Play A Little Guitar More Often With A Taylor GS MINI Mahogany Acoustic Guitar. This Scaled Down Version Of A Grand Symphony Is Made To Be Ultra Portable And Ultra Resonant - It Features A Solid Mahogany Top With Layered Mahogany Back And Sides.
A marvel of scaled-down design, the GS Mini is a fun little acoustic cannon that has taken the world by storm. Sporting a rich, full voice that belies its compact size, the Mini is ultra-portable, yet just as comfortable to cradle in the comfort of your home, making it the ultimate modern-day parlor guitar. Featuring the Taylor NT neck, the Mini comes with either a solid spruce or mahogany top. And with the easy-to-add ES-Go pickup and Taylor V-Cable, you'll have a viable performance tool, too.
Inspired by the big, bold sound of Taylor's Grand Symphony, the GS Mini scales things down without skimping on sound. The guitar manages to pack a ton of tone into a comfortable, travel-and couch-friendly guitar that's full-voiced and incredibly fun to play.
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won't yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.
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 us to blend exotic looks with climate-resilient construction.
There's a lot to be said for the clean, traditional look of a non-cutaway acoustic guitar. If you don't plan to play in the upper register, which is made more accessible with a cutaway, or if you simply prefer the symmetrical hourglass contours of a guitar, a non-cutaway model is a great option.
