A Short-scale A/E Bass Guitar with HUGE Sound
The Taylor GS Mini-e Bass is a fun-to-play acoustic-electric bass. Its compact, small-scale design is lightweight, comfortable, and easy on your hands. Enjoy a direct, punchy tone with plenty of resonance, courtesy of the GS Mini-e Bass's spruce-topped sapele body. Custom nylon-core D'Addario strings optimize this bass's sound. And its level of projection is astonishing when you consider its size. Taylor's ES-B pickup ensures top-notch sound when you plug the GS Mini-e into a PA or your favorite amplifier. The Taylor GS Mini-e Bass is a great acoustic-electric bass for writing, recording, and performing.
Ultra-portable acoustic bass guitar that's easy to play
Taylor's award-winning GS Mini series is a scaled-down version of their ever-popular Grand Symphony guitar shape. The GS Mini-e Bass features a 23-1/2-inch scale length, which makes it comfortable and playable. Kids, beginners, and guitarists who don't normally play bass find it easy to play. Effortlessly pack this tiny instrument into your car, haul it on the subway, or store it in a plane's overhead bin. Perfect for camping, festivals, or even transporting over long distances, the GS Mini-e Bass is a compact acoustic-electric bass that is ready to go where you go.
Custom D'Addario strings optimize this bass's sound
The Taylor GS Mini-e Bass features custom strings designed by D'Addario. Designed exclusively for the GS Mini-e Bass, these strings sport nylon cores that are overwound with coated phosphor bronze wire. And they sound great. At Sweetwater, we love the warm, clear bass that these strings exhibit. And just an FYI — because of the Mini-e Bass’s short scale, these are the only strings that will work with it.
ES-B pickup delivers top-notch plugged-in tone
When you plug the GS Mini-e Bass into a PA or your favorite amplifier, expect killer tone. Its ES-B pickup incorporates design elements from Taylor's acclaimed Expression System 2. A preamp with built-in digital chromatic tuner is onboard. Take control of your sound with Tone and Volume controls. There's also an LED low battery indicator. Two button cell 3V lithium batteries provide about 300 hours of use.
