Taylor GS Mini-E Mahogany Acoustic/Electric 2013
Taylor GS-Mini, limited Mahogany model, made in Mexico 2013. These are a lovely little thing. In the world of small acoustics, the GS Mini really stands out for it's natural feel and even, nuanced tone. It's an addictive little strummer; super easy to play equally at home in a crowded bar or on a couch. Most of these had no pickup, this model shipped with a factory magnetic pickup which is pretty handy. The solid mahogany top and sapele back and sides lend this a warm, dark tone and a luxurious look; it's very cute indeed. The carry bag is awesome too; sling it over your back and you're off. Tip: this won't last long, so be quick!
