      Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar (H05519)

Designed to be the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go — or stay.

From the couch to the campfire to the concert hall, the GS Mini promises big fun for everyone. 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 straight and stable 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 GS Mini is always ready to play.

The GS Mini truly sounds like a full-size guitar, and it's not just the volume you'll notice when you strum your 1st chord, but also the depth and richness of tone. The Mini acoustic has a deeper body, a bigger top, and a longer scale than a Baby Taylor. The tone is also enhanced by a full-sized 4"-diameter soundhole and a braceless arched back. The Mini also has the look of a "real" guitar with an inlaid rosette, pickguard, and inlaid purfling lines in the top. Its ultra-portable size makes it a great travel guitar. You can even put it in the overhead compartment of a plane. The Mini also makes an inspiring student guitar for smaller-sized musicians. Comes with a GS Mini hard bag.

  • most fun Guitar I have ever played

    As reviewed by Tim Sattler on 2/1/2011

    I have played guitar for over 50 years. This is one of the finest guitars I have played. For the money it's the best. I love it.

  • Great addition to the family

    As reviewed by John Eckstein on 3/19/2011

    I now have five Taylor Guitars- 1991 512, 1998 555, and a 2009 T-5 are the higher end guitars and are all wonderful. I bought a Baby Taylor in 1996 when they first came out, and while I have enjoyed having a guitar that portable and convenient, I have always had some problems with the intonation. So, when I first read about the Mini GS, I thought it would be be the answer to those problems. The Mini-GS certainly does have good intonation, but is really a lot more than an improved Baby. It is considerably larger- actually close in size and identical in depth to the 512. Thus it is actually nowhere near as portable as the Baby T. In every other way, though, it is very much a satisfying good sounding guitar, comparable to a more expensive full size guitar. The neck, fret work, set-up and intonation are all excellent. Perhaps due to the medium strings, it has a very full sound- not as complex as the 512, but really very full and balanced sound. I got the es-go pickup separately. As advertised it goes in very easily and sounds great (I put it through a Baggs Para-Acoustic DI into a Fender Acoustonic Jr.). So- I do not think this is a great tiny guitar- it is just not that small. But for a relatively cheap, sturdy guitar, that is not too big and that sounds and plays like a Taylor, the is really a remarkable instrument.

  • Best guitar I've owed!

    As reviewed by DANIEL GOLDSTEIN on 10/3/2011

    I play a variety of instruments as a hobby and for general catharsis. I first purchased a full-sized yamaha acoustic. I loved the sound, but the body of the guitar was uncomfortable and I was developing tendonitis in my arm from straining to reach. I realize some discomfort is a necessary part of learning most things, but the persistent pain forced me to quit for about a year. I purchased an inexpensive 1/2-sized guitar for my son to learn on, and I found it to be the most comfortable and fun to play; however, it lacks tone. To find the happy medium, I purchased the Taylor Big Baby since it was a bit smaller, but still had excellent sound for it's size and price. A hint of the pain returned messing with the Big Baby, and I heard about the GS mini. After numerous visits to my local GuitarCenter, they finally had one in stock to try out. The shorter neck and thinner body make it significantly more comfortable for my stature. Also, the quality of sound is amazing. I debate getting the ES pickup, since the reviews are mixed. However, after several months of playing the GS, I only have joy and thanks to Taylor for putting out such a terrific instrument.
