    Product Description

    The GS Mini Koa has become a popular model thanks to its versatile tone, stunning looks, and portability. The GS Mini Koa Plus improves on this formula with Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics, the same they use in their top-of-the-line models, and their premium Aerocase softcase!

    GS Mini

    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 Koa Body With Solid Top

    The GS Mini Koa Plus has laminated-wood back and sides - an interior layer sapele, a core layer of poplar, and an exterior koa veneer layer. The top is made from solid koa for a richer, more complex tone. Solid koa is known for its initially quite bright tone, but as the guitar ages and matures you'll find it mellows into a warmer and sweeter sound.

    Expression System 2

    The GS Mini Koa Plus features Taylor’s Expression System 2 (ES2) pickup system. Unlike a traditional undersaddle piezo pickup, the ES2 is located behind the bridge with three individually calibrated pickup sensors. The result is a greater dynamic range and less "squashed" sound from your pickup tone. The preamp is simple but effective with just volume, treble and bass controls for shaping your sound. There's also an interior phase switch to help reduce low-frequency feedback. Whether you're performing live into an amp or PA or you're recording into an audio interface the GS Mini Koa Plus is ready to plug-in-and-play right out of the box!

    A stunning guitar which was set up very well on arrival, with perfect low action. I was expecting to have to lower the action based on reviews for other GS mini's, but this was not he case at all. I find it very easy to play compared to other larger 'normal' sized acoustic guitars. The finish is stunning, I even have a 'unique' looking fretboard which I wasn't expecting which really adds to the look of the guitar. The aerocase is great, it pretty much feels like a lightweight hardcase with straps for easy transport. I am very impressed by the tone, it is even better than expected from the video reviews. Notably when fast picking individual strings, it sounds fantastic, I thought this would be the negative side of the Koa wood which I thought would be best for strumming away but happily I was wrong, it is truly great at both. It was not as loud as I was expecting from some other reviews I had seen but it is perfect for practicing at home and it can be plugged in for extra volume if needed. Overall, I can only say that if you are on the fence about this guitar due to its price, I certainly recommend you take the plunge. For me it is great value for money, I wont be needing another acoustic for many years!
