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

The Taylor GS Mini is the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go — or stay. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's Grand Symphony body shape, the Mini scales things down without skimping on sound, packing lots of tone into a comfortable size and giving you a guitar that's incredibly fun to play.

Compared to the Baby Taylor, the GS Mini has a bigger, deeper body, longer scale length, and a bigger soundhole, which together yield incredible volume and a level of tonal richness that’s comparable to a full-scale guitar without compromising portability. Think of it as a modern-day parlor guitar, perfect for playing around the house but also built to fit an active lifestyle, yet with a voice that’s big enough to be a player’s primary guitar.

The Taylor GS Mini features a solid Sitka spruce top with layered sapele back and sides. The GS Mini is constructed with X-bracing featuring their patented relief rout. This is Taylor’s original X pattern, featuring scalloped braces. The “X” provides a continuous flow of strength from the upper bout to the lower bout, which provides rigidity in spite of the soundhole’s location in the middle of the soundboard. The patented relief rout is a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top. This groove is similar in function to the re-curve on a violin — it “loosens up” the edges of the top, generating extra flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity. Taylor first began using this groove in 2002. The result is increased bass and volume with a balanced tone.

The GS Mini also features Taylor’s patented NT neck and other enhanced aesthetic details, including an inlaid rosette, top purfling, and a pickguard. The Taylor GS Mini is also prefitted for a proprietary magnetic soundhole pickup, the Taylor ES-Go, which can be purchased as an after-market add-on and can easily be installed by anyone in minutes. Includes Taylor GS Mini Hardbag.

    Comments about Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar:

    The GS mini is the perfect traveling piece. It's a fun pint sized portable guitar. The guitar has a great and high performing compromise or volume, clarity, and depth at an affordable price Range. My only gripe is the lack of a full length neck, but the included deluxe padded gig bag compensates nicely.

      The GS Mini has a Big sound for a smaller size guitar! It travels well, plays and sounds sweet for a more inexpensive guitar. I would recommend this guitar from a beginner to a seasoned musician.
