They had guitars of many kinds that you wouldn't normally see, including the amazingly cool custom guitar with a sunken redwood top and macassar ebony back and sides. The back and the sides were essentially tiger-striped. The guitar had more low end than any acoustic guitar in my experience, which isn't a great surprise given the density of the woods involved. And we had a chance to play these expensive guitars during a break in the show, which was also very cool. I don't play a lot of $6500 guitars. :) (The ebony guitar was only about $4400. Gulp.)
Wayne, who plays with Manhattan Transfer, was with the road show to demonstrate the various guitars. As you might guess, he's a damned fine guitarist. One of the things that he had in his rack was a device that would record his output and loop it so that he could record one part, then play a second part against the first part. It was scary.
The solid-body guitars were, I suppose, nice enough, but not something I really need in any sense. This is a good thing.
And at the end of the show, I got a free set of strings. It's about time I changed my strings...
