much more filled the space. We also learned of some new products and baccessories that will be part of Taylor’s 2019 offerings, but more on that in a separate post. Stay tuned!
