Most Profound Guitar For Your Money

By Matthew Reece

from Berea Ohio

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

I recently have been shopping around for a new acoustic guitar. I often find myself playing the 2000 dollar and above guitars for fun and when i came across this i could not put it down. By far the easiest to play and easily comparable to the more expensive. Ive since been there numerous times for hours at a time playing just this model. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

Are you sure it's 15/16 scale?

By Avery

from Brooklyn, N

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

I've played 4 guitars, two acoustic, one bass, one being over 35 years old, and I've been playing actively for over 6 years. This guitar gives extremely articulate sound in all ranges of pitch, sustains both deep lows and loud harmonics, and is extremely easy to play with 12s because its action is very low. My only complaint is if you strum absurdly hard you will get a slight buzzing on the bass notes, but you shouldn't be strumming that hard anyway. It will happen less when I switch to 13 gauge strings and have higher tension. I use this to play fingerstyle and often detune as far as a low B, but tapping, harmonics and other difficult techniques are simple to do on this model. The wood is high quality and seems to be the same (if not similar) type that is in more expensive models. This guitar stands over others in its range for this clear POP is gives. Great for slapping strings. I suggest you TRY IT OUT IN THE STORE. My model was fine, but another I tried had a slightly bowed neck, raising the action and messing up the intonation. The wood resonates well and if you treat it right it will age very well. If you live far from a lake or in a dry area, consider a humidifier as I heard dry weather can be an issue for this guitar.

Great Quality

By Jake

from Castle Rock CO

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

I purchased a similar Taylor (the BBS to be exact) and was very surprised with its huge sound. I would easily compare the sound quality of this guitar to a 1,000 dollar guitar. If you are looking for a great guitar and don't want to break the bank, this guitar is by far the best one out there.

Beautiful... Everything you could want

By Bella

from Denvevr, Co

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

So, for christmas I asked for a guitar. So, my dad and I went to the Guitar Center to look at them and try them out. I only know three chords on the guitar, so every time i picked one up... I played those three chords. My price range was around $300, but I saw the Big Baby and thought that looks cute, picked it up, held it in my hand and played my three chords. It was like magic! This guitar just felt wonderful in my hands. I fell in love. The neck is really slim and fit right in my hand.. People usually tell me I have "delicate, little hands" and I guess I do, it was hard to reach my fingers around some of the guitars I picked up and this one was perfect. I tried many guitars after that and none of them compared. Something clicked with this guitar and after putting it down, someone else picked it up and played the most beautiful song I ever heard... My dad knew that I wouldn't be satisfied with any other guitar and even after just trying those really REALLY expensive guitars, my heart was still set on this Taylor. I am happy to be the future owner of one of these big babies. They are amazing. And no review will tell you otherwise. Buy it.

Worth every penny

By Derek Farmer

from Old Fort, NC

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

The only reason I give this guitar 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of decoration on the guitar. If you give more weight to playability than looks, this guitar is all you could ever want. This was the first guitar I ever purchased in 2001 and I see no need to buy another. I have yet to hear any guitar even remotely close in price that sounds as bright and full as this guitar. A fellow member of my band plays an 814 Grand Auditorium-when I won't let him play my Big Baby! This guitar is definitely worth checking out before you spend 4,5, or even 6 times the money!

The Best

By Holden

from Greensboro, NC

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

I work for Guitar Center and this is the acoustic guitar I recommend to EVERY customer I speak with regarding a new acoustic. It's size is amazing, the sound is full, projecting and absolutely beautiful. It's lightweight and the neck just feels amazing. If you're looking for a new acoustic, pick this one up.. I guarantee you will not want to put it down. Take my advice!

Was just looking...

By Ryebread

from Lexington, SC

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

I new about the Big Baby but I thought it was a "sub-par" instrument made to be affordable so you could say "I own a Taylor". Once I started strumming this thing I couldn't put it down. People walked in and I started playing louder like I was on stage. WOW!!! So now I had to see what those axes on the wall with the 4 digit price tags had to offer? I honestly couldn't find one that played or sounded better. Then I found myself unable to keep my hands off of this one. Unfortunately I wasn't prepared to buy this guitar but then the guy mentioned "lay-away". I'll be back next week to pick it up and I don't think I will be able to sleep until I do.

Love my Big Baby!

By Kevin

from St. Louis, MO

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

This guitar sneaked up on me when I was shopping for a Martin. It was $300 less than the instrument I had in mind but when I played it, there was no going back. I went through every acoustic in the store and nothing sounded so sweet as this one. The 15/16 size and unique, nearly flat neck are a perfect fit, which makes it easy to play. I'm thinking about deep-sixing the acoustic-electric I now use on gigs and playing my Big Baby into the condenser mic I use for my mandolin. This has got to be the best value in a guitar I've ever seen. I hope Bob Taylor never finds out what a gem this guitar is and raises the price!

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.

Solid guitar

By tom

from cleveland ohio

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

I started playing with my brother's big baby now i have one of my own and it has proven to be my favorite guitar for the past 4 years. I also have a Martin and Ovation and they dont compare to the playability of this guitar. It is large enough for great sound yet it fits very comfortably in your lap. the neck is as solid as a rock and needs very few adjustments. This is a great buy and this guitar will last a lifetime.
