This GS Mini maple bass with built-in electronics (Serial Number 2203020288) is now available to own and enjoy.
The GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. This year Taylor has brought a new model to the mix, featuring richly figured layered maple back and sides. Adding to the popular heritage of the GS Mini family, this four-string bass sibling is even more impressive for its ability to create natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with Taylor's patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And with the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone’s hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players craving a couch-friendly option. It’s an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.
