No one knows what airport to fly into to get to North Yonkers. I mean really. Or was it North Ypsilanti? It's all so confusing. North Yuma or Yakima? Yucaipa? Yuba City? Deez peeps needs to give us something to WORK with here.

NY Guitar Show: 1 Booth Just opened Up...You do NOT have to drive through NYC to get here!!!!!



We were sold out in the main room, however someone bailed on us last night, still waiting for an explanation, but since he never gave deposit I suppose that’s moot point. With that said, I have a space open of the NY Guitar Show next weekend April 22 & 23 at Freeport NY. Just 20 minutes east of JFK airport. $450 is the price and the booth is an inclusive with table, chairs, pipe and drape, electric and W--Fi. Contact us for info…we can keep a1dding as we can move into the lobby…another great spot, quieter and with those that don’t need electric is perfect. Contact Rich@nyguitarexpo.com or 516-435-8382

With over 10,000 square feet of exhibit space and many new vendors, we are set up to be fresher and bolder than any of our first 5 years. We are bringing back by popular demand the Les Paul Exhibit, the private Amp Room with Homestead Amps, Taylor Guitars giving away a Taylor acoustic guitar BOTH days of the show and the first 50 people each day get a free set of D'Addario strings.

Sneak peek here www.nyguitarexpo.com/media/2017GuitarExpoTVspot.wmv.

Taylor Guitar Giveaway Both Days NY Guitar Show: Taylor Guitar Giveaway: Taylor will be giving away a guitar BOTH DAYS of the 2017 NY Guitar Show. First up is the GS Mini Bass, an exciting new addition to the popular GS Mini family, the GS Mini Bass is a small-scale acoustic bass that incorporates a pair of breakthrough design features: custom bass strings with a nylon core and phosphor-bronze wrap wire developed by D'Addario and a new Taylor-patented, dual-pronged bridge pin. The result is a compact, ultra-playable acoustic bass with surprisingly rich and deep tone for its size. Academy Series: Taylor's new Academy Series is a line of affordable acoustic guitars designed to make an enjoyable playing experience more accessible than ever before. The new line leverages Taylor's reputation for exceptional playability and tone, packing all the essential features of a great acoustic guitar into an entry-level price point. The new series - featuring the Dreadnought A10e, Grand Concert A12e and nylon-string Grand Concert A12e-N - delivers all the most important qualities a developing player needs to enjoy a rewarding guitar experience - playing comfort, appealing acoustic tone, performance reliability, and the ability to easily maintain it for many years. The series even features a simple armrest on the guitar's lower bout to enhance the playing comfort.

Now building for the likes of Warren Haynes, Jay Jay French, John Prestia, Dirk Miller, Deren Ney, Adam Gorman, Tyler Anselmo, Jorgen Carlsson , Bobby Kyle and Linwood Taylor, Haynes has been a long time user, inspiring McMahon to design a line of amps to suit the particular tone of Haynes' signature Gibson Les Paul sound.
