Overall: I recently bought my beautiful gs mini koa e from zzounds. This guitar packs an amazing punch for a slightly smaller bodied guitar and that gorgeous grain contrast turns heads everywhere I take it. You will not regret purchasing this guitar. Also I'd like to mention that this is the second Taylor guitar I have purchased from zZounds. Both are my guitars were more stunning than I anticipated when I ordered them. zZounds does an amazing job of hooking you up with the best they have and setting it up so it plays like butter right out of the box. And the pay as you play is a great way to spread out your payments a little to make it more affordable up front. My two guitars daily kindle a passion to live my music and drive harder and zZounds made that happens for me. Feeling very Blessed.

Overall: I haven’t owned a guitar for around 5 years and decided to start playing again. I’ve been eyeing the GS Mini Koa for a couple of years now, and finally decided to “pull the trigger”.My guitar arrived a couple of days ago, and I was impressed immediately upon opening the box. Of course, all of these Koas are unique, but mine is particularly beautiful. And the action is simply the best I’ve ever experienced!It’s taking me a little while to get used to playing again, but it’s an absolute pleasure with this guitar. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. And zZounds service was #1!

Overall: This is the Taylor to get if you're looking for a great gig / busking / travel guitar. The electronics on this model are nice ( never liked the Taylor expression system) and has an accurate built in tuner. ( somewhat like the Martin LX!E). I gig out professionally often . This guitar is very functional , well made, easy to play, stays in tune, looks great, has a very nice protective gig bag. IF this is going to be either your first guitar, take along on trips guitar, or professional gig out guitar, just get it ! Taylor also has other GS Mini models if Koa is not your choice. My other choice ( I own ) is the Martin Dred Jr. All wood , sounds great, dependable, and affordable for a working musician. Can't go wrong with either one ( IMO )

Overall: This guitar far exceeded my expectations. Straight from the box the wood grain was magnificent. The workmanship was top notch. It was well set up upon arrival. The fretboard is perfect size for smaller hands. The sound is fantastic with a nice bass end and a crisp top end but great mellow under tones. It is definitely a keeper. I topped mine off with a hard side case for the airline gorillas. I only wish they had a fancier version and it would be perfect in every way. Going aftermarket with custom inlay and gold tuners and it will be perfection.
