Taylor GS Mini-E Koa PLUS Shaded Edgeburst - Inc AeroCase
The Taylor GS Mini-e Koa PLUS is an upgraded take on the ever-popular, short scale GS Mini electro acoustic guitar.
As the name implies, this model features a body constructed from Koa, with a solid Koa top paired with layered Koa for the back and sides. Taylor have opted to treat the body to a their Shaded Edgeburst finish, giving the guitar a standout looks, that really sets it apart from the other models in the GS Mini family.
The tropical mahogany neck utilizes Taylors NT neck design and hosts a 23.5" Ebony fingerboard that is topped with 20 frets and dot inlays. This shorter scaler, in conjunction with scaled down body, makes for a comfortable, highly playable guitar, great as a sofa instrument, to travel with, or for those of a smaller frame....and thanks to its design, you don't lose out on tone or volume/projection.
Another upgrade for this PLUS model is the inclusion of Taylor's Expression 2 electronics system. Utilizing three uniquely placed pickup sensors that sit behind the saddle, in conjunction Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, the system capture more of the guitar's dynamic properties allowing for a more natural, and pleasing plugged in sound. Controls couldn't be simpler - volume, bass and treble.
Things also take a step up with the 18:1 nickel tuners and the included Taylor AeroCase, which combines the portability of a soft case with the all important durability of a hard case.
With its great selection of upgrades, the Taylor GS Mini-E Koa PLUS is a superb addition to the GS Mini family.
