OVERVIEW

A highly portable body with the beautiful woodgrain and tone of Hawiian koa.

Hawaiian koa' rich and earthy complexion brings an exotic look to one of Taylor' most popular and portable guitars on this limited edition GS Mini. The all-koa model features a pickguard-free top of solid Hawaiian koa, layered koa back and sides, plus an onboard ES-T pickup. The hardwood koa top will yield a focused response with a splash of extra top-end chime. Other standard GS Mini appointments include an all-matte finish, 5mm dot fretboard inlays, a 3-ring rosette, and chrome tuners. The guitar ships in a GS Mini hard bag.

Layered Koa
Like Taylor' other layered wood options, layered koa features an all-wood laminated construction, in this case with interior and exterior layers of beautifully-figured koa veneer separated by a middle core layer of poplar. Though the tonal properties of layered wood aren™t as complex as solid wood, the construction method enables us to conserve tonewood resources and offer attractive, durable instruments at a more inviting price. A solid spruce top and Taylor craftsmanship ensure a clear, balanced tonal response.

GS Mini
The award-winning GS Mini was designed to be the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go ” or stay. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's GS body shape, the Mini scales things down without skimping on sound, packing a ton of tone into a comfortable travel size and giving you a guitar that's full-voiced and incredibly fun to play. Think of the Mini as a modern-day parlor guitar, perfect for playing around the house but also built to fit an active lifestyle.

ES-T Electronics
The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual elements for each string. It features an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on the full ES. Featuring a custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response, the system is powered by a 9-volt battery, with a battery life LED power indicator (which is lit when the battery is being used). The pickup also has a Phase switch for feedback control, which is located on the preamp board inside the soundhole.

    Comments about Taylor GS Mini-e Koa FLTD Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    For weeks I searched all over and found what may have been one of the last Koa mini's online and it was well worth the wait. I almost purchased a Mahogany but I'm glad I waited. Right out of the box the action is perfect and the only change I made where the strings. I put a set of Martin MFX740 Flexible Core 92/8 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings and it sounds even better. I have been working on a few songs in Drop D tuning and WOW, what a full and rich sound from such a small guitar. And the best part is the small stripe of white Koa on mine. I haven't seen this anywhere and it just adds to the beauty of this guitar. One note, I haven't tried the electronics yet but will soon. I'm sure I will not be disappointed!

    Comments about Taylor GS Mini-e Koa FLTD Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I realize that most would prefer to use their full size at a concert. Im just saying that the sound is amazing and the workmanship is as well. If you had to switch to this one or you are a small woman and this feels comfortable, it would still look and sound amazing! The Koa wood is out of this world beautiful and Taylor also started using all of the black ebony woods for the fret boards, instead of only using the solid black. I received mine with some amazing lighter swirls in it. Beautiful, unique and I would always be able to recognize my own guitar from any other. Taylor is my new favorite luthier. They are not simply a manufacturer.
