Any opinions?

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Rather an apples/oranges thing, isn't it? The GS is a 500 dollar small-sized instrument with a laminate back and sides and a short scale.
It's wildly popular and considered a bargain for the money....

I just looked up the Cort and it's a 1500 dollar solid-wood dreadnaught "special edition". Likely a very nice instrument... If you're looking for a dread and have the bucks....

Are you sure about the Cort? I'm getting it for around $400.

I see... Like many other firms they are releasing several versions of that instrument. The deluxe model is the one I pulled up first.
Still, the Cort is a dread. Quite different than the Taylor which is even smaller overall than an OM or OOO-sized instrument.
Mind, I love my GS Mini and use it for everything... But I bought it for the size. Wonky old shoulders couldn't handle a dreadnaught-sized instrument any more.

Given a price similarity, I'd say it comes down to personal preference as to sound. Generally, a dreadnaught is going to be more powerful overall and tend to the bass tones.... That's why they exist.
The little Taylor is pretty well-balanced and makes a fine guitar for fingerstyle if you don't mind the narrow neck. (I don't...) Flatpicks pretty well.... But it's certainly not a traditional "bluegrass" instrument.
