Product Description

Crafted as part of a limited run of premium GS Mini models, the GS Mini-e Koa pairs a solid koa top with a back and sides of exotic veneered Hawaiian Koa. As a tropical hardwood, a koa top will initially project a bright and focused tone, especially together with koa back and sides, but as it's played, it matures into an increasingly warm, rich, sweet sound with healthy overtone "bloom," especially in the midrange. A common mistake is when a "bright" player buys a koa-top guitar in part for its visual beauty, finds it to be too bright, and doesn't play it enough to allow the wood to develop its resonant tone.

Onboard ES-B electronics include a built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication. The ES-B pickup incorporates Taylor’s Expression System® 2 piezo design elements and features an onboard preamp with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner unit features an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, along with Tone and Volume controls. The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium (CR2032) batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use. The ES-B conserves battery life using a standard on/off system that will automatically turn off if left on over 3 minutes. A low battery indicator on the LED display (located on the preamp circuit board) will display an “L” when the battery reaches 4.5 volts.

The compact Mini’s scaled-down design blends ultra-portability with the voice and projection of a full-size guitar, while Taylor’s patented NT neck guarantees signature Taylor playability.

A special instrument
What is your opinion of this product?
Beyond a “travel guitar”, this is a special instrument. Well made, beautiful tone. The electronics are good, but the natural sound is even better,

Beautiful look and sound in a gig bag
What is your opinion of this product?
I’ve owned many expensive acoustics, Gibson j15/45, Taylor ce814, Martin dpca4 and M36, and this thing definitely stands on its own 2 feet. I won’t say that this guitar is as full or power as the guitars listed above, that’s just sonically impossible, but it is the best smaller scale acoustic I’ve used. Wood quality is absolutely beautiful, and the sound is very pronounced. Finger picking sounds amazing and the little body really projects single notes beautifully. Plugged in and it competes with whatever else is happening in the mix in a very appropriate manner. Pushed through without sounding small and cheap. I give a lot of lessons around Dallas TX and to be able to grab the gigbag over my shoulder and get to work while leaving my big expensive acoustics home is a treat. I use it for most acoustic gigs as well considering the sound is phenomenal and it’s an easy to carry around instrument. Order one and you’ll see why this is one of the best selling acoustics on the market.

Awesome little guitar with a big sound
What is your opinion of this product?
I opted for the Koa model. Awesome guitar for youths and adult players alike. Wouldn’t be afraid to plug this into the system and fill out the sound in a band setting. Great action out of the box. Highly recommended

Beautiful Koa with a Great Voice
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a very impressive guitar for its size. The low end is definitely present but it also sparkles on the high end. The Koa is absolutely beautiful. The case included is top of the line and will protect the guitar very well. The onboard electronics are ample and so what they are supposed to do. This is my first acoustic with an onboard tuner and it is very convenient to have. If you are thinking of buying a small scale acoustic that plays effortlessly you have to consider the Taylor GS Mini-e. Just as an end note, AMS is incredible to purchase from. The interest free payment plans makes owning expensive gear very easy. Customer service is top notch and shipping is quick and everything is always well packed.

Gorgeous guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a gorgeous instrument and even though it’s just a mini, it has that full-bodied Taylor sound. The case is also superb! I was leary of a “gig bag”, but this case is beautiful, extremely protective, and has room for accessories and books.

My first Taylor!
What is your opinion of this product?
There’s nothing “mini” about the sound of this instrument. It’s absolutely gorgeous and sounds out like a true Taylor. Also the “gig bag” that comes with it needs a bit of applause itself. It’s a custom made, padded case, that is a work of art in itself. So very satisfied with my Taylor.
