Taylor

Designed for the Mini, this add-on pickup
is a snap to install.

Developed exclusively for the Taylor Mini and based on Taylor's Expression System technology, the ES-Go is a magnetic, stacked-humbucking soundhole pickup that anyone can easily add to their Mini without the help of a guitar technician. All you need is a screwdriver and a few minutes. Once the ES-Go pickup is in place, the GS Mini can be plugged into an acoustic amp, PA system or recording device for a great amplified acoustic sound.

        Comments about Taylor ES-Go Pick Up:

        I cant believe the noise this thing makes. I tried different outlets and other locations. I called Taylor and they wanted to charge me 27 bones plus shipping to send me the ground kit. I read that people were getting it for free. Good bye Taylor. Forever.

          Comments about Taylor ES-Go Pick Up:

          I bought the GS-Mini along with the ES-Go a week ago. I was prepared for some hum and buzz in the pickup (which I knew I could fix with a grounding kit) but I was not prepared for the poor sound. There's a sharp drop off at 4k which makes the guitar sound like a cheap electric.

          I compared it to my son's much cheaper guitar which came with a built in pickup and it blew the ES-Go out of the water. Check the images below to see a comparison done with no EQ or effects.

          I love my GS Mini guitar but would not recommend the ES-Go pickup to anyone.

          Didn't expect this from Taylor.

          By dockhound

          Comments about Taylor ES-Go Pick Up:

          In all fairness, if you want a pickup to bang around with a garage band, this will probably work just fine for you, especially if you use a pre-amp or a pedal with a gain control. It is certainly easy to install. You should get a string grounding setup from Taylor before you install the pickup, so you can do the entire installation at one time. If you are looking for a recording pickup, or play in quiet venues, this won't do it!
          Easy installation, if that what is important. This is a passive single-coil pickup. It is very susceptible to noise and has very little output gain, which make the overall signal-to-noise ratio very poor. Taylor makes an add-on string grounding system which eliminates most of the 60Hz hum that the pickup has in all except the most prestine environments, but the amp gain has to be turned up so high that there is still a bunch of noise produced.
          The pickup and attached connector seem to be made and assembled well. Noting the comments in the Features rating, I would have expected Taylor to come up with a much better product for their exceptional guitar!
          As noted above.

          Excessive hum

          By Curtis Notestine

          from Beavercreek Ohio

          Comments about Taylor ES-Go Pick Up:

          I was really hoping for a great value and good quality.
          As far as features go, the acoustic pickup doesn't need many. You can purchast the Taylor V-cable if you want volume control.
          There is excessive hum with the ES-Go. I consider the ES-Go unusable for this reason.
          If it didn't have the noise problem, this would be a great value. C'mon Taylor, I know you can fix this.
