No, your eyes aren't deceiving you - Taylor Guitars have actually managed to fit the huge sound of a bass guitar into the compact, ergonomic size of the company's wildly popular GS Mini. A feat of musical engineering, the GS Mini-e Maple Bass seems to have a much bigger and more resonant sound than seems possible, with thumping lows and a clean, rounded tone that's made it an instant favorite among bassists who want great acoustic sound without having to play a larger instrument, or for smaller people interested in learning how to play bass to whom the instrument's long scale length proves a challenge. But it's more than just a fun idea: it features all of the excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail Taylor have become famous for, making it a professional grade instrument in addition to a novel one. The GS Mini-e Maple Bass features a solid spruce top with a maple veneer on the back and sides, for a sleek look equal parts modern and classic. It comes with a Taylor ES-B pickup pre-installed, so should you decide to use this instrument in a live setting, you can be sure to get a great, natural sound when it's plugged in. Finally, the GS Mini-e Maple Bass includes a deluxe Taylor gig bag, for a nice middle ground between protection and portability.
