The Taylor GS Mini was designed to offer the same, great tone and dynamic range of a Grand Symphony, but in a more compact and easily transportable body. Don't let the size fool you though. The Taylor GS Mini-e Mahogany is built to Taylor's uncompromisingly high-standards of quality and can more than hold its own against larger models.
The top wood is built using Solid Tropical Mahogany, a dense tonewood that delivers a very bright and punchy sound. The Mahogany top gives a short and snappy tone to the guitar but throughout its life can develop into an incredibly warm and natural soundboard. It is well suited to players who are looking for a tone with plenty of individuality and attitude.
The back and sides are constructed from Sapele laminate, which is composed of a filler layer between an interior and exterior layer of Sapele laminate. The beauty of employing laminate material in the GS Mini means that it is much more resilient than a solid tonewood when dealing with changes in humidity, making it an excellent guitar to take on your travels.
In addition to the natural sound projection abilities of the tonewoods, the guitar comes with Taylor's ES-2 electronics system for times when you wish to play through an amplifier. The ES-2 is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual response elements for each string. It features a built-in preamp to give the signal a boost, if necessary, and the same active controls for tone and volume that are on the full ES in more expensive models. These are discreetly tucked away so that they don't interfere with your playing, but are there for you to mold your sound to suit your playing needs.
The Taylor GS Mini-e QS is a beautifully designed little powerhouse that is ready to play straight out of the bag, wherever you are!
