Guitar Aficionado Announces the Super NAMM Award Winners

March 9th, 2016


SUPER-NAMM-GAGuitar Aficionado has announced the winners of the 2016 Super NAMM Awards. Each product submitted for consideration was reviewed and rated in person during NAMM 2016 in Anaheim, California.

Products were judged on value, versatility, design, craftsmanship, feel, sound, cosmetics and that elusive something special, “mojo.” Items were scored on an average based on a 1-10 rating which took into account only the criteria that were applicable for each product.

One judge shared, “It’s so enlightening to really dig into these new and innovative products and find out what makes them special. Each and every demo taught me something new! Kudos to our industry for continuing to present exciting and meaningful innovations and thoughtful craftsmanship.”

The Super NAMM Awards presented by the NewBay Music Group, top scorers for each publication were singled out and will be featured in an upcoming Super NAMM Awards guide. Please join Guitar Aficionado in congratulating its winners.
