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 body is compact but has a deepness of tone that is surprising for such a small instrument The guitar has a solid Mahogany top with a relief rout a feature normally found on much more expensive models. The rout is similar to that found on violins and means that the top can vibrate more freely.

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!

What Taylor say...

This premium edition of Taylor's standard mahogany-top GS Mini comes equipped for live performance with the addition of Taylor's pickup. Between the compact size and full-voiced tone and projection, players at every level love having one within arm's reach wherever they may be - whether on the go or on the couch. The hardwood mahogany top yields a meaty, punchy response that lively pickers and strummers will love. Comes in a GS Mini hard bag.

"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.


The GS Mini was designed to be the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go - or stay. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's award-winning GS body shape, the GS Mini scales things down without skimping on sound, packing a lot of tone into a comfortable, portable size and giving you a guitar that's incredibly fun to play.


With Taylor's patented NT® neck, you'll always enjoy signature Taylor intonation and playability. So, wherever you end up, whether you're on tour or on the porch, the GS Mini is always ready to play."

Sporting a rich, full voice that belies its compact size, the Mini is ultra-portable, yet just as comfortable to cradle in the comfort of your home, making it the ultimate modern-day parlor guitar. Featuring the Taylor NT® neck, the Mini comes with a solid mahogany top.

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

Top: Tropical Mahogany

As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won't yield as quick a response as spruce will. it will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It has having a woody, dry tone.

Body: Layered Sapele
