Taylor Road Show Returns!

To help commemorate completion of the first year of Trinity Guitars’ location at 800 West Third Street in Jamestown, and his 15th year in business, Jim Holler will host the Taylor Guitars Road Show at 6:00 pm on November 19th. The event, the forth in the series of workshops Holler has sponsored featuring prestigious American guitar manufacturers, will be held at the West Third Street location.

On-hand to demonstrate the latest product offerings from Taylor Guitars, and 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 finds a personal satisfaction in the Road Show experience through the people he meets along the way. The most gratifying part, he says, 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].” 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 explains. Attendees on November 19th 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.

As he has done with his earlier workshops, Holler has arranged for the Road Show event to benefit an important community-oriented program. Proceeds from the sale of some 50 Taylor Guitars shirts will be donated to Allegany Region Missions for the Heart for Haiti fund. The contribution will  to be used to complete the construction of an orphanage and to build a school in earthquake-devastated Haiti. Fresh back from his second trip to Haiti, Holler has seen funds donated by Trinity Guitars patrons put to use in the orphanage that he is helping to build. “ Returning to Haiti last month was difficult to do after seeing the situation in April. Having two of the Haitian construction workers great me using my name was awesome and alone made the trip a success.  It was also heartwarming to see progress in this desperately poor nation ”
 
Holler added, “and, 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 required.  Persons interested in attending the November 19th event at 6PM should phone Trinity Guitars  at (716) 6654490 or email JimHoller@TrinityGuitars.com.
