Discover the Difference a Taylor Guitar Can Make!

The three-fourths-size Baby Taylor, with a solid mahogany top, makes a great-sounding traveling companion. The larger Big Baby (15/16 of full-size) has a spruce top and plays like a grownup. Both feature layered backs and sides and come with a gig bag to help you get around.

Taylor Guitar Baby Mahogany
At a 3/4-scale, the Baby Taylor is the little Dreadnought that could. Taylor's ultra-portable travel mate belies its size with a sweet, full voice and great tone. It's remarkably versatile for special applications, whether played in alternate tunings or high-strung; with a capo or a slide. And it's the perfect starter guitar for young kids.

An alternate version of the original Baby Taylor substitutes a solid mahogany top, giving this 3/4-size dreadnought a dark, attractive complexion and a mid-range boost.

Taylor Guitar Baby Mahogany Wood
A mahogany top adds extra mid-range punch, often described as a "bluesy edge," to the tone of the Baby Mahogany.

Taylor Guitar Baby Body Type: 3/4 Size Dreadnought
At 3/4 the scale of a full-sized Taylor Dreadnought, the body of a Baby Taylor is compact yet still full on tone.

Taylor Guitar Baby Finish: Varnish
A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch.

I love my Taylor Baby Mahogany!

I just love my beautiful Taylor Baby Mahogany acoustic guitar! It is beautifully made, and it sounds wonderful. It's better than I expected. I have been taking lessons and I have been playing a classical style guitar. I love it but I don't have long fingers and my fingers aren't super flexible so I have struggled with this. My instructor suggested I find a smaller guitar. I did a lot of shopping on-line comparing guitars. I finally chose this one and I am so glad I did! I am also glad I shopped at Sweetwater. I liked it that the customer can view the individual guitars and choose the one they want. I loved it that they e-mailed me photos of my guitar from all angles before I received it. And I loved the way it arrived, double packaged for protection, and in a beautiful and rugged soft case. I would definitely shop Sweetwater again, and I will recommend it to my friends.

Dynamite comes in small packages

This little gem arrived exactly when my great sales engineer Bob F. said it would.I was a little taken aback by its diminutive size (more like a big uke than a guitar), but when I started playing it,I couldn't believe such big sound coming from this little guy!This is the perfect traveling guitar.No tweaking was needed.Ready to play right out of the box.Can't say enough good things about my contact Bob.Made me feel like family..Excellent follow up from beginning to the end of the sales process.Sweetwater, you've won me over.Bob Taylor, nice job on this baby!

Beautiful Guitar

I'm in my 50s and was looking for a good beginner guitar. My friend has the baby Taylor and I was very impressed with it. I have small hands, so this is perfect for me. Being a woman, looks are important to me and this baby is so cool I just don't wanna stop looking at it. I like the way Sweetwater shows you every individual guitar so that you can pick the one that really appeals to you. Customer care is awesome and I love that they completely inspect the guitar before they send it to you.
