The first round of voting has begun at with a 100 artists selected as preliminary finalists. Once the first round of voting ends on June 30, the Artist Relations teams from Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings will choose five finalists from the top 50 to be outfitted with Taylor 300 or 400 Series Grand Auditorium acoustic guitars, a supply of Elixir Strings, and Elixir® Cables.

These finalists will be challenged to play music with their new gear and create a short video that showcases how they used their guitars, strings and cables. The videos will be posted on for a second round of voting starting on August 10.
