OVERVIEW

The projection of a dreadnought in a slightly smaller body design with the added bonus of high-quality Taylor electronics.

Conceived as a starter guitar for kids, the lovable Baby Taylor has maintained its enduring appeal in part by being a legitimate musical instrument that anyone can enjoy. The three-quarter-size Dreadnought helped touring musicians like Taylor Swift sketch new musical ideas on the road, and it's been a reliable musical accomplice for travelers seeking inspiration while trekking the world. All Baby Taylor models ship with a durable travel-worthy gig bag made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Tone Woods
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. The arched back of the guitar generates more sound from a small-bodied instrument, and using layered wood back and sides create a sturdy yet receptive platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.  

Electronics
Both the Baby and the Big Baby are available with the Expression System Baby (ES-B) pickup, which incorporates piezo design elements from the flagship Taylor ES2 system. It's powered by an onboard preamp that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner, an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, and Tone and Volume controls. The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium (CR2032) batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use. The ES-B conserves battery life using a standard on/off system that will automatically turn off if left on over 3 minutes. A low battery indicator on the LED display (located on the preamp circuit board) will display an “L” when the battery reaches 4.5 volts.

What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

      Comments about Baby Taylor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This a sweet little baby. I admit, I haven't played the little Martin, which I would expect to be excellent as well. But researching the materials they are both built out of made me lean toward the Taylor. I bought the Baby Taylor w/o having played it either. I knew I could return it if I didn't like it. It's a keeper. From comments from numerous other musicians I know that HAVE played both and other "babies," they all tell me I made the right choice. I have only heard on-line comparisons. They have convinced me as well that Taylor is the one. As with my 814ce, excellent, easy playability. Easy action w/o any buzz. But the tone and especially the PROJECTION are what get me. It's got to be the arched back. Who makes an arched BACK?! In such a small body, it adds enough space inside the body to give that surprising volume. I haven't played it plugged in yet and probably would not in any live setting unless miked by a skilled soundman. Or in the living room. In which case you WILL be heard throughout the house! I'm not a pro. Just a genuinely deep lover of music. I was really wanting to explore the tonal possibilities of throwing a baby guitar into the mix for a long time. Now that I have the Baby Taylor, I AM going to get back into recording and having some fun in the home studio with it. But even if you only play at home for personal enjoyment, the Baby Taylor is, at least for me, so fun and pleasurable that I haven't picked up the 814ce since I got it. I LOVE my baby. She's a sweetie. (P.S. Comes with a high quality gig bag but I would like a hard case for general lugging around, better climate control, etc.)

      Comments about Baby Taylor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The guitar itself was a little smaller than I expected. For its size, the sound is great and clean. Mostly used for practicing in my room unless its plugged in. Tuning is required after almost every song you play. Great feel and easy to move around.
