My New Mini

While we were in Charleston, I found a guitar store that carried a small-bodied guitar I'd been looking at online.

It's called a Taylor GS Mini. It's a high-end student guitar, much better than something you would pick up at Walmart, anyway. I'd been checking forums online and the Taylor had been highly recommended as having a clear, crisp sound considering its size. If you follow the link, you'll see it's not that expensive for a guitar.

However, I wanted to play one before I made the purchase. I seized the opportunity while we were out of town, and ended up buying it.

The guitar has a different look than most western-style instruments. This one has a mahogany color. It sounds nice, though it has taken me a while to adjust to the smaller fret board.



My new little baby.


My new baby next to my Takamine classical parlor-sized guitar. It's just a little smaller than it's older sister. Note
the difference in the size of the neck and the fret board.

Many guitars come in what they call a "dreadnaught" size. I simply can't play them well because I can't hold them. I also have trouble reaching around them because I have problems with my back. They are big guitars.

This little mini seems to be working out well, and I am playing more. That was the goal, to play more. I used to enjoy making music but had let that get away from me during life's other pursuits. Now I'm hoping to return making lovely sounds.

  1. Glad to hear you are making music once again. I have been considering the purchase of a Dulcimer and learning to play.
