Product Description

Released for Fall 2013, this limited-edition model of Taylor's popular GS Mini guitar gets upgraded with gorgeous Indian rosewood laminate back and sides. A classic acoustic guitar tonewood, rosewood delivers deep lows and sparkling highs with a slightly scooped midrange, which pairs with the GS Mini's solid Sitka spruce top to create that big Taylor sound and playing experience. You won't believe the volume that comes from the parlor-sized GS Mini Rosewood!

Small in Size, Not in Sound

Like all Taylor GS Minis, the GS Mini Rosewood LTD acoustic guitar delivers Taylor Grand Symphony performance in a smaller size. This 23.5"-scale instrument has a rounded back and body depth of 4 7/16" inches. Larger than a 3/4-size Baby Taylor, but smaller than the Big Baby, the GS Mini delivers sound that far exceeds its small stature. Don't expect that it will lack low-end oomph -- 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.

Quality Tonewoods and Taylor Craftsmanship on a Smaller Scale

This limited-edition Taylor GS Mini pairs its rosewood laminate back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, yielding a bright tone rich in sparkling overtones. The 23.5-inch scale sapele neck is a proprietary Taylor NT design, 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 GS Mini'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. In true Taylor fashion, the GS Mini's neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard.

Electrifies Easily: Just Add the ES-Go Pickup System

Taylor's innovation doesn't stop with acoustic guitars. The GS Mini Rosewood 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 great, fully-functional pickup to the GS Mini when you want, but keep your true acoustic otherwise free of hardware or control knobs.

- Rosewood laminate back and sides
- Sitka spruce top
- Easy add-on of Taylor ES-Go pickup system and Taylor V-Cable
- Sapele Neck and Heel
- Taylor X-Bracing with Relief Rout
- Ebony Fretboard

The accolades keep coming for the mighty GS Mini as it continues to redefine what a small-bodied guitar can be. A big sound, a real Taylor playing experience, and a do-it-yourself add-on pickup option already make it hard to resist, but Taylor thought they'd up the ante with some beautiful wood veneer options, too. The Taylor GS-Mini-RW LTD Acoustic Guitar (with Gig Bag) features beautiful layered Rosewood back and sides.

4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Taylor GS Mini in Rosewood"
Overall: For a 23 1/2" scale guitar if you close your eyes and listen, you wouldn't be able to tell. It sounds that good, really. The craftsmanship is typical top notch Taylor even though this is made in Mexico. The laminated Rosewood back and sides are gorgeous. I've been playing for 30 years now and I must say this guitar is really a Gem! For $550, it's the deal of a lifetime. The next purchase for me is when they start making this model with a cutaway!
