Taylor Takes 10 Player’s Choice Awards

On August 15, Acoustic Guitar magazine announced the winners of its 2011 Player’s Choice Awards (PCAs), a biennial vote cast by players and enthusiasts about their favorite guitars, gear and instructional products. Taylor Guitars was recognized with a record-breaking 10 Players Choice Awards, including five Gold Medals in the categories of “Small Body Flattop” for the 612ce, “12-String Guitar” for the GS6-12, “Nylon-String Guitar” for the NS72ce, “Travel Guitar” for the GS Mini and for “Best Acoustic/Electric” guitar for the 714ce. Taylor was also recognized by the players with Silver Medals in the categories of “Dreadnought,” “Mid-Sized Flattop Guitar,” “Jumbo Body” and “Guitar of the Year,” and with a Bronze Medal for “Electric Guitar.”

As a survey of readers, the Player’s Choice Awards gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite guitars and products in categories ranging from Dreadnought Guitars to Stand-Alone Recorders (see a list of all categories and past winners here). In 2008, Taylor captured eight awards, which established a previous record for the company.
