Product Description

The Taylor GS Mini acoustic guitar was designed to deliver a sound that far exceeds its small stature. Size-wise, the Taylor GS Mini is the next-to-smallest in the Taylor family: the Taylor Baby is a touch smaller than the GS Mini, while the Big Baby is just a touch larger. The GS mini is no middle child, however -- it's an instrument with a distinctive voice that you'd never describe as "miniature." It's a go-anywhere instrument that you may find just as useful in the studio as you do in informal live situations.

Want to hear the GS Mini for yourself? Check it out in this exclusive zZounds video:

Quality Tonewoods and Taylor Craftsmanship

The Taylor GS Mini has a solid Sitka spruce top that yields a bright tone rich in sparkling overtones. The back and sides are made out of strong, durable layered sapele. The sapele neck has a slightly shorter 23.5-inch scale, and is fitted with a true ebony fingerboard. The neck is a proprietary Taylor NT neck, which is milled along with the neck pocket in an completely unique way. By utilizing spacers fitting into precision-milled pockets, the guitar neck is able to adapt better to microscopic changes and warpings that naturally occur in all wood over time, due to factors like humidity and temperature change. Additionally, this means that your Taylor guitar's neck will be more precisely adjustable throughout its whole life, and can be restored to its original setup specifications, or your tastes, at any time.

Nothing Small About The Sound

The GS Mini's rounded-back body has a depth of 4.4375 inches, which plays a major factor in the surprisingly powerful voice and throw this guitar has. Don't expect that it will lack low-end oomph, though -- it has plenty. It also has a 20-fret neck, with open frets up through the 14th. The fretboard is bedecked with classic 5mm dot inlays, while high-quality die-cast chrome tuners keep your intonation tight. A handsome tortoise pickguard does what it's supposed to do and looks great.

Electrifies Easily

Taylor's innovation doesn't stop with acoustic guitars. The GS Mini Mahogany is ready for you to add one of Taylor's ES-Go pickup systems with the simple click of a clip. Sold separately, the ES-Go is a totally proprietary magnetic soundhole pickup that grew out of Taylor's much celebrated original Expression System. If you're thinking about plugging your GS Mini in, you're also going to probably want to get a V-Cable: a professional-grade quarter-inch instrument cable with a built-in volume control. This brilliant configuration allows you to add a fully functional pickup to the GS Mini when you want, but keep your true acoustic otherwise free of hardware or control knobs.

- Layered sapele back and sides

- Easy add-on of Taylor ES-Go pickup system and Taylor V-Cable
- Sapele Neck and Heel

Product Description

The Taylor GS Mini was designed to be the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go -- or stay. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's award-winning GS body shape, the GS Mini scales things down without skimping on sound, packing a lot of tone into a comfortable, portable size and giving you a guitar that's incredibly fun to play. With Taylor's patented NT neck, you'll always enjoy signature Taylor intonation and playability. So, wherever you end up, whether you're on tour or on the porch, the Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar is always ready to play. Now shipping in limited quantities.

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

Developed exclusively for the Taylor GS Mini, the ES-Go is a magnetic 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 Taylor GS Mini can be plugged into an acoustic amp, PA system or recording device for a great amplified acoustic sound. Click the images below to view installation details.

Taylor GS Mini Acoustic: Built-in volume control on your cable.

When the ES-Go pickup is installed, the GS Mini works with any type of -inch instrument cable. The guitar itself has no onboard controls, but the specially designed Taylor V-Cable features a built-in master volume control, which enables you to adjust your volume level.

Taylor GS Mini Acoustic: An iPhone audio interface & Taylor EQ app let you record from anywhere.

The Sonoma Wire Works GuitarJack gives players a great tool for recording on the fly. The GuitarJack is a plug-in interface between a guitar (with a pickup) and an iPhone (3G or 3GS) or iPod Touch. Through the Sonoma Wire Works app FourTrack, players can record multiple tracks. Taylor also worked with Sonoma to develop a free Taylor EQ app that features several Taylor EQ presets, including one for the Tatkir GS Mini.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Taylor GS Mini"
Overall: I'm a beginning guitar player. I have short fingers so I wanted a guitar where I would be able to reach the notes and chords. i have the Baby Taylor which is perfect for that, but the GS Mini has a much better sound. I love this guitar. Not much for the WOW factor, but is just a nice looking, great sounding, guitar.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. ""Taylor knocks it out of the park""
Sound: I love this guitar. Everything was as advertised, and playable right out of the box. I have an injured left shoulder, and this size guitar makes playing a pleasure again. Once you pickup this guitar and start playing it is difficult to put it down. Taylor sure done this right. I really love this guitar. Feature: size overall, as i have small hands. The selected woods have a nice clear sound, and may i add volume. Manufacturer Support: No problems as of yet, but knowing the Taylor people i don't think there will be any problems. Overall: Yes i would replace it.
Style of Music: blues,country,christian,folk
