The GS Mini-e Walnut is a new edition, incorporating beautiful Walnut tonewood in the back and sides and Taylor's articulate Expression System 2 onboard electronics. The GS Mini-e Walnut appeals to beginners and experts alike thanks to its incredible playability.
GS Mini Body
The primary feature of the GS Mini is its scaled-down Grand Symphony body, however that does not mean that the sound has to be scaled down too! This scaled-down Grand Symphony guitar is considered to be a modern take on a parlour guitar as it is just as fun to play at home as it is to take out on the road.
Taylor have employed a solid Sitka Spruce top, often a popular choice for an acoustic soundboard thanks to its outstanding projection and expansive range of tones. The top is reinforced thanks to X-bracing with Relief Route underneath. The back and sides are made up of Walnut, offering a deep, rich low end and snappy highs with plenty of warmth and clarity. The smaller Grand Symphony shape combined with the tonewoods gives you a well-balanced acoustic that can adapt to any playing style.
Firmly joined to the GS Mini-e Walnut body is a 23 1/2 inch scale length sapele neck. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard which boasts 20 frets and 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays act as a handy guide.
Taylor are a pioneer when it comes to considering and creating innovative electronics to amplify their models. The GS Mini-e Walnut is equipped with the Expression System 2 pickup known for its unique behind-the-saddle design. The ES2 has three individually calibrated pickup sensors which are more able in translating the guitar's natural voice. The ES2 pickup works with Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp to give you a responsive, accurate sound. Plus, tweaking your output is made simple thanks to Volume and Tone controls, guaranteeing that the GS Mini-E Walnut sounds excellent through any amp or PA system.
Taylor chrome tuners are fitted to the headstock to uphold tuning integrity with precision, even after a long set. The GS Mini-e Walnut features a Tusq nut and Micarta saddle that improve sustain and intonation. The natural finish of the GS Mini-e Walnut is complemented with a tortoise-pattern pickguard and a three ring soundhole rosette. Taylor include a hard but lightweight gig bag with every purchase, so you can take your new, fun-size guitar wherever you want to with ease.
