Overview

There's something undeniably inviting about the Taylor GS Mini's scaled-down size, yet a single strum reveals the impressive voice of a full-size guitar. That mix of portability and musicality has proven to be a winning combination that fits into so many scenarios in life, from the couch to the campfire to the concert hall. It's not too big. It's not too precious. It's not too expensive. That broad-based accessibility has given it a resounding universal appeal, not to mention a built-in fun factor. The shorter 23-1/2 in. scale length makes forming chords a breeze yet gives the instrument plenty of snap and tuning stability for a rewarding playing experience. The acoustic-electric versions, like this GS Mini-e Walnut Acoustic-Electric, come with Taylor's reliable ES-B electronics. All GS-Mini models include a durable hard bag built by Taylor for the optimal fit.

Tonewoods
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating stringenergy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. The GS Mini-e Walnut Acoustic-Electric features Sitka spruce for the top, the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. The arched back of the guitar generates more sound from a small-bodied instrument, and using layered wood back and sides create a sturdy yet receptive platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is also less succeptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.

Electronics
The GS Mini-e Walnut is amplified via the Expression System Basic (ES-B) system, which incorporates piezo design elements from the flagship Taylor ES2 system. It's powered by an onboard preamp that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner, an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, and Tone and Volume controls. The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium (CR2032) batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use. The ES-B conserves battery life using a standard on/off system that will automatically turn off if left on over 3 minutes. A low battery indicator on the LED display (located on the preamp circuit board) will display an “L” when the battery reaches 4.5 volts.

The Taylor Difference
What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

Comments about Taylor GS Mini Series GS Mini-e Walnut Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The Taylor GS mini comes out of tune each time I play a song that requires a capo. I've gone through 5 capos to make sure that the capo was not the problem. I've also brought it in for repair and everything on the guitar looked as it should. I was told that the problem had to do with the shorter neck of this guitar. Therefore it's impossible to play out with this guitar as it needs to be retuned between capoed songs. I just hung up with Taylor customer service and was told "I don't know what to tell you, you just have to retune it." Which is unacceptable when playing out in public.

    I am a starter musician, I have been completely encapsulated in guitar since my brother gave me my first acoustic guitar. But this guitar, I can't even describe in words how amazing it sounds. I pick it up and start jamming and I just close my eyes and get taken away into sound of this thing. 100% reccomend
