The Taylor GS Mini-e Koa Bass delivers an amazing amount of low end rumble in a tiny package that’s compact, lightweight and easy to play. This bass has a 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. This short scale works because of the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed in partnership with D’Addario. With the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone’s hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players craving a couch-friendly option. It’s an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with our ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.
