Another way to do it is to have some professional players take a few guitars to various places and give seminars on their respective styles, but featuring the guitars so folks can come up and try them after the seminar. Taylor did that for quite some time. Usually, Guitar Center hosted those events. It wasn't a Taylor road show, but instead a single solo fingerstyle player (or maybe a flatpicker) such as Preston Reed or Steven King (the fingerstyle player). In other words, top notch players featuring Taylor guitars.
