Compact and lightweight, the left-handed GS Mini-e Maple Bass offers players a remarkably inviting short-scale acoustic bass that’s ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of Taylor's GS Mini family, this four-string bass creates impressive natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length, about ten inches shorter than the scale length of a standard electric bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with D’Addario exclusively for the Taylor GS Mini-e Maple Bass guitar.
Together with Taylor’s patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. With the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on the hands. From kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players to guitarists craving a couch-friendly option and a new tool of inspiration, the GS Mini-e Maple Bass is a fun and versatile instrument to have in your musical arsenal for jamming, recording, or writing. Features stage and recording ready ES-B 1.2 active onboard bass electronics and ships in a structured gig bag for easy portability and travel.
