The GS Mini-e Koa Bass is an endlessly playable, fun (yet professional) small-scale acoustic bass guitar that is effortless on the hands, lightweight and super comfortable.
Despite its size, this parlor size member of the world-wide popular GS Mini family is able to create natural sounding bass tones despite having a 10 inch shorter scale length than a traditional 4 string instrument, partly thanks to the unique nylon core strings and dual prong bridge pin design that firmly anchor the strings and encourage maximum resonance between string, bridge and soundboard.
The rich figuration of climate resilient layered koa back and sides, with the stunning, rich grained solid koa top, enable a clear and punchy sound - with loads of low-end growl yet remaining articulate enough to carry a broad frequency content even with the most delicate of playing.
Slinky to the hands with a smooth neck that plays effortlessly right the way up the fretboard, from children looking for a gateway to an instrument that they would be physically unable to hold in full scale, to the professional 4 string slinger looking to experiment or the 6 string guitarist who is looking to track demos whilst pursuing a more familiar, pain free playing experience with zero learning curb - the GS Mini-e Koa Bass with high end ES-B electronics and sturdy, durable hard case, will sound great wherever you take it, be that the stage, studio, jam session, beach or tour bus.
