Taylor Acoustic Guitars - GS Mini Blackwood LTD
This Taylor GS Mini Blackwood LTD acoustic features gorgeous Blackwood laminate back and sides (an Acacia, and 'cousin' of Koa) with a Sitka top. Why a mini? At 23 1/12" scale, it's perfect not only for smaller hands, but also for travel, camping or just always having on hand in the living room - this is a real player that delivers great sound. Have a gig? This mini can totally bring it. Premier Guitar calls the mini the 'new Parlor guitar for the 21st century' - giving it a 4 out of 5 rating. Taylor created a super playable, full size feeling acoustic that delivers real tone - all in a durable and totally portable size. The body depth is over an inch deeper than the Baby Taylor and the scale length is 3/4" longer - the tonal difference is clear once you strum it. This is a great instrument. Nice details are here too with an Ebony fretboard, an Ebony bridge, and the same tuners, nut and saddle materials that are used on full sized Taylors. No skimping here.
Playability is excellent, and the tone here really reaches well beyond other minis you've heard before, with a really full, wide range. No, it's not a full size dread, but it is a definite leap forward in build and tone for smaller travel sized guitars. This has a noticeable warmth and full sound that will really surprise you.
This also comes with a cool hybrid type gig bag that has straps and is totally travel worthy, while giving you extra padding and substantial neck support for the mini. Wish you could plug it in? You can! Add in the Taylor ES-Go pickup for just $99. It's super easy to install and delivers true tone. This Taylor GS Mini Blackwood LTD is a real innovation at a great price.
