ES2 electronics upgrade this koa wood GS mini.

There’s always been plenty to love about the scaled-down size of a Taylor GS Mini. What Musician’s Friend loves about this Grand Symphony Mini-e is the koa wood construction. As a Taylor Plus model, this GS Mini koa acoustic-electric has plenty of enhanced features, too. From ES2 electronics to the shaded edge burst finish, we known you’ll really enjoy playing this Taylor GS Mini-e Koa Plus.

Koa wood builds beautiful tone

This Taylor GS Mini-e Plus is made with a solid koa top and layered koa back and sides. The solid top produces natural compression that evens out a lively attack for a balanced response. Players will find it has a controlled “roll-in” effect to the notes. Like mahogany guitars, the koa top gives you clear and direct focus, but offers a shimmer and chime to the tone. Putting the layered koa wood on the back and sides creates a sturdy platform for the vibrating string energy from the guitar top. Finished with a shaded edge burst, this is a striking koa wood acoustic-electric.

Taylor ES2 electronics add nuance

Taylor’s Expression System 2 features their patented behind-the-saddle pickup. The pickup features three individually calibrated pickup sensors, which lets you capture more dynamic range, especially when playing plugged-in. The bottom of the saddle comes in direct contact with the bridge, which lets all the great tone of this acoustic-electric come through.

Shorter scale, premium hardware and more to love

Along with the scaled-down GS body, Taylor shortened the scale to 23.5” on this GS Mini-e. This shortened scale makes it much easier to form chords while adding snap and tuning stability. You’ll get even more tuning stability with Taylor’s 18:1 nickel tuners. Other features of this Taylor GS Mini-e Plus include a copafera headstock overlay, Micarta “wave” saddle and NuBone nut.

A Taylor you can take anywhere

Since its debut, the Taylor Mini has been a go-to for players looking for a portable acoustic-electric that doesn’t sacrifice on tone and playability. This GS Mini-e Koa Plus delivers exactly that with beautiful, varnish-finished koa wood paired with Taylor’s ES2 electronics. The upgraded shaded edge burst seals the deal for us at Musician’s Friend — it’s an acoustic-electric we love looking at as much as we love playing.


  • Solid koa top with layered koa back and sides make the tone shine

  1. Dan

    I bought one of this guitars for my baby girl who was only 14 months at the time I got it, but she used to like to play with my guitars, so I decided it’s maybe time to get her own. She loved it from day one, and still does. Although she’s still too little to play it the way she should, she’s becoming very familiar with it, and like to play it or hear me play it for her. The guitars are extremely durable, as she’s let it fall a few times or step on it, and there’s not even a scratch. It’s amazing how they stay in tune for the most part, and how durable these are. Great quality, and totally worth the price!

    Well made and looks good sounds well .it would help if there were tuning instructions with it and the spare strings could do with labelling otherwise another good buy from geekshoppers

    I waited a few months to write this to make sure not to “honeymoon” this review.

    When you purchase this guitar, realize you are not buying a guitar from a large name manufacturer, but from a company that used kickstarter to get themselves off the ground

    My daughter and I learning how to play the guitar together. Even if we don’t become rock stars the quality time we are spending together is all the justification I needed to make the purchase. The strings are perfect for her little fingers.
