Bass

We’ve made the acoustic bass more approachable than ever by designing the GS Mini Bass, a scaled-down instrument with an inviting feel and rich bass tone.
Bass

Building a bass guitar typically requires a longer scale length than a regular guitar — usually between 32 and 35 inches. Between the longer neck length and expanded fret spacing, this makes a bass physically cumbersome for many people to play. Even short-scale basses require a scale length of about 30 inches to produce bass frequency notes. But thanks to Taylor design innovation, we’ve put the bass-playing experience within reach of everyone with the GS Mini Bass, a compact acoustic bass featuring a hand-friendly 23-1/2-inch scale length. The condensed fret spacing, a comfortably slinky string feel, and natural-sounding bass tone add up to an open invitation for everyone from kids to seasoned bass players to get their groove on. The secret: custom-designed strings and a breakthrough Taylor-patented bridge pin design. Playing acoustic bass has never been so easy.
