Taylor GS Mini Guitar Review

Taylor GS Mini Guitar Review

Well what can you say about the Taylor GS Mini Guitars, the Taylor GS mini has come along way over the years and proved itself to be one of the best 3/4 size or compact Acoustic Guitars on the market, since it's launch in the late 90's the little GS Mini has gained respect from thousands of players worldwide thanks to its rich full tone, easy playabilty, affordability and compact size.

Despite it's smaller body size the little GS manages to excel at producing a full rich tone that you'd expect to hear from a much larger acoustic Guitar. The GS handles all playing styles very well and is evenly balanced in it's tonal output.

The Taylor GS mini construction features a solid top using either Mahogany, Spruce or Koa depending on the model, they all feature a layered unbraced back which really helps to improve the bass, volume output and warmth. The Fretboard and Bridge are both made from Ebony giving and edge of quality and feel. The GS Mini range also comes equipped with a Taylor soft case which offers plenty of protection, and great for transporting your Guitar.

The Taylor GS Mini range currently consists of three main models, the GS Mini Mahogany, GS Mini e Walnut and the GS Mini e Koa, the GS Mini Mahogany is a pure Acoustic Guitar, though if needed you can install a Taylor ES Go pickup system fairly easily. The Taylor GS Mini e Walnut and the Koa are both Electro Acoustic Guitars that feature Taylor's own ES-B Onboard preamp/pickup system, the ESB also features an onboard tuner which is always very useful.

Overall a great range of Guitars that you should definately check out, whether it's your first Guitar, Busking, Travel Guitar or just something fun to play on the couch at home, the GS Mini Guitars should be on your Guitar list.

2017 Ibanez Guitars

2017 Ibanez Guitars

The 2017 Namm show is now over and we've seen many new interesting Guitars and equipment released for this year, though my personal favourite is the 2017 range of Ibanez Guitars, the 2017 product range looks really well thought out with some great new eye catching finishes on the RG range, particulary the RG6PCMLTD and the RG1070PBZ look absolutely stunning. Ibanez Guitars are not just for playing Metal, Ibanez offer some top notch semi hollow Guitars and have also introduced some stunning new Artstar models, Hollow body Jazzers aswell as some great new concepts on their Bass Guitar range, not to mention the new Acoustic Guitar finishes, it seems for 2017 there really is something for everyone on the Ibanez range.
