The Taylor GS Mini was designed to offer the tone and dynamic range of a Grand Symphony, 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 Sitka Spruce, a favoured tonewood of Taylor's due to it's excellent tonal properties. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a wide dynamic range, with intricate articulation that works well with a plethora of styles ranging from strumming to fingerstyle.
The back and sides of the guitar are built using laminate Rosewood. Rosewood has the enviable tonal quality of having delivering a sweet and warm mid range whilst gently stretching beyond into the lower and upper frequency ranges. This gives it a robust yet gentle timbre. 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-T electronics system for times when you wish to play through an amplifier. The ES-T 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 that are on the full ES in more expensive models. These are discreetly tucked away so that they don't interfere with your playing.
The Taylor GS Mini-e RW is a beautifully designed little powerhouse that is ready to play straight out of the bag, wherever you are!
