Spruce and Sapele

The Taylor GS Mini Sapele owes its rich acoustic sound to select tonewoods that are Taylor-aged and superbly crafted. Laminated Sapele back and sides produce a bright sound while providing a pleasant warmth in the basses and mids, while the tight-grained solid Sitka Spruce top adds its excellent treble response with brilliant tones. Especially over time, the sound characteristics of spruce continue to develop to perfection, which is why it enjoys the highest popularity in the choice of top woods in guitar making. At the same time, the Natural Matt finish guarantees absolutely unadulterated sound results without its restrictive varnishes and, on top of that, brings out the attractive grain of the woods in a completely natural way.

Compact dimensions and pleasant playability

In addition to its excellent sound, the guitar promises the highest playing comfort, because its grippy mini body offers comfortable handling for both children and adults. In addition, the shortened 597 mm scale length reduces the amount of force needed to grip the guitar, which is particularly beneficial for inexperienced fingers. Also the slim mahogany neck with its nut width of 42.8 mm fits comfortably in the hand, while the smooth ebony fingerboard ebony fingerboard allows an effortless gliding of the fingering hand over all 20 frets frets. Meanwhile, an ebony bridge with compensated micarta inlay inlay for absolutely clean intonation and chrome-plated die-cast tuners for high tuning stability.

Taylor - The epitome of fine quality

As one of the largest guitar manufacturers, Taylor is truly an authority in the production of first-class instruments. Thus, professional manufacturing by skilled craftsmen results in the very finest products for life, whose value is always maintained - or even increased! This is due in equal part to exquisite tonewoods, which do not warp due to long storage and selected quality and as a result, can hardly be surpassed in terms of high quality. Only spruce, mahogany, cedar or Koa of proven quality are used for the tops. By the way, careful production in combination with the best materials does not only apply to guitars. Guitar bags and all accessories are also of first-class quality. Finally, a conscientious final inspection does not let even the smallest defects pass and ensures absolutely flawless guitars even before shipment.

And that's not all: Taylor also attaches great importance to environmentally conscious actions.

Ebony & Koa: Sustainability at Taylor Guitars.

Uncontrolled clearing of forests and overexploitation lead to massively endangered wood species that are no longer able to regenerate due to the high pace of deforestation. These include ebony and koa in particular, whose dwindling stocks and the resulting ecological problems have prompted a rethink at Taylor Guitars.

Taylor Sustainability

Sustainable Ebony Cultivation in Cameroon

Because ebony's hard, supple texture makes it particularly finger-friendly, it has long been the preferred choice for making fingerboards. Its attractive appearance is also extremely popular for bridges, headstock rests, bridge Pins and Bindings. However, high demand and a thriving black market outstripped stocks, landing ebony on the Red List of Endangered Species in 1994. Moreover, only the jet-black heartwood, which makes up only a fraction of the tree, was used, resulting in a disproportionately large amount of waste in production. In order to protect the forests, Taylor has therefore been working since 2011 with the Crelicam Wood Mill in Yaoundé in Cameroon to promote controlled consumption by processing waste products. Thus, not only black ebony elements are found in Taylor guitars, but also the different coloured, more clearly-grained parts of the tree. This complete recycling is an effective method of preserving stocks and successfully counteracts their dramatic dwindling and the accompanying negative ecological effects.

"We need to use the ebony that the forest gives us" - Bob Taylor

Siglo Tonewoods Project

Koa acacia populations have also suffered severe losses over the last 20 years. Unsustainable forestry as well as overexploitation led to a decline that can only be stopped by proactive action and reforestation. Therefore, Taylor Guitars together with Pacific Rim Tonewoods founded the Siglo Tonewoods project, which aims to rebuild the Hawaiian virgin forest. This is a large cultivation area for koa acacia and other species, which allows the use of koa wood on a controlled scale.
