GS Mini body shape gives great sound in a mini package
The award-winning original GS Mini-e was designed to be the ultimate musical companion. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor’s Grand Symphony (GS) body shape, the Mini scales down the GS body without skimping on sound — packing a ton of tone into a comfortable travel size and giving you a guitar that’s full-voiced and incredibly fun to play. At Sweetwater, we think of the GS Mini as a modern-day parlor guitar, perfect for playing around the house but also built to fit an active lifestyle.
Hawaiian koa: a tonewood like no other
When you mention koa around guitar players, ears immediately perk up. That’s because of its appealing figuring and notable tone. Since koa only grows on the Hawaiian islands, it’s prized for its rarity as much as its sound. Combining the warmth of mahogany with the depth of rosewood and sparkling character of ebony, koa is one of the tonewood juggernauts. As you continue to play your guitar, the top will open up and become even warmer and more resonant than before. On top of that, the layered koa back and sides of this instrument provide superior resistance to changes in humidity from one environment to another — a must-have for players who travel regularly.
Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
Taylor’s Expression System 2 is designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar’s natural tone. This system utilizes three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors installed behind the saddle and through the bridge to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with audio pioneer Mr. Rupert Neve, Taylor’s electronics are seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor or set it flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
