The GA-Mini is a short scaled ¾ sized grand auditorium guitar. It benefits from all the key characteristics of a long scale Grand Auditorium guitar but offers the advantages of a short scale guitar. It’s an easy playing, fun and accessible guitar with a full bodied steel string sound.
The Grand Auditorium guitar is considered a modern shaped mid sized guitar. Although it has similar depth and lower bout as the dreadnought guitar it has a slimmer waist. This makes playing the guitar sat down more comfortable while still producing a large vibrant sound. It is widely considered to be a great all round guitar, easily handling both finger picking and strumming styles.
What are the benefits of a Short Scale Length?
A guitar scale length is the distance between the nut and saddle. A scale length shorter than 62cm (25.4 inches) is generally considered to be a short scale. A short scale guitar is tuned to the same pitch as a long scale guitar but requires less string tension. In effect the string is looser and more elastic. Playing notes and chords requires less pressure from your fretting hand making it a little easier on your fingers to play. Shorter scale length guitars have a shorter total neck length than a long scale guitar making it easier for smaller players to reach the entire length of the guitar neck.
