Baby travels well

I really like the mahogany sound and electronic option for recording. I have the spruce Baby and also GS mini. The babies travel to the mountains with me when camping and the minis like it on the back deck or front porch. Love my Taylors!

Great little guitar, better than expected!

Received my new Baby Taylor Mahogany from Sweet Water, great folks to do business with as usual. I am very impressed with both the guitar and Sweetwater. The guitar has a wonderful sound, better than I would have expected. Shipped to me quickly and as usual Sweetwater goes over each guitar and make sure it works perfectly, something I have come to expect. Glad that I bought the electric baby taylor, really sings when I plug it in. Also very impressed with the construction of the Baby Taylor, first class instrument at a very reasonable price. Will be traveling and picking with this great little guitar. Hoping my granddaughters get interested and you'll hear from me when we need another small guitar or two!

Amazing sound quality!

I never thought that such a tiny guitar could blow me away like this! It sounds just amazing! It has a nice rich tone and sustain and even when I had it delivered to Mexico City, I could tell that it was calibrated, balanced and triple checked before it's shipment.

Nice sound, keeps tune but the on board tuner does not work, I will have to contact company for warranty and this was straight out of the box.
