Introducing The Taylor Experience at Chicago Music Exchange

Our brand new Taylor installation guides you to your perfect fit.

We’re extremely excited to unveil the brand new Taylor Experience at Chicago Music Exchange! Dedicated to one of our favorite acoustic manufacturers, the Taylor Experience provides an immersive, one-of-a-kind look at the American brand’s complete array of models and tonewoods.

Spanning an entire wall of our new acoustic room, the Taylor Experience puts the full palette of Taylor’s tonal variations right at your fingertips. With detailed descriptions and visual examples of different body shapes, tonewoods, and the effect they have on sound, you have a broadly printed, à la carte menu to help you sample all that Taylor has to offer. Pair your dream model to your dream tonewood and pull it right off the wall. Put it back and try another. Try every single one, if you like. That’s the Taylor Experience.

At CME, we want to serve all of you the best we can, and that means going beyond providing the best shopping experience. We want to provide the best musical experience, one that’s immersive, educational, and above all fun, and this unique look at one of America’s most respected guitar makers is just that. Visit the Taylor Experience at Chicago Music Exchange to see why and enjoy Taylor Guitars like never before.
