The Grand Orchestra Wins a M.I.P.A.
The Taylor Grand Orchestra was honored with a Musikmesse International Press Award (M.I.P.A.) for Best Acoustic Guitar during the 2013 Musikmesse trade show in Frankfurt, Germany, held April 10-13. The M.I.P.A. winners were announced at a special awards ceremony on April 11 in Frankfurt, and a Taylor contingent was there to represent the company at the trade show, including co-founders Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug. 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.
