OVERVIEW

Full-size sound in a compact, travel-friendly package.

There's something undeniably inviting about the Taylor GS 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. It's not too big, it's not too precious, and it's not too expensive. That broad-based accessibility has given it a resounding universal appeal, not to mention a built-in fun factor. The shorter 23-1/2 in. scale length makes forming chords a breeze, yet gives the instrument plenty of snap and tuning stability for a rewarding playing experience. Layered walnut back and sides add rich, organic aesthetics. All GS-Mini models include a durable hard bag that's perfect for players on-the-go.

Tonewoods
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Layered back and sides create a sturdy yet receptive platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.

Electronics
Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented, behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn't sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar's tone to come through clearly whether playing acousticly or plugged-in. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before while playing plugged-in. 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. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, bass and treble controls.

The Taylor Difference
What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

    Comments about Taylor GS Mini-e Walnut/Spruce Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a great little guitar. I did a lot of research before buying the Taylor and had been looking at Martin as well, but ended up choosing the Taylor. The Taylor was a little larger than the Martin travel sized models and had a better sound. This is a great guitar, you will not be disappointed.

      Comments about Taylor GS Mini-e Walnut/Spruce Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I really love this guitar. Guitar players inevitable end up with a room full of guitars but there is one that you keep next to your chair and constantly pick up and noodle around with. For me, this is the one I constantly reach for. It feels great in your hands, it sounds great, it's light - all the things you want in the guitar you play every day. This guitar is a home run...you can't go wrong!
