If your guitar is stored in an area that routinely registers over 60% relative humidity, you’ll need to use a dehumidifying product to keep it from becoming over-humidified. Bamboo charcoal is a 100% natural product that has been used as a dehumidifier in Asia for more than five centuries. It has a negative ionic charge that attracts excess moisture and odors from the surrounding atmosphere. This guitar dehumidifier set from Ever Bamboo includes three 50-gram pouches that last up to one year. Taylor recommends using one set per guitar.
Formulated using a complex mixture of the finest ultra-refined rare oils to clean, condition and protect your fretboard. 100% free of lemon extracts, waxes, petroleum distillates, detergents and water. It leaves your fretboard looking new, playing great and feeling smooth, never sticky or tacky. 2 fl. oz.
Spray-on cleaning polish softens, lifts, and encapsulates moisture, salt and dust in a protective lubricant that is easily and safely wiped away. The light carnauba wax haze is then buffed away, leaving a beautiful stage-ready shine. 4 fl. oz.

Thanks to breakthrough Taylor design, the GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of Taylor GS Mini family, this four-string bass sibling is even more impressive for its ability to create natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with Taylor friends at D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with Taylor patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And 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 Taylor ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.

This Dreadnought distills the essential features of a great acoustic guitar into a budget-friendly form. Taylor Academy Series was designed with developing players in mind, so the goal was to create as comfortable a playing experience as possible.
