Taylor is known for their amazing acoustic guitar craftsmanship. No one expected them to spend too much time making a bass, let alone a miniature sized one. But low and behold, they did just that and it came out awesome. Featuring a compact bass design, bass tailored Taylor appointments, and plug and play electronics, the GS Mini-e Maple Bass is great for guitar players looking to mess around or young bassists who are just starting out.

Compact Bass Design
Measuring roughly 10" shorter than your typical bass, the 23.5" scale length GS Mini-e Maple Bass produces powerful, natural-sounding bass notes with its Sitka spruce top. Like the other GS Mini models, it's smooth and easy to play, but gives you the low notes you want from a bass guitar. You can use it to learn bass, to add some acoustic flare to an impromptu jam session, or to advance your songwriting prowess. A 20-fret West African ebony fingerboard sits on a sapele neck, designed to give you a comfortable playing experience.

Bass Tailored Taylor Appointments
Speaking of strings, a bass of this nature can't use just any stings. That's why Taylor teamed up with D'Addario to create specially-designed, custom nylon-core strings with phosphor bronze wrap wire. These strings offer great tone, but enough flexibility to make the playing experience enjoyable for anyone. Taylor also came up with a dual pronged patented bridge pin design for this model, to assure the strings can be quickly and efficiently replaced, but without compromising the strength of their hold. Taylor also threw in die-cast chrome tuners, a tortoise pickguard and a three ring rosette.

Plug and Play Electronics
To cap it all off, the GS Mini-e Maple Bass can be amplified to share its sweet low-end sound with a larger audience. Taylor's ES-B electronics system is featured in this instrument, making use of the Taylor Expression System 2 Piezo design elements. Coupled with an onboard preamp and built-in digital chromatic tuner with LED display, the ES-B will capture all the Mini-e bass sound and let you customize it with volume and tone controls. This acoustic mini bass really gives you bang for your buck.

A marvelous invention


I was surprised that despite its size it sounded better than everything in the store. The short scale is MUCH easier to play and navigate. The only sacrifice is slightly looser strings that make it hard to play fast unless you get close to the bridge. I highly recommend the maple version, both are great but the tones are notably more melodic, slightly brighter which I prefer
