Baby Taylor Guitar Picture!
A Great Kids Acoustic Guitar!
The Baby Taylor guitar isn’t intended for just the youngsters in your family, although some reviews of the Baby say it should be.
The Baby Taylor is a plain and simple three-quarter scale acoustic guitar from one of the world’s most respected names in acoustic guitars.
Taylor aims the instrument at two audiences.
First, they want you to buy it for your children who are just learning to play and can’t reach around a full-size guitar.
Second, they want you to get one for yourself to take on the road when you need something for songwriting but don’t have the space for a regular-sized guitar.
According to some guitar reviews, it’s a better choice for the first application than for the second.
The Baby Taylor is a simply constructed natural-finish instrument with no inlays or ornamentation of any kind.
Its looks are minimalist, but unfortunately, so is its sound.
While Taylor’s website says the Baby model has a “rich, full voice”, the reviews don’t bear that out.
As a beginner instrument for a child or teen, there may be no better choice.
If a child is too young to successfully handle a full-sized guitar and wants to play, no one argues that the baby Taylor is a well-made acoustic guitar.
Taylor’s claim that the Baby model is a perfect fit for songwriters who need something to take with them on the road is a little harder to back up.
The model is very small in the hands of experienced players.
It seems very light and feels like a toy -- despite being much better made that toy guitars.
If you have a little space to spare during your travels, the Big Baby -- almost the size of a regular guitar -- may be a better choice.
While its features are identical, the sounds are bigger, richer and more like you’d expect from a high-quality Taylor instrument.
Both the Baby and the Big Baby are made in Taylor’s secondary Tecate, Mexico plant.
The facility, only 40 miles from Taylor’s main plant in El Cajon, California, is intended to produce instruments for less than it would cost in the United States.
Whether you should buy a small and inexpensive Baby Taylor guitar depends on why you want it.
If you’re looking for something to help you instill a guitar-picking instinct into a little one, don’t hesitate.
But if you need something that will serve you well when you’re traveling, you may want forget what Taylor says and think again.
