Inspired by memories of writing songs on her own Baby Taylor, Taylor Swift collaborated with Taylor Guitars to design the 2012 Taylor Swift Baby Taylor 3/4 Size Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar. Based on their compact ¾-scale Dreadnought, the TSBT is crafted from a resilient sapele laminate body with a solid Sitka spruce top. Swift's custom, screen-printed rosette design features the word "Love" three times among a delicate vine motif. The personalized design also features her signature above the bridge. With a slim 1 11/16-inch neck and a compact shape, the guitar is just right for a young player's hands and anyone who likes to pick up and play on the go.
Body Length: 15 3/4" / Body Width: 12 1/2" / Body Depth: 3 3/8"
A ¾-size Dreadnought that's big on tone.
A ¾-scale Dreadnought, the Baby Taylor is designed to yield a ton of volume for its small size. A laminated sapele back is pressed into a slight arch, providing strength and helping produce the Babys full, rich tone. Its also remarkably versatile for special applications, whether played in alternate tunings or high-strung; with a capo or a slide. And its the perfect travel companion or starter guitar for young kids.
Used On: The 100 Series, GS Mini, Baby, Big Baby
While the rich tones of solid wood remain unmatched, laminates can yield great sound in a beautiful, durable and affordable instrument. Such is the case with sapele laminate, in which Taylor uses interior and exterior veneers of sapele with a filler layer between them. One of the benefits of laminates for guitars is extra resilience in the face of fluctuating humidity conditions. This comes in handy for guitars like the GS Mini and Baby Taylor models, which are travel-friendly guitars that may be more directly exposed to different environments. All Taylor laminate models do feature a solid wood top to optimize the tonal response.
