Quality construction and materials

Taylor has a reputation for quality guitars and materials, and the Nashville-tuned GS Mini is no exception. This model features a Sitka spruce top and layered sapele back and sides. Both woods are durable and produce great tone. The spruce top is brighter than a mahogany top for a balanced sound with the right amount of sparkle. 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 Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Strung with Nashville-tuned strings for sparkle and jangle
  • Sitka spruce top
  • Layered sapele back and sides
  • Ebony fretboard and bridge
  • Short 23.5" scale length
  • Scaled-down Grand Symphony guitar with a unique sound
  • Can revert back to standard tuning by changing strings with no modifications to the guitar
Add a compact and great-sounding acoustic guitar to your collection with the Taylor GS Mini.

Sweetwater and Taylor team up & do it again . . .

I've bought 5 Taylor guitars the last year and once again Sales Engineer Paul Rowan and the Sweetwater team deliver. Not only is the guitar amazing . . . but the service is off the charts. Order . . . get it . . play it. I've always been a Gibson guy since my first Melody Maker in 1965 but the Taylors have amazing sound and superior build quality. I'm really impressed.The Nashville Tuning is interesting. Like others have observed, it works better for some "musical missions" than others . . so I immediately laid down a track with a Taylor 6 string and then played along with the GS Mini in the Nashville Tuning. I see the secret the Nashville folks have been hiding . . amazing.I'm going to restring it in standard tuning for a bit, get comfy with it and then just enjoy the heck out of it.Thanks to the folks at Taylor for the superior craftsmanship and to the team at Sweetwater for making the buying experience so fun.
