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.

Good little guitar. I ended up swapping it out for a Taylor 214 CE Deluxe. It would make a great travel guitar.

Best travel size guitar.

5

Great guitar in the mini segment. Sounds better than a lot of full sized entry to mid range guitars. It's the ideal guitar even if you like to travel with your guitar. Impeccable service by SamAsh.

Love my left-handed GS Mini that was hanging on the rack waiting for me...destiny! Sounds great, easy to play, handsome instrument, and have already taken it on a two plane rides for business travel. My new best friend! Ben, in Sales, was knowledgeable and friendly and made the easiest sale of the day. Following my purchase, he emailed and called me to ensure that I was happy. A nice, personal touch in this day of email/text/IM communication.

Amazing instrument especially for travel

Bought this to replace my traveler lefty and I have not been disappointed. Traveled with it from the east coast to the west coast and it was easy and fit in the overhead perfectly. Guitar has nice playability and nice sound. The standard string set are 13's which are a bit too heavy for me. I will be changing to 12's once this first set wears out. Neck was straight and finish on this guitar is amazing for such a low cost instrument. Very happy with this purchase. I would highly recommend. Only thing you might consider is the e version which included a pickup and tuner.
