Ultra-portable acoustic

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

Small in stature, big in sound

Even with its diminutive size, the Taylor GS Mini acoustic 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 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 is no exception. This model features a tropical mahogany top and layered 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 layered sapele back and sides of the GS Mini deliver a great 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 GS Mini Mahogany

I am a beginner and wanted a smaller guitar to keep at my office. I did a lot of research and went to some local stores to check out the 3/4 size guitars. This guitar has fantastic ratings no matter where you look. I was down to several choices of guitars and with the help of Scott Brobst at Sweetwater purchased this fine instrument. It went through their 55 point check and came to me ready to play. The service is great at Sweetwater and I cannot thank Scott enough for helping me get such a beautiful guitar.

Love this guitar

I bought my GS Mini for travel and camping but tend to play it all the time now. I have other guitars, including a Taylor 312ce, but the GS is on top of the fun factor scale. I keep it in open G tuning and it sounds great. I've had it for close to a year and it's opened up quite nicely. I did have to have the neck re-set, but that was covered under Taylor's warranty. The NT neck makes that job a breeze for a good repair tech.

Taylor Gs Mini (Mahogany}

My new Taylor GS Mini Mahogany top has met and exceeded all expectations. I had my reservations about a made in Mexico Taylor instrument but I quickly learned that its has the same quality craftsmanship as my previous American made Taylor 414 that I previously owned. This guitar plays wonderfully and has exceptional sound. Dealing with Sweetwater also exceeded all expectations I had about buying from an online store. I would definitely return to Sweetwater for any of my future musical instrument purchases.

What an awesome guitar

Taylor has done an amazing job creating a travel size guitar with such great sound. I purchased it thru Sweetwater and couldn't have had a better experience. They are a first class retailer.

Beautiful guitar

Besides being a beautiful guitar, the tone is amazing. Compared it to the Wechter, as it stands there was no comparison. The bottom of the mini is great. The volume was also impressive. Lastly the price was wonderful.
