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.
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.
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 Music Experience, 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.
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.
Thanks to breakthrough Taylor design, the GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of our 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 our friends at D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with our 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 our ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.
