Unexpectedly awesome!!!

By GuitarGirl74

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

When my teacher recommended Taylor Big Baby, I wondered why I had to. I was happy with my acoustic electric worth $400 and wasn't willing to change. But out of curiosity, I visited the nearest guitar center to check it out. I played a bit and it sounded UNEXPECTEDLY BIG!!! I didn't have any more apprehensions and bought it. It really sounds like thousands worth of a guitar! And because of its reasonable price, I was even able to complete all the guitar accessories I wanted to get! Check it out! GREAT GUITAR!!

Taylor Big Baby

By Gerray West

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

I have played a Taylor Big Baby outfitted with an L.R. Baggs I-Beam for about 3 years now, in a live worship situation. This is an amazing instrument, considering the price, and the size. It sounds BIG! I use NO processing at all, just board EQ, and this little guy handles every curve I've thrown at it! Capo'd, detuned, really hard strumming, and even light picking, it just responds. For years I dreamed of owning a full size Taylor, and honestly, this matches the sound of the big boys.

Beautiful Guitar - Amazing Sound

By TaylorMan01

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

This is a great guitar for any level of playing- beginner or pro. After trying out lots of different guitars (around this price range) this was by far the easiest to play and best sounding! I play in a band and actually installed a fishman pickup for this guitar and it sounds great amplified. I hope to see myself playing this guitar 50 years from now and still expect the same great, classic tone that Taylor provides!

The Big Baby is no baby when it comes to sound.

By IveGotTheBlues

from Boston, MA

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

I bought this guitar as a cheap travel/mess around guitar abecause I was sick of lugging around my big acoutic electric. When I bought this guitar, I did not think that in the end I would be playing it much more than my thousand dollar acoustic. The sound quality is excellent and this guitar is definatly the best buy for the price, you will love this guitar.

BABY NOTHING!

By SurgicaL

from Ohio

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

I have been playing a borrowed Ovation for the past 3 years.....I decided it was time to stop leeching and get one of my own! Normally I research online thoroughly before stepping foot into a store with any major purchase, but with an acoustic I did not want to read reviews and have a certian bias going into it.... I took my wife with me and had her flip over the price tage before she handed me each guitar. I spent aboubt 6 hours over a weeks time playing different acoustics. Cost was not an option (within reason) I could not easily identify them at a glance because I was not all too familiar with them. After a week I had narrowed it down to 3 guitars. One was the Yamaha FG730S. The second was a Taylor 110-E. The last was the Taylor BIG BABY! IMHO the action on the Yamaha was not up to par with either of the Taylors and sounded too bassey. I have to admit I did like the 110-E a TAD better than the Big Baby but the Big Baby fits my body size much better being just a tad smaller. It is also full scale so no loss there. The 110 is also a lot more. I could not justify the extra money at the time for the 110 so I put the Big Baby in layaway to think about it. To my surprise I found VERY similar reviews to the one I am writing right now on the Big Baby. This confirmed that my instincts were correct, even after I did a semi-blind comparison including a multitude of guitars. Do not hesitate to purchase the Taylor Big Baby. For a self taught home/campfire hobbyist (or anyone for that matter) you simply can not go wrong with it. At $399 it rivals many $700-$1200 acoustics. The only thing I would add is a pickup....(hence the 4.5 features rating)which I may do an endpin style in the future.. Whats this business about it being ugly? I think its a work of art.....and even if you DO think it's ugly, who the heck cares? No acoustic is going to win first prize at an art show!

Sweet Baby !

By DC Campbell

from New York, NY

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

I was shopping in Guitar Center for some Auralex, Bass traps really, when I came across this Guitar. So I told myself I would not buy it; Man that guitar almost broke me. I played her and she was the sweetest thing I've ever touched.The body is like silk. The fret board played nicely and didn't bite back. The feel is light which is cool. But her sound was like that of a $2000 Taylor. SWEET MAN!!! I would most definitely gig with this guitar. I almost cried when I didn't buy it.

Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought

By claptonfan55

from Wayland, MI

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

My dad bought this guitar a couple months back. He doesn't really do much with it now, but I play around with it sometimes. I really like it a lot. The neck plays great, and the tone is to die for! This guitar fits me in size pretty well, too, as the body size is reduced. It stays in tune nicely, as well. I would definitely gig with this guitar without question.

Couldn't Put It Down

By Frank Colosimo

from mechanicsburg, pa

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

I stopped by a local store this morning just looking. Actually don't need another acoustic, but picked this up and couldn't believe it. The sound and tone is tremendous. Pick up anything else, whatever the price, and this will compare, if not outshine it. I have made up my mind that I have to have one.

I Could Not Find an Acoustic Guitar I Liked Better for Under $1000

By Justin

from Tolland, CT

Comments about Taylor Big Baby Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (2011 Model):

I picked my Big Baby up while waiting for the salesperson to find the guitar I thought I wanted and could not believe how rich the sound was. From there I tried nearly every acoustic priced under $1000 and kept coming back to the Big Baby. In the two hours I was there two other people came in looking for it and luckily I was playing it. The action and sound are unbelievable and I still have not found an acoustic I like better. Taylor got every detail perfect, right on down to the Elixir strings it came with and at a bargain price. Try it and you will see.
