Taylor Introduces the GS Mini Guitar

Taylor Guitars new GS Mini is a scaled-down version of the company’s Grand Symphony body shape and has new Taylor-designed pickup accessories.

It has a scale length of 23½" and a deeper body than the Baby Taylor, especially in the lower bout. To add to the guitar’s "pick up and perform" appeal, Taylor also wanted to offer an acoustic pickup for the Mini, but one that could be purchased after-market and easily installed by anyone. Designed exclusively for the Mini, the ES-Go is a proprietary magnetic soundhole pickup inspired by Taylor’s award-winning Expression System. Part of the ES-Go’s design simplicity is that each Mini is pre-fitted for easy installation of the pickup, and can be plugged in with the guitar’s discrete, snap-in interior clip. Another accessory that was designed to make it easy to plug in and play is the Taylor V-Cable: a quarter-inch cable with a built-in master volume control. Because the Mini was designed without tone or volume knobs, The V-Cable gives players a volume control where it plugs into the guitar, putting volume control at every player’s fingertips any time they plug in. "It’s brilliant and simple," shares Bob. "It allows anyone with a guitar but no volume knob to add volume control. You can find it in the dark, you can turn your cable off to unplug noiselessly, and you can use it on any guitar you have."

The GS Mini has a solid Sitka top, a back and sides of sapele laminate, an ebony fretboard and bridge, and a tortoise shell pickguard. The Mini comes ready to go anywhere in a specially engineered Taylor GS Mini Hardbag and will be available at domestic Taylor dealers starting in late July.
