Compact and lightweight, the GS Mini e Koa bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that's ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of Taylor's GS Mini family, this four-string bass creates impressive natural-sounding bass notes. Part of the magic is the design from master guitar builder Andy Powers who designed the bass using custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with D'Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it).
Together with Taylor's patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And with the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone's hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players to guitarists craving a couch-friendly option and a new tool of inspiration.
It's an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.
