The 814ce Named Best In Show At Summer NAMM

On Saturday, July 19 at Summer NAMM, the popular “Best in Show” Saturday morning breakfast panel was held. Led by Music Inc. magazine Editor Frank Alkyer, dealers from across the nation highlighted the best products, services and companies at Summer NAMM. The panel, comprised of retail experts, selected products across several categories which they felt truly were a “must stock” in the retail space. Gabriel O’Brien from Larry’s Music in Wooster, Ohio, chose the 814ce as his pick for “Best in Show.” During the breakfast panel, he noted Taylor’s drive to continue to innovate. “In search of better tone they’ve made a thinner finish guitar and completely redesigned the bracing from the ground up. It’s really lively and has a great dynamic. I’m really knocked out by a company that, at the top of their game, will redesign their best-selling product for the sake of making it better.”
