Francisca Valenzuela Plays the Taylor GS Mini Mahogany

For years, the Taylor GS Mini has inspired guitar players of all styles and skill levels with its portable frame and bold musical punch. For Taylor player and singer-songwriter Francisca Valenzuela, her GS Mini Mahogany is a constant source of creativity, a reliable songwriting partner as well as a performance guitar with a big enough voice to sound great in any scenario. A shorter scale length and compact body contours give the GS Mini Mahogany an intimate, accommodating feel that makes fretting and strumming a breeze for any player, and the solid mahogany top serves up a woody tonal character that sounds great when recorded through a microphone or the included pickup.
