Taylor

Description

There's something undeniably inviting about the Taylor GS Mini bass. It's built with a scaled-down size but playing just a few notes reveals the impressive voice of a full-size instrument. That mix of portability and musicality has proven to be a winning combination that fits into many scenarios, from the couch or the campfire to the concert hall. It's not too big, it's not too precious and it's not too expensive. The GS Mini-e bass incorporates a proprietary string set developed by D’Addario, along with a Taylor-patented dual-prong bridge pin that was designed to optimize the string break angle and produce pleasing bass notes with the shorter scale length. The GS Mini-e Bass is equipped with ES-B electronics featuring an onboard preamp with tone and volume controls and built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication. The ES-B pickup system consists of Taylor's world-class ES2 pickup fine-tuned for bass strings, controlled by an ES-B preamp. Additional appointments include GS Mini-e Bass tuners in chrome, a 1-11/16" nut width, 4mm Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays and 3-ring rosette.
