Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar Hands-On Review

September 29, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Taylor GS Mini Acoustic GuitarTaylor Guitars has been successfully producing its Baby Taylor model for almost 15 years, so it’s safe to say that it’s an unqualified success. But the folks at Taylor just can’t leave well enough alone, and so when they approached the idea of re-imagining a smaller guitar, they kept the twin pillars of the Baby’s winning architecture in mind: portability and great sound.

Enter the GS Mini, a scale version of Taylor’s Grand Symphony line that adheres to the lessons learned in the Baby while boasting greater projection, a full NT neck, and a pickup option. First, the GS Mini remains portable. Compared to the Baby, the GS Mini is longer overall (35-5/8” vs. 33-3/4”), slightly wider (14-3/8” vs. 12-1/2”), and slightly deeper (4-7/16” vs. 3-3/8”). Virtually any space that can accommodate a Baby (overhead bin, overstuffed car hatch, etc.) will also fit GS Mini. Second, though the GS Mini is only slightly bigger with regard to dimensions, in the tonal sense it’s significantly louder than the Baby. In other words, with a negligible enlargement, the guitar’s projection capabilities became exponentially magnified—positively booming! Third, the GS Mini is built to accommodate an easy upgrade path to electrification with an optional user-installable soundhole pickup and with a volume-knob-equipped cord. You don’t have to electrify the GS Mini, but if you choose to do so, you can purchase the pickup separately and install it yourself. Let’s see what makes this Mini so mighty. Read more

Gibson Angus Young SG Hands-On Review

September 27, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The SG is one of Gibson’s most iconic models, and many famous players are closely associated with it—including Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, Cream-era Eric Clapton, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, System of a Down’s Daron Malakian, and of course Pete Townshend. But perhaps no guitar/artist pairing in Gibson’s history is more iconic than that of the SG and Angus Young of AC/DC. Whether he’s duckwalking across the stage in his schoolboy uniform, ripping out immortal riffs, or head-bobbing while thrashing out searing blues-based solos, it’s almost impossible to picture Angus without his trusty Gibson SG Standard.
