New 800 Series Wins a M.I.P.A.
The new 800 Series was honored with a Musikmesse International Press Award (M.I.P.A.) for Best Acoustic Guitar during the 2014 Musikmesse trade show in Frankfurt, Germany, held March 12-15. The M.I.P.A. winners were announced at a special awards ceremony on March 13 in Frankfurt, and a Taylor contingent was there to represent the company at the trade show, including the designer of the new 800 Series, Master Builder Andy Powers. More than 160 publications from around the world cast their votes for the top products in over 40 musical instrument categories to determine the M.I.P.A. winners. The prestigious award has been called the "Grammy" of the Musical Instrument/Pro Audio industry.
