What Reidys say...

'One of the finest travel guitars we have ever played the GS Mini, packs a huge sound in a diminutive package. It has a huge dynamic range from a delicate whisper to a mighty roar! Unlike many other travel guitars it has great intonation and stability... it plays with the same great action, tone and playability full size Taylor guitars are famous for!


The GS Mini is perfect suited for playing in the lounge or taking to jam sessions... it comes with a robust deluxe padded gig bag making it ideal for camping trips and holidays. The guitar is also perfect for younger players because of the shorter scale and smaller body (The shorter scale means that the frets are closer together and chords will be a little less of a stretch).


The GS Mini is a favorite of many performers and has been used by Damon Albarn,
The Script, One Direction and many more!



The Guitar has won a plethora of awards:

Product of the Year The Music & Sound Retailer, Winter NAMM 2011

Guitarist's Choice Guitarist (UK) magazine

Editors' Pick Award Guitar Player magazine

Gold Medal, Player's Choice Awards ("Travel Guitar") Acoustic Guitar magazine

Platinum Award for Quality and Design Guitar World magazine'


Like all Taylor guitars the GS Mini comes with a peerless setup and
plays amazingly well all over the neck. Taylor believe so much in the
quality of their guitars that they offer a 12 year warranty if you
register your guitar!


Richard Moss, Reidys Acoustic Specialist





What Taylor say...


This alluring all-koa version of the GS Mini pairs a solid koa top with layered koa back and sides, serving up an inspiring blend of looks, feel and sound. The compact Mini’s scaled-down design delivers ultra-portability for players on the go and couch-friendly comfort for picking at home, while the rich, full voice belies its size. Our patented neck design guarantees signature Taylor playability, and the shorter 23.5-inch scale length makes forming a chords a breeze. Onboard ES-B electronics invite you to plug in whenever you're ready, and feature a convenient built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication.




From the couch to the campfire to the concert hall, the new GS Mini promises big fun for everyone. Introducing a small-size guitar with a full size sound.




Taylor GS Mini-e Koa







Shape: GS Mini



Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's Grand Symphony, the GS Mini scales things down without skimping on

sound packing a ton of tone into a comfortable, full-voiced, travel-friendly guitar.









Top: Hawaiian Koa





A hardwood top such as koa produces a natural compression, so there tends to be more of a controlled, sustaining

“roll-in” effect to a note. An all-koa guitar will produce strong fundamental focus, with a splash of top-end

shimmer.
