    Hi @Dirk_R I, too, have shoulder problems. Instead of surgeries, I opted for physical therapy. It helps. Not only rotator cuff issues for me, but also a ruptured biceps tendon on my fretting arm (surgery no longer an option for me). I struggle at times with my Taylor dreadnought, because of it’s size and weight, but I still manage to play. I recently bought a Martin D-Jr, primarily as a travel guitar. It’s lighter, comfortable, and fun to play. It’s 4/5 the size of a full size dreadnought, so it’s a little bit bigger than the Taylor GS mini. I like that! Additionally, it has a 1 3/4” nut, which is the same as my Taylor dreadnought. The GS mini has a smaller nut. I prefer a wider neck. You may need to shop around, spend some time visiting different music stores, play a few different models, and figure out what’s the best fit for you. I hope you’ll share your choice of instrument. Best wishes to you, and good luck. 🙂
