Summary: If you are used to playing a Martin, (Little Martin or Dreadnaught) then you may have some problems with this guitar. It is very difficult to play with a higher than needed bridge and nut. I'm having to re-design both to get the strings down where I can do something with this guitar.
Summary: This is the best guitar I've ever played and I've owned a few more costly ones, and plenty in the same price range. This one just "fits" me - scale length & body dimensions, neck radius and nut width. As a female player with small hands and shorter arms, that is important to me.
Summary: I've owned this guitar for 8 months now and it has become my primary pick up and play guitar. I also installed the K&K Pure Western Acoustic Guitar Pickup (mini) instead of the GS Mini sound hole pickup.
Summary: Backround; I have been playing acoustic guitar for over 30 yrs now. 5 yrs ago my wife purchased a Little Martin for me for my birthday as a travel guitar. After two days I traded up to the Big Baby Taylor due to the small sound and jangly high end of the Martin.
Summary: I've got several guitars including a mahogany Baby Taylor and a 2003 Fall Limited 314CE Koa. When on travel, hanging around the patio, going to friends or at the campfire I'm always faced with the question of which guitar.
Summary: Had a baby Taylor but wanted more sound out of a travel guitar. I also have a full-size Taylor Grand Concert, so I wanted a small guitar with a little better sound. The mini GS is so much better than the baby taylor...... and I have been a huge advocate for the baby taylor for years.
Summary: After listening to numerous samples of the GS Mini on Youtube and reading some reviews, I decided to go ahead and order one. The main reason for my purchase is that I'm 55 years old and my body is wracked with severe arthritis.
Summary: This is my first decent guitar and I am consistently awed by the warm and rich tones that swirl within. They say that buying a good guitar won't instantly make you a better player but I'm convinced otherwise.
Smooth as silk. Like an old blues parlor guitar but better!
