Overview

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. Mahogany is a hardwood that produces a natural compression, yielding more "roll-in" effect to a note. The compression evens out a lively attack for a more linear response. Mahogany tops deliver strong fundamentals with clear and direct focus. 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.  

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.

It looks small but sounds big

By Mia Flores

from Antelope, California

Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

The Taylor Baby may be small but it's packed with a ton of sound! Like a lot of Taylor's, it has a more bright sound but the bass is great as well. I recommend this for any beginning guitar player and the narrow neck makes it easy for people with small hands (like myself) to form chords. The neck is fairly straight and it being a 3/4 guitar makes it great for travel. I take it everywhere with me since lugging around a full sized guitar is much more work and the baby can hold its own against full sized guitars, so no worries there. Also, when changing the strings I recommend Elixir light strings so you can get that bright sound it's made for. This is the cheapest of Taylor models but is still made with care so when looking for a small guitar, pay attention to quality, not just price.

Baby Taylor great for travel

By BRYAN

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

I moved, needed to replace my travel beater that I sold before I moved. A buddy of mine had one of these and he loved it, I've always liked Taylors, and for a little more than buying a used beater on Craigslist, I got this, brand new, with a high quality gig bag, shipped to my doorstep. This guitar has a great tone, needed no setup, and the first comment from someone I showed it to was a compliment on its mahogany finish...

Cons

  • Tone A Little High

Best Uses

  • Travel

Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar to travel with. It's a beautiful guitar. However, it's tone was a little higher than I wanted because of it's size so I traded up to a 3/4 size Taylor. Really nice guitar.

    Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

    I bought this guitar for my granddaughter, I own five Taylors myself. Yes, you could pay way less for alot of other guitars, but you also get what you pay for. Make no mistake, this is a real instrument. It is built very well, sounds really good, and stays in tune. Is it perfect, of course not. Depending on your preference, you may want to tweak with the action like I did. I like my neck really flat and the strings low at the nut. These were easy adjustments for me to make and no big deal as far as the quality of the guitar. I would definately recommend this guitar if you want a real musical instrument and don't mind paying for for one.

      Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

      I needed a guitar that I could easily take with me to practice when on the road, this Baby Taylor is perfect, not too small for a grown woman and fun to play.
      It sounds great and the gig bag is well designed and sturdy.

      Baby, I love you

      By Walt

      from Central NJ

      Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

      OKAY! brought home a new Baby (Taylor) today. My first impression on my BT2 (mahogany sound board, not spruce): I will be very happy with it as a travel guitar. I A/B'd it with the Martin LX, the LX sounded boxy, honky midrange next to the BT2. The BT2 was a lot smoother, had wider range. GC didn't have the spruce BT1 for comparison, but memory tells me it was too 'Taylor'y: bright, precise: without a full bass response for balance, the spruce sound was a little too trebly. Meanwhile, my 'hog' guitar was a little mellower, deeper (some called it 'dark'). The laminate back was slightly curved, like an ovation, which helped with the projection. (In fact the guitar sounded fuller when some one else played it in front of me.) The 22.75" scale frets were a little tight on the fingers up high. Setup seemed fine out of the box. 33.3" long, 12" wide, its very portable. But size aside, it is eminently playable and good sounding as a solo instrument accompaniment. Finger picking sounded wonderfully warm but articulate, and finger strumming gave a nice full sound. With a pick, individual notes rang out, including the low strings (!). Pick strumming sounded a little noisy and confused, more so the louder you played. BUT REMEMBERING WHY I bought it- strictly as a carry-along guitar- it will never replace a full body instrument in clarity and fullness of tone. But like many other owners had remarked, IT IS FUN to play. (whatever that means!)

          Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

          It's very versatile, because of the mahogany I can play quietly without as much twang. It has a marvelous sound that I prefer to the spruce top, and it's very nice looking. I love playing it at work, and I don't have to worry about spinning around in my chair and bumping into my desk AND it's small enough to have in my lap and type and use the mouse... The first day my boss saw me with it I had it in my lap and I was composing a Visio document, and writing emails, very fun! Now the other guitarists at work are planing on buying one!

            Took up guitar after retirement and found an old full size Harmony F-hole, circa 1967, I had laying around was too big and hard to play. Wanted something smaller and easier to play. This Baby Taylor has an incredible sound for its size. Barred chords are a lot easier to play, too. Very easy to handle. The solid mahogany top wood has a slight vintage look. Still learning, but it makes practicing a lot more enjoyable. Very affordable.

            Comments about Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

            Purchased this guitar a couple of weeks ago and since then, it has been my go to acoustic. i absolutely love it. I'm a small framed female and the smaller size is so comfortable. The sound is not as "full" as a larger acoustic, but it's definitely full enough. My only problem is that I have to tune it every time I play. I've stretched the strings and it still falls out of tune daily. Overall, I still give this 5 stars. I have no complaints. Love the matte finish and the light weight. It's also easier to stretch to reach higher frets due to the shorter neck. This is not just a kids' guitar!
