Taylor Guitars GS Mini-e Koa Steel String Acoustic Guitar New
Taylor’s GS Mini has been Gryphon’s best-selling guitar for several years running and no other model even comes close. Why? Simply because this little powerhouse does so many different things so well. It’s a travel guitar that doubles as a kids’ guitar which can also serve as a songwriter’s guitar or a couch companion you always want to have handy. Want a modern-day parlor guitar you can plug in to fill a stadium? A GS Mini with its standard pickup can do that.
The GS Mini is available in a number of acoustic or acoustic-electric configurations. The tops are all made of solid tonewoods and include spruce, mahogany or koa. The back and sides are made of layered tonewoods and include sapele, koa, rosewood. They all have different tonal personalities but the finger-friendly 23 1/2 inch scale and easy string action are consistent throughout the line.
This acoustic-electric example has a solid koa top and layered koa back and sides. It’s fitted with Taylor’s ES-B pickup with a built-in tuner. The koa top gives this guitar a sweet, mellow tone with a strong midrange. And by the way, the photos on our website show the actual guitar listed. These are not stock photos so the wood grain you see is what your GS Mini will look like. All GS Minis include a well-padded gig bag with backpack straps.
