Product information - Taylor GS Mini-e Mahogany Lefthand

Compact, electro acoustic guitar with solid top and including bag

The Taylor GS Mini-e Mahogany Lefthand at a glance:

  • Compact acoustic guitar for left-handers
  • GS Mini format with short 597 mm scale length
  • Taylor ES-B pickup system with integrated tuner
  • Solid mahogany top and arched, laminated sapele body
  • Slim Sapele neck with ebony fingerboard and 20 frets
  • In-house chrome-plated die-cast tuners
  • 42,8 mm nut made of Nubone and Micarta bridge inlay
  • 4 mm Dot-Inlays made of Italian Acrylic
  • Bag included

The Taylor GS Mini-e Mahogany Lefthand is excellent for use on the road thanks to its compact design. A high-quality electronics enriches the instrument in its functionality and creates the possibility to give the acoustic sound also amplified to the best. Despite its small size, the acoustic guitar produces a powerful and midrange-rich sound that unfolds quickly and over a wide area. In addition, the short neck allows easy fingering in all 20 frets, which intonate cleanly with the help of a finely crafted Hardware. A thickly padded bag is included and protects the instrument perfectly from shocks.

Construction and woods

The GS Mini gets its name from its rounded shape, which corresponds to the proportions of the Taylor Grand Symphony. The instrument is built very lightly to develop a rich sound despite the small construction. A solid mahogany top thus provides powerful midrange frequencies, while an arched, laminated body made of Sapele enriches the basses with a warm note. At the same time, a flat Sapele neck with an ebony fingerboard guarantees a distinctly comfortable feel.

Hardware and finish

Chrome-plated die-cast tuners are set into the characteristic Taylor headstock, ensuring precise tuning of the 6 steel strings. In addition, a Micarta bridge inlay and a 42.8mm wide nut made of Nubone ensure very accurate intonation across the scale. The rather plain matt lacquered instrument is rounded off by a generous pickguard made of tortoise and a three-ring soundhole rosette, which is perfectly matched to the 4 mm Dot-Inlays in the fingerboard.

Electronics

The Taylor GS Mini-e Mahogany is equipped with a user-friendly ES-B pickup system that can be individually adjusted via a side preamp. In addition, the system includes an integrated tuner with LED display. Powered by 2 button cells ( CR 2032 ), the active pickup promises about 300 hours of playing time.

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 crafts men 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, which can no longer regenerate due to the high pace of mining. 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 colored, more clearly grained parts of the tree. This complete recycling is an effective method of preserving stocks and successfully counteracts their dramatic decline and the negative ecological effects that accompany it.

"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.
