High quality, playability and great sound.
Philomusos, 22.10.2020
As a guitarist for about forty years, I felt the desire to enjoy the deep sound of the bass and especially the double bass without great stretches of the fingers and joints, combined with a huge musical instrument which is difficult to carry/transport.

Taylor company created the GS mini-e series which is a super shortscale acoustic bass in parlor guitar size. It wears special strings that one needs to get used to. So there is a limit since you can not experiment as with a conventional acoustic or electric bass changing brands, types and different materials of strings. But this is the only compromise you have to make. This instrument produces a great sound that resembles upright bass, is extremely comfortable to play and easily portable.

I chose the version with koa wood because in various demos I watched and heard, I liked it not only aesthetically but also acoustically. If you want to enjoy GS mini properly through the pickup, you need an amplifier for acoustic (not electrical) instruments.

Amazing bass guitar. It sounds so warm by itself. Sounds better than most 4/4 acoustic basses.
