Taylor

A perfect travel companion with a Sitka spruce top and full Taylor tone.

The Big Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar is the Baby Taylor’s big sibling, a 15/16-scale Dreadnought with a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides. It boasts a surprisingly full voice, comes with a lightweight gig bag for easy portability, and makes a trusty companion wherever you go — even if it’s just to the couch.

Sapele/Solid Sitka
Laminated sapele backs and sides and a solid spruce top make for crisp and well-defined sound in this versatile mid-priced guitar.

15/16-Size Dreadnought
Measuring just a fraction smaller than a full-size Taylor Dreadnought, the Big Baby is small enough to be a perfect travel companion, yet big enough to be a trusty performer.

      Comments about Big Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar:

      This is a top notch guitar in its price range. Mine has ebony fretboard and bridge and a solid spruce top. It has no binding, but sounds great! Its all you need to play acoustically. Typically you don't get ebony in a guitar in this price range.

      I will have to say that I had to lower the action a little to get it playing more comfortably to my taste. That can be easily done by a luthier, or a DIY guy like me.

      I have had it just over a month. I have had several other acoustic guitars over the years.

      I have gotten a lot of nice compliments from friends on it when I play it. I really wish Taylor would make a fancier, deluxe version of this with binding and maybe a pickup in it. The full scale length and decent body size (about the same size as a classical guitar body) help give it a full tone. It is also very consistent in tone and volume - good highs, mids and lows, and not too thin or too boomy. It responds well to the flatpick or fingerpicking too.

        Comments about Big Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar:

        I bought this riding on the Taylor reputation after reading 12 reviews on Musicians' website and watching several Youtube presentations of the instrument. I have been delighted with it. The action is the easiest of any guitar I have ever had, although all three of my previous guitars have been low-end, low cost instruments. The sound is so bright and full. I did write Musicians customer service about a few of the low strings buzzing when fretted, and they were quick with a clear reply of what my options were to remedy that. I am enjoying playing more than I ever have.

          Comments about Big Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar:

          Acoustics (In my opinion) are very hit and miss. There is very little middle ground. They are either fun to play and sound lovely, or are trash. Fortunately this guitar is the former. Good playability, great tone, and sturdy construction are present in the Big Baby.

          I have played probably 50 or 60 different acoustic guitars in my time, and this one is my second favorite. I've had this guitar for 6 years now, and taken it to several countries and played in front of small crowds, several thousand people in an auditorium, and recorded professionally with it. The only guitar that's ever surpassed it is a 4k+ Martin one of my good friends had. I still prefer the tones of the Big Baby, but his Martin played extraordinarily well.

          When I first got the guitar the tone was bright but not too crisp. After spending some time in the humidity of the Amazon jungle (as well as getting rained on once or twice, oops) the tone deepened out and now it's got one of the best mid-lows I've ever heard. It's perfect for singing against

          The only knock I could make on it is the tune doesn't hold as well as my Carvin. But my Carvin is a very high end, custom instrument and has sperzel locking tuners on it. It still holds better than the average user is probably used to and its only a minor flawed noticed by someone who has spent thousands of hours playing the instrument.

          Bottom line: Unless you have found an acoustic that you have fallen in love with, or want a nylon/12/steel string, buy this guitar. It's an amazing piece of art.

                  Comments about Big Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar:

                  I honestly couldn't be happier with this guitar. I visited my local guitar center looking for a simple acoustic to play around with. I played all day looking at other acoustics. They all sounded to flat or to plastic. Finally the guy there pointed me to this one. I picked it up and played a bit, holy cow, it sounds amazing. I've had it for 6 months now, it stills sounds good, still stays in tune, still very satisfied. I recommend picking one up, it is a solid guitar.

                    My first Taylor was the BBT. I have since puchased a 312ce because I liked the BBT so much. Won't ever sell the BBT or the 312ce. Quality, playability, sound are outstanding. Taylor makes consistantly great guitars no matter which model you choose.

                        I was on the verge of buying a non-laminated 000 size guitar from another manufacturer when I happened to pick this one up and strum it. After 9 months of ownership, the sound continues to improve. I was surprised how quickly the sound deepened after I got it. The design is roughly the size of 000 guitars, but with a curved back, there's more cubic inches inside. Non-glossy design might put some off, but not me. Very easy to play; I follow Taylor's recommendation with light Elixers.

                        This Taylor BBT has surpassed all my expectations. High quality build. Nice even tonal qualities. The neck is smooth and comfortable. Nice projection and loudness. This is my 5th acoustic but my 1st Taylor. Two of my other acoustics were 2 to 2 1\2 times more expensive than this BBT. This Big Baby beats all my other acoustics hands down on playability, tone and fun. If lost or stolen I would replace this guitar without hesitation with the same model. I also want to compliment Musiciansfriend for there outstanding customer service, packaging and shipping. Everything was perfect. I'm definitely sold on Taylor guitars and Musiciansfriend.
