"Celebrating music’s power to bring people together and the creative energy harnessed from the outdoors, the collaboration aims to capture that spirit through vibrant custom designs packaged into one of the world's most popular acoustic guitars, the Taylor GS Mini," says Stio. 

Stio partnered with nine artists with ties to its Mountain Studios to create original designs that are inspired by the "textures and stories of the outdoors".

The two companies are clearly a great match here – and ethically too. Stio shares Taylor's commitment to using sustainable materials, advocating for conservation locally and nationally. 

The special edition Stio ft Taylor Guitars GS-Minis are $699 each and available to order from and to try out in its Mountain Studio stores.
