I absolutely love my Taylor 717, but she’s a heifer and not at all a couch guitar. She’s also rather precious and I don’t want to travel with ‘er. So after some hunting I found a nice looking mahogany GS Mini demo for $539 and one of those coupons for 10% off actually worked! All told $485 to my door, and near as I can tell there are no blemishes from its time as a demo. Didn’t take any time at all to adjust to the shorter scale from a full length, in fact “Shape of my Heart” is MUCH easier to work on with this shorter scale. It’s a nice small guitar that has a larger voice than you might expect for its size. I’ve seen streaked fretboards I like better, but I like this one too. Overall, I’m stoked!
