This Guitar is LOVE at first play. Working at a guitar store, I am able to try and compare many different guitars, and the Taylor GS Mini Mahogany acoustic is one that really stands out above the rest. The 2012 GS Mini Mahogany is a breed all it’s own. It features a solid Mahogany top, laminate Sapele back and sides, Sapele neck, an ebony fingerboard, Nubone nut and saddle, mini chrome tuners, pearloid dot inlays, and a smooth satin finish. From the first chord you play, you will notice the warmth, depth, and amazingly, the volume, that this guitar has to offer. I personally want a guitarthat is small enough to take anywhere, but that will still maintain the tone of a full sized guitar. That is what the GS Mini offers – portability and amazing sound. The GS Mini is available in either a Sitka spruce top or (my favorite) the Mahogany top. The solid Mahogany top delivers a warmer tone than that of its brighter Spruce top counterpart. It sounds great for bluesy style or finger-style playing, but is still versatile enough that it sounds great no matter what style you’re playing. The smaller size and shorter 23 ½” scale length are nice as well, and make playing very comfortable and easy.  Taylor was practical in the construction of the Mahogany GS Mini because they used Sapele laminate back and sides. The laminate back and sides are more durable, and will hold up against climate changes and humidity fluctuations better than solid wood can. An added bonus is the pickup available exclusively for the GS mini, which you can install in minutes to amplify your sound – The ES GO. It clicks into a pre-installed bracket at the neck beneath the sound hole, and gives you the opportunity to bring your sound to the stage.  What else could you need? Maybe, a bag to bring it with you wherever you go? Oh, well it comes with that too! You can bring the Mahogany GS Mini with you anywhere you decide to adventure, and it will even fit in the overhead compartment of a plane. So if you are searching for a new guitar and you are planning on playing in your room, on the stage, in the mountains, or on the beach, I recommend you look no further. All in all, the acoustic Taylor GS Mini Mahogany guitar is, in my opinion, an achievement Taylor should be very proud of, and a guitar worth owning.
