    That's the one I want, the solid spruce top is a big plus!!!. I can't understand why they don't offer the mahogany with a solid top as well. It would be worth an extra cost for the potential of better sound. Leave the flamed mahogany as all laminate for a lower price point. Oh well, these are just being introduced and I am already whining and bitching

    I have the first version of the Mini. I like it a lot.

    I keep mine in Terz tuning.

    E-tuning is nice, but I required a 2" or 51mm nut, so not sure about the nut width on this one.

    Tie-bridge is an improvement, and back to standard from the pin-bridge.

    I'm not in a hurry to 'upgrade' or replace mine, and have other guitars as well.

    I'll be following this one for sure.

    I have the Mini and I would consider the narrow neck and tie bridge of the Mini II as improvements- but a big "no thanks" on the longer scale. I guess I'd have to special order to get everything I want. Oh wait....

    These appear to have all the same measurements as the Minis they produced to tie in with the Pixar movie Coco. I played one of those in all mahogany and rather liked it, but the laser engravings put me off a bit.

    Might have to break open the piggy bank.

    I'm glad I can contribute to other's GAS problems - I've suffered from it for over 30 years now!!!

    Yes, I have always been intrigued by the Cordoba / Disney Pixar Coco Mini as well. The graphics are a sure throw off to me too, but kids and upcoming grandkids will surely give me an excuse to get one
