Taylor GS Mini

Takamine GD20-NS


+ Small enough to travel with, yet big enough to handle comfortably
+ Perfect size for all musicians, especially people with shorter fingers and smaller arms
+ Made of all mahogany, the best wood for acoustic guitar production

+ Wide frets for easier chord transitions and reduced string confusion
+ Cedar and mahogany for the ultimate wood combination for durability and beautiful sound
+ Natural satin finish


It’s hard not to like an acoustic guitar that’s travel size with the voice of a full-sized one. Very rarely will you find a guitar that matches the smallness of the GS Mini with the bold sound it produces.

With wider frets, this acoustic guitar is an excellent choice for anyone who has trouble switching chords. Sometimes strings get unintentionally pressed, so we felt that this fretboard was a great solution!
