Play With A Form That Always Fits - The Taylor GS Mini-e LTD Ovangkol Acoustic-Electric Guitar Is Loud But Small
This limited run Taylor GS Mini-e is actually a downsized version of the popular Taylor Grand Symphony body style - so it's both ultra-portable and ultra resonant, and features a solid Sitka spruce top with exotic layered Ovangkol back and sides.
The GS MINI-e boasts their ES-B pickup, which incorporates Taylor's own Expression System 2 piezo design, with an onboard preamp, a digital chromatic tuner, and the Volume and Tone controls. Like the other Mini models, this modern-day parlor guitar will wow the world with its fun-size appeal - it packs a grown-up guitar voice into a scaled-down form that fits perfectly into everyday life. As active or relaxed as you want to be - having a Mini on hand is like having your songwriting muse on-demand. The Mini comes with a hard bag.
Taylor's layered backs and sides incorporate three layers of wood, featuring a middle core of poplar with a veneer on each side. While layered woods won't produce quite as complex a sound as solid woods, they allow blending exotic looks with a climate-resilient toughness.
The ES-B pickup incorporates Taylor's own Expression System 2 piezo design, with an onboard preamp, a digital chromatic tuner, and the Volume and Tone controls. It is powered by two button cell 3v lithium CR2032 batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use. The ES-B preamp will automatically turn off if left on more than 3 minutes and an indicator will display an "L" when the battery reaches 4.5 volts.
There's a lot to be said for the clean, traditional look of a non-cutaway acoustic guitar. If you simply prefer the symmetrical hourglass contours, a non-cutaway model is a great option.
