The Taylor GS Mini was designed to offer the tone and dynamic range of a Grand Symphony, in a more compact and easily transportable body. Don't let the size fool you though. The Taylor GS Mini Mahogany is built to Taylor's uncompromisingly high-standards of quality and can more than hold its own against larger models.
The top is built using Solid Tropical Mahogany, a dense tonewood that delivers a very bright and punchy sound. The Mahogany top gives a short and snappy tone to the guitar but throughout its life can develop into an incredibly warm and natural soundboard. It is well suited to players who are looking for a tone with plenty of individuality and attitude.
The back and sides are constructed from Sapele laminate, which is composed of a filler layer between an interior and exterior layer of Sapele laminate. 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 neck has been fashioned from Sapele and fitted with a solid ebony fingerboard that houses 20 highly playable frets. To add an extra layer of protection to the wood the neck, back and sides have all been finished with a varnish. It is durable enough to protect from scratches and rubbing, whilst also being thin enough to allow the wood to resonate without interference.
The guitar's design is completed with a three ring rosette around the soundboard, chrome buttons and die-cast chrome tuners. A tortoise pickguard also adds protection to the body whilst maintaining the high-quality aesthetic.
The Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar comes pickup-ready. Get yourself Taylor's ES-Go soundhole pickup and a screwdriver and within a few minutes you can set the guitar up to be plugged into an acoustic amp, recorder or PA system. The GS Mini makes setting up the ES-Go ridiculously easy, as it has all the right clips and holes already in place. As this is a simple pickup system it does not have built-in volume controls so Taylor have also created the V-Cable that allows you to control the volume. You can, of course, use any type of 1/4-inch instrument cable and rely on your own playing to control the volume.
