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 Acoustic Guitar 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. Includes gig bag.

  • Little guitar, big sound

    As reviewed by Bob Hebee on 8/26/2013

    I picked up this guitar to bring on vacation and take to the boat. I am lucky as I live within 30 miles of two Guitar Center Stores. I played the spruce top, mahogany top and a rosewood backed model at Sam Ash. The spruce top model that I ended up purchasing was the first one I played at the Guitar Center in my town. So much for doing my guitar testing tour. I was torn between the spruce and mahogany because of other reviews and played both for a long while. I even had one of the sales guys play both so I could listen from the front. The sound is definitely different and like everything, it comes down to personal preference. The mahogany has a more controlled sound and is kind of "Martin sounding". I have a Taylor 310CE and love that bright, big Taylor sound. That made the difference for me. I chose the spruce top model. I have had the guitar for a week now and can't put it down. The set up was perfect right from the store and this guitar really stays in tune. The neck is extremely comfortable and the smaller size really makes it easier and fun to play. I highly recommend this guitar.

  • Iplay it for pleasure

    As reviewed by Edward Arnold on 2/5/2013

    I am not a muscian. I play the guitar for pleasure and although I have excellent equipment, I have no desire to perform or write songs. I enjoy sitting on the couch, drinking beer, and playing guitar. I went to Guitar Center to look at the new Taylor GS Mini acoustic guitar. The purpose for the guitar is for my ten year-old daughter. She needs something smaller and the new Taylor is not a baby Taylor. I played four songs, "Oh Happy Day", "Here Comes the Sun", "You Were Always on My Mind" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door". The guitar sounded great but to be fair, I also played the same songs on the Baby Martin. To be honest, the Baby Martin had a crisper, clearer more pure sound. However, the Taylor GS Mini sounded unique. The Taylor GS Mini had a ... growl! It could be this particular one, all guitars are slightly different, or it could be the model in general. After much careful thought, I purchased the Taylor. I have owned it for 20 months and I have not tired of it yet. I own this Taylor, a Martin HD-28 purchased in 1994, and a Les Paul Studio purchased in 2009. I tend to play the Taylor GS Mini more often than the other two combined. My two children like the sound of the Taylor better than my Martin HD 28. I kept asking my daughter why she likes the sound better. She phrased her answer strangely. "The new guitar sounds mad (angry). It has an attitude!" Music critics! The kids are only eight and twelve years-old ... what do they know?

  • Perfect Pinker

    As reviewed by ROBERT KARSTEIN on 12/23/2012

    Perfect size for your lap. I put on Martin SP extra lights, shaved a little off the bottom of the saddle and adjusted the truss rod. Now she plays like my electrics. Another home run from Taylor!
