Taylor expanded their GS Mini series with a new compact bass model called the GS Mini-e Bass. The instrument has a small 23.5-inch scale, which the company explains is about 10 inches shorter than a standard bass guitar. Even with the reduced scale, the bass’s setup creates deep tones.
“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),” Taylor writes. “Together with our patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel.”
The bass is built with a sitka spruce top and layered sapele sides. Its neck is also sapele, topped with an ebony fretboard. Taylor fits the bass with the ES-B pickup and preamp combo, complete with a built-in digital chromatic tuner.
The Taylor GS Mini-e Bass will be available soon with a street price around $699.
