A Short-scale Grand Symphony with BIG Sound
Modeled after the popular Grand Symphony body style, the fun-sized appeal of the Taylor GS Mini-e Walnut acoustic-electric guitar is undeniable. It doesn't sound small though. From the first strum, you'll be greeted by a direct, punchy tone with plenty of warmth and high-end response. And this guitar's level of projection is astonishing for such a small instrument. The GS Mini-e Walnut is ready for plugged-in performances too, thanks to built-in ES2 electronics. The Taylor GS Mini-e Walnut is a great acoustic-electric guitar for studio, stage, or travel.
Ultra-portable acoustic-electric guitar that can go anywhere
Taylor's award-winning GS Mini-e Walnut 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 Walnut is a guitar you can easily pack in any vehicle, haul on the subway, or even stow in overhead compartments on planes. Perfect for camping, festivals, or just hauling long distances, the GS Mini-e Walnut is a compact guitar that can go everywhere.
Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor goes about it a bit differently. Their Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of a Taylor guitar.
Quality construction and materials yield excellent performance
Taylor has a reputation for quality guitars and materials and the GS Mini-e Walnut is no exception. This model features a Sitka spruce top and layered walnut back and sides. Both woods are durable and produce great tone. The spruce top has a direct, punchy sound with great headroom. And the layered walnut back and sides of the Mini-e Walnut deliver warmth and a bright bell-like ring. At Sweetwater, we love how the GS Mini-e Walnut's ebony fretboard and bridge offer great tone and stability to this amazing guitar.
