The GS Mini is one of our best selling guitars and this Mahogany version gives a really warm and mellow sound, not being too boomy or bright.
Because of it's small size and shorter scale, this is a really comfortable guitar to play; whether you're sat on the sofa at home, on stage or using it as a travel guitar. It's a full sized guitar and suitable no matter your age and height, but with the shorter scale length it's also easy to play for young guitarists.
Being a smaller version of the Grand Symphony (which is where the "GS" part of the GS Mini name comes from), the guitar has a narrow waist which makes it comfortable to sit with, but a wide lower bout so the guitar has a ton of depth, bass and volume, creating a really full sound.
With this version being mahogany, the mid range of the guitar is really pronounced giving the guitar a very warm and mellow tone. It isn't typically as powerful as the Rosewood version and has less overtones, making the guitar a nice accompaniment to people with a less powerful or quieter singing voice, and a little easier to record.
"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 favourite 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:
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!"
