The US guitar giant’s master guitar builder will appear at the Epsom branch of GuitarGuitar to share his design philosophy and approach to guitar crafting.
Powers will also be sharing Taylor’s new, award-winning and highly sought after rosewood 800 and maple 600 Series models. In 2014, Powers redesigned the 800 Series to include a variety of tone-enhancing refinements, including new bracing, thin finish, protein glues, and custom-calibrated back and side wood thicknesses for each body shape. Earlier this year, Powers applied a similar customized approach to the 600 Series, incorporating additional refinements such as a special roasting process (torrefaction) for the Sitka spruce top to produce an aged sound, and a premium, hand-rubbed color finish. Together with the design advancements applied to the 800 Series, the new 600s yield a warmer, sweeter maple guitar voice than ever before.
The first event will be held in the UK at GuitarGuitar Epsom on Wednesday, May 27, and the second at Musikhaus Hermann on Thursday, May 28.
