Overview

The Taylor GS Mini-e Koa acoustic-electric guitar is a limited-run instrument that sounds as gorgeous as it looks. With Hawaiian koa top and veneered koa back and sides, the GS Mini-e Koa has an undeniably warm sound and blooming harmonic overtones, especially for such a small instrument. Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics, with a piezo pickup behind the saddle, harness all the sweet subtleties of the acoustic sound and transfer it to your amp, PA, or recording interface. The top of each GS Mini-e Koa is unique in its flame and figuring, giving all of these guitars their own personality.

    I've played full sized instruments my whole life, this little guy is little enough to notice, but not so small that your muscle memory gets all lolo.

    The Taylor GS mini is a great sounding, and easy to play short scale guitar. The koa on mine is beautiful! It has such a great tone for a small body. Mine has the ES2 electronics still and it works and sounds just like it's full size brothers. I would not hesitate to recommend these for anyone l…

  • GS Mini-e AA Koa LTD – Seen at The Taylor Road Shows

    This is my favorite Taylor GS Mini guitar. Note that there was a limited "LTD" run of this model for the Taylor Road Shows that features AA grade Koa solid top and layered back and sides. They seemed to have taken care to have all of the body Koa match vs. the standard Koa version that can often have a beautiful top and not so great back and sides.

    A beautiful, great sounding guitar. There are no cons for this guitar. Probably the best guitar available for a smaller person to learn on, and will only sound better as it ages. A person wanting to learn to play a guitar can't do any better than this one, as most professionals have it as their f…
