As a Taylor GuitarsCustom dealer, Chicago Music Exchange will work with you to help you choose from an assortment of Taylor’s finest tonewoods—including non-standard species and premium grades—as well as a rich palette of feature options and premium appointments that’ll help you bring your distinctive Taylor dream guitar to life! We wanted to give our customers the next level of Taylor guitars, so we went out to the factory ourselves and picked out some of the best woods they have available. While only some of those models are in the shop, now, some are still in production. Here’s a look at some of the new Taylor Custom arrivals available at CME!View Details
Watch any of the Oasis music videos from the height of the band’s mid-’90s heyday—like “Don’t Look Back In Anger” or “Champagne Supernova,” for example—or live concert footage from that era, and you’re sure to see the guitar that started it all for Noel Gallagher. While the guitarist played various Gibson and Epiphone guitars during the early Oasis tours, it was his ‘80s Epiphone Riviera in a Dark Wine Red finish that really stood out.View Details
