    Default NGD.....Taylor GS mini

    They say confession is good for the soul.........I am a traitor.......I bought a guitar and I love it. It is a Taylor GS mini-e spruce and walnut, comes with Taylors ESB pick up.

    A little background, I'll try to keep it short. About 12 years ago I attempted to learn to play acoustic guitar. I had never played any kind of musical instrument in my life, nothing in school and no one in my family played anything. So I bought a guitar took a few lessons did the internet thing and made very little progress, I was a golf addict back them so ALL my time was golf, golf, golf.

    Fast forward three years ago I bought a ukulele became addicted, played a lot and actually can make music now. I still had a love for the steel string acoustic sound, bought a Blueridge tenor guitar and really enjoyed it. I kept the Larrivee L-01 I bought 12 years ago, but it is SOOO huge.

    The Taylor GS mini has gotten great reviews and is a compact guitar, same size as the Blueridge but with a big guitar sound. It is comfortable for me to sit down with and play, the fretboard length and body size are quite manageable. It really does sound great and the pickup system is excellemt with a nice natural sound. Below are some pictures. One shows my Larrivee, Taylor, Blueridge tenor guitar, LFDM and Kamaka baritone ukes for size comparison .

    Congrats Dave! Very nice addition. Really appreciate the comparison photos. I think size is really important - it has to be comfortable. Enjoy.

    Excellent choice. IMHO, Taylor is the best in this size range. Tone and volume are top notch, not to mention construction quality. And Taylor is a company with integrity.

    Dave, I have the hog version and love it. After many years of playing uke, I found the transition to guitar not so hard. I still play uke now and then but I'm about 60% guitar now and 30% mandolin. Love those steel strings
