I didn’t buy the add-in electronics and will at a further date – for now this guitar is for my up coming trip. When I get back I’ll have played the crap out of the GS mini and I’ll will post my thoughts. I probably at that point will add the electronics and see what other dimensions the GS mini can fill.

More to come…
