Taylor GS Mini-e Mahogany
"I sat on my couch, put the GS Mini in my lap, and experienced the strangest feeling: total comfort. ...sound like a full-size guitar. However lightly or hard I strummed the guitar, it matched my effort with equal volume" - Nicole Solis, Acoustic Guitar
The Taylor GS Mini has amassed an enormous fan base of happy owners, and the demand continues to grow. There’s something undeniably inviting about the Mini’s scaled-down size, yet a single strum reveals the impressive voice of a full-size guitar. That mix of portability and musicality has proven to be a winning combination that fits into so many scenarios in life, from the couch to the campfire to the concert hall, as we like to say. It’s not too big, it’s not too precious, and it’s not too expensive, and that broad-based accessibility has given it a resounding universal appeal, not to mention a built-in fun factor. The shorter 23-1/2-inch scale length makes forming chords a breeze.
This premium edition of Taylor’s standard mahogany-top GS Mini comes equipped for live performance with the addition of Taylor’s Expression System 2® pickup, including onboard tone and volume control knobs. Between the compact size and full-voiced tone and projection, players at every level love having one within arm’s reach wherever they may be — whether on the go or on the couch. The hardwood mahogany top yields a meaty, punchy response that lively pickers and strummers will love. Comes in a GS Mini hard bag.
GS Mini - A scaled-down GS that’s anything but small.
Solid Tropical Mahogany top - The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
Layered Sapele back and sides - Layered wood construction is used to offer attractive, durable and affordable models.
Expression System® 2 pickup - The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”- grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
