Aptly titled, the GS Mini is exactly that: a down-sized Taylor GS-shaped acoustic. Built in its Mexican factory (along with the Baby, 100 and 200 series) it was launched in the USA in 2010 and now claims first prize in our budget acoustic guitar poll.
Taylor obviously sees it as a travel guitar, but perhaps their description of a "modern day parlour guitar" is just as accurate.
Beautifully simplistic in design and concept, the GS Mini is much more than just a travel guitar. Yes, it fits that bill perfectly but Taylor's modern day parlour description is more fitting.
This is a guitar with its own vibe and voice - and both are very appealing. Of course, the guitar is compact and built to a price, but Taylor's vast experience in production guitar manufacturing ensures that these 'economies' don't get in the way of the important things: playability and sound. 45 Stars
