Congratulations to Kenneth Lyon, the lucky winner of our Taylor guitar giveaway. Thanks again to Michael & Violetta Ward for donating this beautiful guitar, and to all of you who entered. Thanks to you, we were able to raise over $2,000! Rumor has it that there might be another guitar giveaway for 2017! Stay tuned for that.
At midnight on December 17th (just in time for Christmas), we're giving away a limited edition 30th anniversary Taylor guitar with a retail value of $5,498, with all proceeds going toward the Trinity Arts Center building fund.
The Taylor XXX-KE is a Grand Concert guitar with a tight bass response, bright mid range, and super-clear treble, plus increased volume and projection.
In addition to its one-of-a-kind sound and responsiveness, this guitar is a beautiful combination of Koa wood and Engelmann Spruce, decorated with a one-of-a-kind mother of pearl and 18 carat gold inlay on the ebony fretboard and a luminescent pearl and abalone torch on the ebony backstrap.
Add to this Taylor's famous Expression pickup system, slot head tuners, and unmatched action and tonal response, and you have a unique instrument that celebrates the 30th anniversary of Taylor's prestigious guitar-making history.
