Taylor's popular GS Mini range now features a rosewood model, the GS Mini Rosewood! Combining versatile tone, built-in electronics, and a portable size, the GS Mini is the ultimate travel guitar, and now it's available with layered rosewood back and sides.
The GS Mini body shape is a scaled-down version of Taylor's versatile Grand Symphony body. While you may get less volume and punch from the smaller body, you still get the versatility making a great guitar for strummers and fingerpickers alike. This guitar has a 23 1/2" scale length which is just over an inch shorter than a standard Grand Symphony model. The slightly shorter scale cuts down on the size of the guitar and makes it easier to play thanks to the looser string tension and closer frets. The small body and shorter scale length make it a perfect travel guitar - small enough to easily take on the road with you without comprising the playing or tonal experience.
Layered Rosewood Body With Solid Spruce Top
The back and sides of this model are made from layered rosewood - two layers of rosewood veneer around a core poplar layer - which gives that classic rosewood look at a more affordable price. Using laminated woods also allows them to bend an arch in the back for increased strength that'll hold up well to travelling. The top, however, is made from solid Sitka spruce, the industry standard for acoustic guitar tops. Spruce provides a balanced tone with a broad dynamic range making it a versatile tonewood suited to a wide range of styles.
