The Taylor GS Mini packs the voice of a full-size guitar into a fun, compact size at an affordable price.

Whether you're looking for a travel-friendly acoustic guitar that won't sacrifice in volume or tone, or maybe you just feel more comfortable with a smaller instrument to keep in the house, the Taylor GS Mini is the answer.

The epitome of "good things come in small packages", the Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar packs a rich, full-bodied acoustic voice into a scaled-down version of Taylor's bold-sounding Grand Symphony shape. Featuring layered sapele back and sides, a Sitka spruce soundboard and X-bracing with Taylor's tone-enhancing relief rout, the GS Mini is durable, affordable and offers a beautiful sound with more volume than you'd expect from a guitar of its size. Making the GS Mini incredibly fun and extremely comfortable to play, the smaller body is paired with a short 23.5"-scale sapele neck that sports a 20-fret ebony fingerboard. Other features include die-cast chrome tuning machines, an ebony bridge and a Nubone nut & saddle. Offering the portability of the gig bag with the protective properties of a hard case, a Taylor hard bag with adjustable backpack straps is included with your purchase of the GS Mini.

If you decide after you purchase the GS Mini that you want the plug-in-and-play flexibility of an onboard pickup, there is no need to fret (pun intended)! Taylor has designed an easy-to-install aftermarket, passive magnetic soundhole pickup that was specifically developed for the GS Mini: the ES-Go. No guitar technicians needed for installation. As long as you have a screwdriver, you can install this the ES-Go in minutes thanks to the pre-fitted brackets under the hood of the GS Mini. Control the volume of your plugged-in sound with ease by pairing the ES-Go pickup with the Taylor V-Cable that features a built-in volume control right on the cord. Taylor ES-Go and Taylor V-Cable sold separately.

        Comments about Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar:

        Everything you expect from Taylor and more. The smaller size makes this ideal for the couch, but is equally at home on stage. The tone is so much bigger than you'd expect from a guitar this size, and it's such a great easy playing instrument that I find it virtually impossible to put down. Excellent!

                  Taylor has been a benchmark in the acoustic guitar community for years. Famous in the high-end acoustic world, Taylor really knocked it out of the park with this GS Mini as they not only continued with fine Taylor craftsmanship but were also able to provide this fine quality instrument at a more affordable price point for the beginning to intermediate guitar enthusiast. The Sapele wood construciton s super rich and warmth providing a superior instrument at a fantastic price!

                    The famous Taylor tone and playability is an affordable smaller package, this guitar is ideal for travel and will fit comfortably in it's gig bag in the overhead on a plane. The after-market pickup makes it an easy choice for open-mic night. A great choice for anyone wanting a smaller size guitar.that has low action.
