NGD Taylor GS mini

Went to GC today to look at some SG's and whatever else they had. I've been gassing for a small body acoustic for awhile and they had the Taylor GS mini in both mahogany and Sitka. I played both and ended up leaving with the mahogany one.

Congrats, they are great little guitars. I got a sitka one soon after they came out, but before the mahogany ones. I love it, but the mahogany are very nice!

Great little guitars. A friend of mine got a sitka and had a mahogany a week later. They have that Taylor sound, as they should.

Iv got one of the limited rosewood back ones and it is amazing for its price and size! Definitely puts out that big acoustic sound..
I played a mahogany one before I bought my rosewood one, I wasn't really impressed. It may have been the dead strings on it but it just didn't have the same shine that the rosewood one had when I played them side by side.
Anyway, much love for the Taylor mini GS!

I wish they had the rosewood for me to try, it might have came home with me instead of the hog. The spruce and the hog, that I tried, both just came out of the box, so the strings were still new and the hog sounded warmer. The spruce sounded a little tinny but still good. I also tried the baby Taylor, the mini Martin, a Yamaha and a Mitchell. All of them except the mini sounded like toys. The Martin wasn't too bad but the Taylor sounded better.

Anyone tried light strings (12's) on theirs? Even with the short scale I find the 13's a bit stiff coming from my electrics.

In actually got 11's on mine at the moment. I needed light strings for a few pieces I was playing at uni.. They are too light though. A bit buzzy and no where near as big and resonant for chord work. Ill be going back to 12's or 13's next

Finally tried the 12's--and light-tension models at that (Newtone Heritage)--and it seems fine. A bit quieter but that's no issue for me.
