This is, without a doubt, the best option if you are looking for a traveling companion. With a volume and timbre that surprise for their small dimensions (3/4 the size of a full-size guitar). Whether it is for small hands or for small spaces, the Baby Taylor simply convinces.
This Taylor Big Baby instrument is, in turn, portable, playable and affordable. It offers impressive volume and tone thanks to its compact three-quarter scale. It is no coincidence that for its comfort and its tonal quality. Artists such as Lindsey Buckingham, Bono and Taylor Swift have used a Baby Taylor guitar to write their songs, record them and play them.
A resounding success
Since its appearance 20 years ago, the Baby Taylor has been a great success. Its mini size Dreadnought was designed for thousands of children. To start on the guitar path with a Baby in their hands. But also to allow adults to have a guitar for real travel, that is, with a professional sound.
However, the guitarists have reinvented it adapting it to their own needs. And have turned it into an instrument with a unique sound with which to record and play live.
The BT1 has the most used wood as a soundboard today. Its mixture of rigidity and elasticity results in a wide dynamic range with a very clear articulation. It adapts to a wide variety of styles of touch.
Dreadnought body A D scale Dreadnought guitar. The Baby Taylor guitar is designed to produce an amazing volume for its small size. A layered sapele back is pressed into a light arch. Providing strength and helping to produce the full and rich tone of the Baby Taylor. It is also remarkably versatile for special applications, whether played with alternating tunings or with high strings.

Body length: 15 3/4”
