I was at the music store a good friend of mine works at yesterday, and picked up a mahogany Taylor GS mini they'd just gotten in. I must say, I'm blown away at how good it sounds for how much it costs. I don't think I've ever played a guitar that sounds that good for just $500. Its also the first "Travel size" guitar I've ever played and was surprised at how natural it felt. Anyone own one of these? I might buy myself an early christmas present this week!

It plays and sounds surprisingly like a full size guitar. The scale length is over an inch shorter than my Taylor T5, but i found it to be no trouble to adapt. The action was very nice, and it has a very big sound. The mahogany version sounded much fuller than the spruce GS mini that I picked up as well. The spruce model was a little twangier and a little ligher sounding, whereas the Mahogany was fuller and more balanced. Both were very comfortable to play.

ETA: And as I said, it sounds and plays better than every one of the lower priced guitars I've owned.

Is that the one with the bolt on neck? If so, yeah I tried one out one time in a store and was impressed with how it played and sounded.

I played my nephew's last night. Damn, what sweet action. Easy to fret, wonderful harmonics with lots of sustain.

Fantastic guitar, no wonder the big name performers play them on stage.

Definitely on my short list.



Especially with my little midget arms.
