The Taylor GS Mini-E RW Rosewood is the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go — or stay. Inspired by the big, bold sound of the Taylor 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. Now offered with layered rosewood back and sides and onboard Taylor ES-T electronics.

If you liked the GS Mini before, you're going to LOVE this one. The Sitka spruce top is paired with layered Indian rosewood back and sides, which blends tone, aesthetic beauty, and durability, all at an appealing price point. Catering to the incredible sound of this fun-sized guitar, the GS Mini-E RW is supported by bracing that's specifically voiced for the GS Mini, and features the tone-enhancing Taylor Relief Rout which allows the top to vibrate more freely without sacrificing structural integrity. The ultra-playable short scale (23-1/2") sapele neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard that boasts 5mm dot inlays.

Although you can add an the aftermarket soundhole ES-Go pickup to the GS Mini models that are strictly acoustic, the GS Mini-E RW comes right out of the factory with onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics, which gives players more control over their sound and a more dynamic response.

The surprisingly big acoustic voice and the ability to plug in and play on demand makes the GS Mini-E RW a great choice if you're looking for a travel guitar to take with you on the road, or even just a smaller, more comfortable guitar to keep around the house. Comes with the full protection of a Taylor GS Mini hard bag.

  • Scaled Down Grand Symphony Body

This is my go to guitar. Definitely my favorite.

Awesome service and quality. The customer service was very attentive and it arrived very fast because I ordered it to ship to store. The guitar sounds so rich even though it's small, it's very loud and it feels very nice.

The ideal guitar for music therapists!

5

This little guitar is perfect for my music therapy work. It's got a warm, full sound but is compact, and easy to maneuver with on the job.

Love it!

5

I love this guitar! I have a full size Taylor, and it rivals it in sound quality. This guitar has a great bright sound, with nice depth to the low notes, too. I had a Little Martin for travel and couch-playing, but the sound on that guitar was a little thin. I upgraded to this GS Mini and it feels more like a "real" guitar! It IS a little bigger, so if size is a concern, I would consider the Baby Taylor, but it is still small enough for travel. It also feels like a more "full sized" fretboard; with a capo on the Little Martin I felt like my fingers were squeezed together on some chords (and I have average-sized female hands). I love playing this guitar! I recommend it to anyone who wants a smaller, thinner bodied instrument with true, full sound.

Fantastic Guitar!

5

The GS Mini from Taylor offers the best sound and playability in a small size guitar. A surprising amount of clarity and volume erupt from this little guitar. I challenge you to find a better sounding small size guitar.

Great Hobbyist Guitar

5

This guitar is a hobbyist's dream. It's compact and easy to play when just relaxing on the couch while still packing a good tone. For those that want quality but something easy to travel with, this is the guitar for you. The added free padded gig bag with Taylor logo makes for a sweet deal. This guitar works for all ages and levels of skill. The neck feels great and it's easy to get your arms around.

Little Hands? Little Guitar!

5

The only people who understand the plight of small hands are other people with small hands. Luckily, there is a smaller guitar for the small hand people, without compromise on tone and sound. Perhaps you are worried about space? Then this can serve as a faithful travel guitar. The shorter scale length is easily adaptable by any guitar player and certainly a blessing for the smaller hands!

Big sound, Small body

4

The Taylor GS Mini definitely packs a punch. You get quite a loud sound from such a small body. The Rosewood body adds a nice, warm, bassy tone to the guitar. Unlike other Taylor Minis, this one come with electronics so you can plug it into an amp and have fun.
