This is a GS mini. It's a bit difficult to classify because it's small enough to be a travel guitar yet maybe big enough to sound like a good 000 esque fingerpicking guitar too. Made in Mexico I believe but you wouldn't even know if you played it.
There's no cutaway considering the size of this thing but it's not really meant for something like that anyway. It's a small body, quite comfortable, and yet thick so the tone is still quite good.
The ES-GO pickup is quite convenient. Taylor made pickup that takes 5 minutes to put in and screw in and you're done. Very cool.
For the size, it's quite thick! Most guitars approximately the same size usually sound thin and do not project. These GS minis are very suprisingly good, there's a lot of depth to the sound and it can project quite well. Of course it's nothing compared to a full size dreadnought guitar but for it's class of guitars it's quite good. I would basically consider this to be one of the best sounding travel guitars out there.
It's thick and deep and projects.
A very unique guitar. Great for travelling with good quality sound. Or if you're one of those players whose got tons of different acoustics and wants to try something different and a little bit unique this may be it for you. I'd say it's good as a guitar to leave out and fiddle with on the couch sorta deal. For the price, including a custom gig bag and taylor made acoustic pickup? Pretty sweet deal I'd say!
