GS MINI-E BASS

Limited stock available in select stores only

The new small-scale GS Mini-e Bass incorporates a proprietary string set developed by D'Addario, along with a Taylor-patented dual-prong bridge pin that was designed to optimize the string break angle and produce pleasing bass notes with the shorter scale length. The result is an inviting, portable and great-sounding instrument that makes playing acoustic bass more fun and accessible to a broader range of guitar customers.

The bass features the standard GS Mini body and scale length (23.5 inches), with layered sapele back/sides, a solid spruce top, new bracing, and new GS Mini-e Bass tuners in chrome. Details include a 1-11/16-inch scale length, 4mm Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, 3-ring rosette, matte finish, and ES-B electronics featuring an onboard preamp with tone and volume controls and built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication. Ships in a GS Mini-e Bass hard bag with embroidered logo.

Product ExperienceI own it

I stopped at L&M to pick up some screws for a pick guard and thought I would check out a U-bass. I didn't get that far when I noticed the Taylor. After about 1/2 hour of noodling with it, it came home with me and I forgot the screws. Need to go back tomorrow. Great little bass. OK sound unplugged but awesome through my Hartkes and especially nice through a Phil Jones double 4 that I recently got. The strings on this are different than normal bass strings. More bendable. they are bright almost like XL reds I have on a full bodied acoustic bass that I have.The intonation at the 12th fret is a wee bit off out of the box, but an easy fix with a truss rod tweak. Good job Taylor. A bit pricey but the sound makes up for the cost.

Had some time stopped in at long and mcquade, found this little bass just lost 50 mins playing with it. Small scale makes it stupid easy to move fast with fingering. Little pricey but dame is it fun
