Taylor

Description

The Taylor GS Mini-e mahogany acoustic-electric guitar pairs an inviting, scaled-down body with the rich voice of a full-sized guitar. The shorter 23-1/2" scale length makes forming chords a breeze, yet gives the instrument plenty of snap and tuning stability for a rewarding playing experience. Its top is made of mahogany, which produces a natural compression that yields more “roll-in” to a note. Mahogany delivers strong fundamentals with clear and direct focus, and the compression evens out a lively attack for a more linear response. The arched back generates more sound from the smaller body size, and using layered wood for the back and sides creates a sturdy yet receptive platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is also less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice if you travel with your instrument or require more durability.

The GS Mini-e includes the Taylor Expression System Basic (ES-B) pickup, which incorporates piezo design elements from the 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, plus a tone-sculpting 3-band EQ. Powered by a 9-volt battery, the ES-B conserves battery life using a standard on/off system that will automatically turn off if left on over 3 minutes. Additional appointments to the GS Mini-e include a tropical mahogany neck, chrome tuners with chrome buttons and a Nubone nut. Comes with a Taylor structured gig bag.
