Taylor's GS Goes Compact!

Looking for Taylor quality in a small-sized guitar? The Taylor GS Mini-E Mahogany acoustic-electric guitar gives you Taylor construction and sound in a compact package. Modeled after the popular Grand Symphony body style, the GS Mini-E Mahogany is a portable guitar that will amaze you with its big sound. Typically we expect small sounds from small guitars, but thanks to the luthiers at Taylor, the GS Mini-E Mahogany bucks that trend. The mahogany top, sapele back and sides, and ebony fingerboard give the GS Mini-E Mahogany a rich and full sound you will love, with built-in ES2 electronics for great plugged-in tone. If you are looking for a compact guitar with great sound, the Taylor GS Mini-E Mahogany acoustic-electric guitar is for you.

Ultra-portable acoustic

Taylor's award-winning GS Mini-E Mahogany is a scaled-down version of their ever-popular Grand Symphony guitar shape. With a total length of just over 36", the GS Mini-E Mahogany is a guitar you can easily pack in any vehicle, haul on the subway, or even in overhead compartments on planes. Perfect for camping, festivals, or just hauling long distances, the GS Mini-E Mahogany is a compact guitar with a big tone that can go everywhere you go.

Small in stature, but big in sound

Even with its diminutive size, the Taylor GS Mini-E Mahogany guitar has a big sound. To put it simply, it is a cannon. You'll be surprised at how big and full the GS Mini-E Mahogany sounds. Think of the GS mini as a modern-day parlor guitar, the perfect size to make it easy to haul around, but still with a rich, full sound.

Quality construction and materials

Taylor has a reputation for quality guitars and materials and the GS Mini-E Mahogany is no exception. This model features a tropical mahogany top and laminate sapele back and sides. Both woods are durable and produce great tone. The mahogany top is not as bright as a spruce top but has a full, rich sound with a little extra punch. The laminate sapele back and sides of the GS Mini-E Mahogany deliver a great rich tone while adding durability and stability to the guitar. The ebony fretboard and bridge offer great tone and even more stability to this amazing little guitar.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your GS Mini-E Mahogany acoustic guitar. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the GS Mini-E Mahogany's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.

  • Scaled-down Grand Symphony guitar with big sound
  • Built-in ES2 electronics for sweet plugged-in tone
  • Tropical mahogany top
  • Laminated sapele back and sides

Fantastic Guitar - Amazing Customer Service

This is my second GS Mini and I couldn't be more thrilled! I have a few trips planned this summer and of my excursions includes air travel followed by a cruise. I was too worried about anything happening to the Koa I already own to take it on the trip so I ordered a Mahogany through Sweetwater. I had no idea my contact at Sweetwater, Bob Mondok, would pick out the very best most beautiful sounding AND looking GS Mini that exists! For a minute I was afraid that I'd get to attached to this one to take it on trips, too. But, I will take it with me everywhere and not baby it like I'm inclined to do because it is a travel guitar and I want to play it EVERYWHERE! The solid wood top gives it an incredible sound while the laminate back and sides provide the stability I want in a travel guitar. It also comes with a pretty substantial and lightweight case so I can tote it with me everywhere! Oh, and I'm real happy with the price I got, too. The best I could find (and I'm good at finding deals) So, to sum up. Great service with follow-up, incredible guitar, best price anywhere, and I get to take it with me everywhere I go? Yup! I'm a happy guitar player! Thank you, Sweetwater!
