Taylor Limited Edition GS Mini Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Layered Koa Back and Sides and ES-B Electronics

A solid Sitka spruce top paired with layered Hawaiian koa back and sides make a winning combination on this limited-run GS Mini offering. Spruce's clarity, responsiveness and dynamic range give players a full-voiced sonic palette to explore, while koa's visual charms promise to level up the musical inspiration. GS Mini-e Koa LTD features 4mm Italian acrylic dot inlays, matte finish and chrome tuners, along with onboard ES-B electronics, including a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The guitar comes with a structured gig bag that features sewn-in adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.

 

GS Mini shape

GS Mini was designed to be the ultimate musical companion, wherever you go. Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's Grand Symphony body shape, GS Mini scales things down without skimping on sound, packing a ton of tone into a comfortable travel size and giving you a guitar that's full-voiced and incredibly fun to play. Think of GS Mini as a modern-day parlor guitar, perfect for playing around the house but also built to fit an active lifestyle.

Non-cutaway

There's a lot to be said for the clean, traditional look of a non-cutaway acoustic guitar. If you don't plan to play in the upper register or simply prefer the symmetrical hourglass contours of a guitar, a non-cutaway model is a great option.

Sitka spruce top wood

As a guitar soundboard, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking.

Layered koa body wood

Layered koa features an all-wood laminated construction with an exterior layer of beautifully figured koa veneer and an interior layer of sapele, separated by a core layer of poplar. Though the tonal properties of layered wood aren't as complex as solid wood, the construction method enables Taylor to conserve tonewood resources and offer attractive, durable instruments at a more inviting price. A solid spruce top and Taylor craftsmanship ensure a clear, balanced tonal response.

ES-B electronics

The ES-B pickup incorporates Taylor's Expression System 2 piezo design elements and features an onboard preamp with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner unit features an LED display for tuning and low battery indication along with tone and volume controls. The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use.

Gig bag included

This Taylor hard bag blends the protective properties of a hard case with the lightweight portability of a gig bag. It features a tan 600-denier exterior and a 70-denier interior that's reinforced at the peghead and tail end. Its supportive structure includes rigid PVC sidewalls, full-length Correx/EPE foam hard top and back and an EPE foam neck rest. Also includes vinyl-wrapped carry and pull-up handles and sewn-in adjustable backpack straps.
