The Taylor GS Mini Mahogany is the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go — or stay. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's Grand Sypmhony 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 Mahogany 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 Mahogany features a solid tropical mahogany top with layered sapele back and sides. The mahogany top delievers a rootsier sound than a spruce top. The GS Mini Mahogany 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 Mahogany 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 Mahogany 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.

Great little guitar, with big sound


I have to say I doubted what this guitar would pull off, and based on reviews decided to take the plunge. I've done nothing but love it. It sits near the couch in my living room for anytime use. Projects clear full sound, but not loud. I travel for work a lot, and am completely comfortable using in a hotel room, without disturbing the next room over. What a great find!




Tiny with a Body!


Great little guitar with enough bass to keep any tone snob satisfied, plus like every Taylor it plays well out of the box. If you are a kid or need a guitar that is a smaller body this is a great starting point. *Hands on review by Christopher M. from store 57 in Indianapolis.
