GS MINI-E K V2

2 models to choose from:

Online

This alluring all-koa version of the GS Mini pairs a solid koa top with layered koa back and sides, serving up an inspiring blend of looks, feel and sound. The compact Mini's scaled-down design delivers ultra-portability for players on the go and couch-friendly comfort for picking at home, while the rich, full voice belies its size. The patented neck design guarantees signature Taylor playability, and the shorter 23.5-inch scale length makes forming a chord a breeze. Onboard ES-B electronics invite you to plug in whenever you're ready, and feature a convenient built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication.

FEATURES

GS Mini Shape packs a ton of tone into a comfortable travel size, giving you a guitar that's full-voiced and incredibly fun to play.

Hawaiian Koa Top Wood - A koa top's visual beauty is instantly inspiring, while its sonic rewards unfold over time, as warm, sweet overtones gradually emerge.

Layered Koa Body Wood - Koa veneer is part of the resilient layered construction on the 210ce-K DLX and 214ce-K DLX.

ES-B Electronics - The ES-B pickup incorporates Taylor's Expression System 2 piezo design elements and features an onboard preamp with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner unit features an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, along with Tone and Volume controls. The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium (CR2032) batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use.

Non-cutaway - The clean, symmetrical look of a traditional acoustic guitar.

Since I got my Mini-e, it has been played more than any other. The sound is warm, and plugged in you could not tell the difference between a bigger Taylor and this with eyes closed. Plus, the smaller size makes it super comfortable. Two of my guitar playing buddies want to buy the same guitar, so that says something. The koa top is beautiful, though it will get a bit of shine where touched most often. I bought a hard case for mine, but most of the time it stays on the wall so I can grab it quickly. Yes, it's a lot of money, but the value is in the playing. My only real complaint is the tuner button can accidentally be turned on through the soft case.

Only had it for a few months now but I like the size the eveness of the sounds. I had a Martin M 000 that I loved as I was playing swing backup guitar. Long story short, This gtr works for that and for much else. Peter

Watched a million reviews, played a million guitars, kept coming back to this one, to me was the most comfortable, sounded the best in the entire store in terms of acoustics at least. To my ear anyhow. Beautiful instrument, electronics system is top-notch, super portable, sounds 10 times bigger than it actually is, what’s not to love! Highly recommend all the GS mini lineup. This one happens to be my favourite because it’s the most beautiful and has the nicest preamp system.

For the past six months or so I have been considering getting a new guitar and visited the local long and McQuade store here in Fredericton and I played pretty much every guitar there, from $200 guitars to $6000 guitars, but I just kept coming back to this GS mini Koa, so was super happy to pick it up last weekend. One of the most comfortable guitars I’ve ever played, perfect size for playing on the couch but sounds amazing plugged in as well. Koa is so much brighter than spruce or mahogany and I feel it suits the size of the guitar and gives it something extra. Just love the tone. Spectacular to look at due to koa’s unique colour and grain. I’ve read and watched a ton of reviews on this guitar and as most people would agree, it is a must-have for any guitar player! Will make a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection. Thanks to the gentlemen at the store for the always great service.
