Description

Details

The Taylor GS Mini-e Bass Left-Handed Acoustic Bass Guitar in Natural joins the GS Mini stable, and offers the same peerless Taylor craftsmanship to this remarkable small-scale acoustic bass. Designed to ensure the same, great tone and dynamic range of a Grand Symphony, but in a more compact and easily transportable body, the GS Mini-e bass is perfect for taking with you wherever you go. This left-handed model is designed for all the lefties so that they don't miss out on the fun.

Outstanding Taylor construction

The back and sides are constructed from layered sapele, which isn't just beautiful to look at, but boasts exceptional durability and contributes to the affordability of the bass. A core of poplar is sandwiched between two veneers of sapele, which gives the back and sides greater resilience when dealing with changes in humidity - often the case with life on the road and a must for this travel-friendly model.

The top wood is built using solid Sitka spruce, a bright sounding tonewood that projects efficiently to generate a wide dynamic range. Whether you play fingerstyle or with a pick, you can rest assured that the tones will spring forth confidently. Combined with the GS Mini body shape, this acoustic bass offers a warm and thick mid to low end timbre.

Short-scale neck design

For such a natural sounding bass, it may be surprising to find the neck is a mere 23-1/2-inch scale length, which is about 10 inches shorter than a standard bass scale length. However, thanks to Taylor's collaboration with D'Addario to create custom nylon-core string with phosphor bronze wrap wire, the bass responds with a delightfully slinky feel. The condensed fret-spacing makes this model a joy for anybody to play, from children and new bass players, to adults and seasoned pros.

Taylor's ES-B electronics

In addition to the natural acoustic ability of the GS Mini-e bass, Taylor's ES-B pickup/preamp has been fitted for playback via an amplifier. The ES-B pickup incorporates Taylor's Expression 2 piezo design elements, which is paired with a built-in preamp with digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner has a built-in LED display to indicate tuning, low-battery, and independent Volume and Tone controls. A pair of two button cell 3V batteries provide approximately 300 hours of use, and battery life is conserved thanks to an auto-off system that kicks in after 3 minutes of the guitar being idle.

Taylor GS Mini-e Bass Left-Handed Acoustic Bass Guitar in Natural is perfect for touring bassists who demand excellence. Whether you're playing plugged or unplugged, fingerstyle or picking, you can rest assured that this little beauty is ready and waiting, good to go whenever you are. Not only that, but each bass comes with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for protection and comfort.
