Taylor Baby Taylor Mahogany Top Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Features:

  • Solid mahogany top
  • 3/4 scale
  • Sapele arched back and sides
  • Ebony fretboard and bridge
  • Lexan headstock veneer
  • Laser-etched rosette
  • Enclosed die-cast tuners
  • 22-3/4" scale
  • 1-11/16" nut width
  • Taylor gig bag

 

The Baby Taylor travel guitar is exactly what it says. This small three quarter dreadnought size acoustic guitar is made for the road. Its light weight and sturdy build make it ultra portable, and it comes with a gig bag instead of a hard case, so it fits easily in airplane carry-on, or the back seat of a car. As is true to the Taylor name this guitar is well built, with back and sides of sapele mahogany laminate, and choice of a solid sitkaspruce or mahogany front. The spruce lends itself to a quite, simple eloquence, while the mahogany flaunts a darker, richer beauty. With their satin finish both guitars are nice looking little instruments.


The Baby Taylor, like the full size Taylorguitar is quality made. It has an ebony fret board with inlayed pearloid dots, and an ebony bridge. The neck of the guitar is tropical American mahogany. The tuning machines are enclosed, die-cast and chrome plated, and the sound hole rosette is laser etched. It is easy to see that Taylor used the same fine attention to detail when designing this baby guitar as they do with their full scale models.


Sound? Great! And the sound it big for it's size. The mahogany give it a dark, rich tone that has remarkable volume and versatility for its size.

 

It can be difficult to get a travel guitar that compares to the sound of a full size, especially in the base end, but the Baby Taylor performs well.

 

As mentioned, the mahogany is especially proficient at producing richer bass tones. This guitar is also versatile; it can be played high strung, with a capo or a slide and in alternate tunings.


The Baby Taylor might be marketed as a travel guitar. It is great starter guitar for children. Its small size lends itself to smaller hands, and is not as intimidating as a dreadnought. It also holds its value and can be used as a trade in on a larger guitar. It sounds much better than a cheaper $75 guitar, yet is still affordable at $275-$300.

 

So, with this guitar a child can gain true appreciation for finer music, but on an instrument that’s just right for them.


Though the Baby Taylor travel guitar is not considered a specialty instrument for recording or performing, it is completely appropriate for more informal settings. It’s a wonderful instrument to take on those weekend family getaways, or as a child’s first guitar. It holds up well, has a lasting value, and best of all, because it’s a Taylorit comes with great customer service.

 

So is this just for kids or just at home? Not at all. 'E' (Mark Everett) from Eels used on a lot (live) during the Daisies of the Galaxy album / tour.
