Small in stature, but big in sound
Even with its diminutive size, the Taylor GS Mini-E Mahogany 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-E Mahogany 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-E Mahogany is no exception. This model features a tropical mahogany top and laminate 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 laminate sapele back and sides of the GS Mini-E Mahogany deliver a great rich 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 ES-B electronics
Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor goes about it a bit differently. Their Expression System-B 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.Whether you’re onstage playing through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or running direct into recording software, the ES-B faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
