180px-taylor.gifThe Taylor Guitars DN4 was chosen as "Best Acoustic Guitar 2008" by representatives of 100 music magazines from around the globe, at "the Grammys of the musical instrument and pro audio industry," the annual Musikmesse International Press Awards (M.I.P.A.). The 2008 M.I.P.A. awards were presented to winners at a grand party and ceremony held during the Musikmesse Prolight & Sound international trade show, on March 13, 2008.

The DN4 is one of Taylor’s pure acoustic Dreadnought models, built with back and sides of satin-finished Ovangkol, a glossy Sitka spruce top, cream binding and small abalone fingerboard inlay dots.

Taylor has a long history of M.I.P.A. wins. The GS, which was released in 2006 as Taylor’s first new all-acoustic model in over a decade, earned “Best Acoustic Guitar 2007.” The groundbreaking T5 electric/acoustic hybrid won “Best Acoustic Guitar 2006,” despite its “hidden” arsenal of bona fide analog electric sounds. Taylor’s Nylon Series won “Best Acoustic Guitar” in 2002 and tied for the same award in 2003, and Taylor’s mid-priced 110 was nominated for “Best Acoustic Guitar 2004.”
