The Taylor GS Mini left-handed electro acoustic guitar is the perfect solution for travelling musicians who want a compact model that produce full-size power. Modelled on the Grand Symphony, the GS Mini produces the same lush tonal palette and impressive power of its larger cousin, but is much easier to transport. Built to the high standard of quality we have come to expect from the team at Taylor, this is a fantastic model that is built to take all you can throw at it.
Superb Taylor Construction
The back and sides of the guitar are built using laminate rosewood, which has the enviable tonal qualities of delivering a sweet and warm mid-range, whilst gently stretching beyond into the lower and upper frequency ranges to ensure a full-bodied timbre. The beauty of employing laminate material in the GS Mini means that it is much more resilient than a solid tonewood when dealing with changes in humidity, making it an excellent guitar to take on your travels.
The top is constructed from a Taylor favourite, Sitka spruce. Noted for its excellent resonant qualities, it makes the perfect soundboard as it projects the timbre of the GS Mini with effortless grace and articulation. The top is reinforced using the GS Mini bracing pattern with relief rout, giving the spruce enough space to resonate freely, whilst maintaining a supportive and robust framework to prevent buckling or warping over time. Whatever style of music your play, and however you prefer to play - i.e. using a pick or fingerstyle -, you can rest assured that the subtle nuances of your performances will be translated with the utmost clarity.
Taylor Expression System T Electronics
In addition to the natural sound projection abilities of the tonewoods, the guitar comes with Taylor's ES-T electronics system for times when you wish to play through an amplifier. The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual response elements for each string. It features a built-in preamp to give the signal a boost, if necessary, and the same active controls that are on the full ES in more expensive models. These are discreetly tucked away so that they don't interfere with your playing.
The Taylor GS Mini left-handed electro acoustic guitar in natural finish is a beautifully designed little powerhouse, which comes protected by a slender varnish coating to preserve the natural finish of the tonewoods for as long as possible. In order to ensure that you’re good to hit the road as soon as your guitar arrives, Taylor has included a gig bag to protected for new GS Mini, as well as equipping each model with Elixir Phosphor Bronze Medium strings.
