Taylor's Tecate-made guitars are among the best bang-for-your-buck instruments anywhere, and the 100-series really lead the charge on this. The 114e listed here is only $629, which puts it just $100 over the GS Mini. Not only does this guitar include a pickup (not standard on the GS Mini), but with a full Grand Auditorium body and a solid Sitka top, the 114e boasts a full tone and playability that are pretty much unheard of at this price point.
If you're thinking about a good entry-level guitar that still sounds great, look no further than this model. It's a winner.
