We’ve been working on bringing you better videos with truer audio so those customers not near our Lawrence, Kansas store can experience the sounds of our great instruments too – and those of you in the area can get a sneak peek before stopping by the store. Learn more about our videos here or check out our Youtube channel here. We have several great events coming up, including a uke clinic with the great Jim Jeans on Saturday, April 18 and the Taylor Guitars Road Show on Wednesday night, May 20. The Road Show is always a fantastic time and a great opportunity to play some unique, one-off instruments as well as check out some new models from the innovative guitar builders at Taylor. Moog – we’ve just added Moog effects and synths to our line up, which the whole staff is excited about – stop by and check out this classic line that always delivers rich analog sounds and allows you limitless creativity. New Fenders and Squiers have been arriving including this killer American Deluxe Strat HSS with a Shawbucker pickup, S-1 switching, plus a cool ‘Passing Lane’ discrete pushbutton for kicking it into high gear for leads. Eric M. and Anne T. put together a cool look back on their February visit to Collings Guitars in Austin, Texas – you can check that out in our Behind the Scenes at Collings post. Last but not least, a huge congrats go out to all the Lawrence, Kansas bands that went to the SXSW conference – we proudly supported I Heart Local Music’s Saturday showcase as part of the Midcoast Takeover showcases.
