Taylor GS Mini Series

Taylor's GS Minis are small guitars with a big voice, a great look, and all the quality you'd expect to find in a Taylor. They are very comfortable guitars to hold and to play and, thanks to scalloped braced solid tops with Taylor’s relief-cut around the top's inner perimeter, they’ve got a sound that belies their small size.

At 14.25" wide, the body is two inches narrower than a GS, but not as small as the Baby Taylor. The neck has a 23.5" scale and round-profile carve with a standard width nut (1-11/16"); ebony fingerboard and bridge. The standard GS Mini is pick-up ready for the ES Go soundhole pickup, while the Mini-e versions are upgraded with the popular ES-B pickup/preamp system. These guitars are a perfect stage companion, intimate couch pickers, travel-mates, and all around do-everything-well instruments.

The Taylor GS Mini-e Bass is truly the definition of fun. The bass is identical in dimensions to the 6 string, so if you’re familiar with the Mini you already know what the 4 string version is all about. Custom Mini bass tuning machines and custom designed acoustic bass bridgepins. The pickup is Taylor’s ES-B unit with on board volume and tone controls and built-in tuner. With its super short scale and low tension custom nylon-core strings, the GS Mini-e Bass is effortless to play, and puts out a whole lotta tone.

Although GS Minis are good travel guitars, thanks to their smaller size and compact case, we suspect they will get more use at home than on the road!
