SMG Visits with Taylor Guitar’s at 2010 NAMM

Another highlight for us at this years 2010 NAMM show was the Taylor Guitars exhibit. They have a TON of killer guitars and not just your standard 6-string acoustic guitar. Nope. Amongst the vast herd of beautiful guitars on display in the room were a few special models that captivated our attention, the Taylor Solidbody Series and The Taylor Baritone 8-string. We spoke with Taylor’s PR Manager Chalise Zolezzi who gave us a personal tour of the latest and greatest from this years Taylor factory. Later we sat down and rapped with one of Taylor Guitar’s very knowledgeable guitar guru’s,  Product Specialist Corey Witt, for a little one on one about the new “Hot Swappable” Taylor Solidbody guitars.

Check out the video below from 2010 NAMM of sharemyguitar.com’s Oscar Jordan testing out a couple sweet Taylor guitar’s and speaking with a few interesting cats along the way:

We spent a lot more time than we had planned in the Taylor booth. It was just slammed with cool people, killer axes and friendly Taylor representatives. I guess they can afford to be a bit more relaxed than your average exhibitor since they are based in Southern California. Not a major trek for them to get to the Anaheim Convention Center. Plus they’re on eof the cool kids of the class. It’s easy to be chill when everyone wants to hang out with you. On top of all this, what was particularly nice was that everything was meant to be touched, scrutinized and PLAYED! We had a blast checking out various acoustic models and at nearly every moment you could hear random jam sessions breaking out all across the room.  I think it’s safe to say that SMG will be checking back with Taylor Guitar’s at next years NAMM show. And we’re also looking forward to posting reviews and info about the guitars we previewed at this years NAMM. Stay tuned.

  • I was blown away by the killer Taylor’s we saw at this years NAMM. Only bad thing about the experience was the heartache from leaving them all behind…
