Taylor Big Baby Taylor - Spruce Top
In Stock!

Discover the Difference a Taylor Guitar Can Make!

The three-fourths-size Baby Taylor, with either solid spruce or 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 Big Baby
The Baby Taylor's big sibling, a 15/16-scale Dreadnought with a solid Sitka spruce top and layered sapele back and sides, boasts a surprisingly full voice, comes with a lightweight gig bag for easy portability, and makes a trusty companion wherever you go - even if it's just to the couch.

Taylor Guitar Big Baby Wood
A solid Sitka spruce top gives the Big Baby top-shelf tone, while the layered sapele adds extra resilience against climatic changes.

Taylor Guitar Big Baby Body Type: 15/16 Size Dreadnought
Measuring just a fraction smaller than a full-size Taylor Dreadnought, the Big Baby is small enough to be a perfect travel companion, yet big enough to be a trusty performer.

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

Great guitar

I love this guitar it sounds and plays great I like the size it's perfect for playing around the house comes with a nice gig bag and is priced right

Love my new BABY Taylor!!!

Fantastic guitar!! Love the sound out of this when it isn't even full scale.. Construction is fantastic. Taylor does not disappoint and neither does SWEETWATER!!!

Found my Ying to my Yang

Great tone! Projects well. Brighter than my Martin D Junior and is a welcomed addition. Besides she is pretty too! Takes two CR2032 batterys to power the built in electronics and tuning is easy to accomplish. Had to buy a sound hole tuner for the Martin. Loved selecting this beauty online from four other Big Baby Taylor's in inventory. The match book looking back and pristine spruce front is eye candy. My sales engineer was only a call away or email. Great value even at the asking price. Nice gig bag. All around, a great travel or parlor guitar that I am enjoying. Sweetwater has put a dream guitar in my hands. Well done!

Love it, pure beauty

I have owned so many guitars, it's stupid. Mostly Taylor and Martins in the $3,000 range each. I was absolutely blown away the first time I played the big baby. You can strum this guitar so hard and it shines incredibly balanced and loud, while also sounding fantastic for fingetstyle, classical, or strum rhythym. There are no unbalanced notes anywhere up the neck, even right on top of the screw heads!!! I love wide fret boards and this one is nicely spaced as well, with ultra low string height and a super thin neck, its really very comfortable. It's so light on your lap and just small enough that you can sit with it in any position and be comfortable, with easy reach all the way to the 14th fret!! I love this guitar so much I am literally about to buy one as a fun party tote around beater. It sounds too good to be treated like that but it's only $400!!! I cannot suggest this guitar enough, both to seasoned guitarists (like myself) and beginners...it's way better sounding than the GS Mini and 1 series.

Big baby Taylor with ES-b pickup

My wife bought me this guitar as a camping guitar. Mymain guitar is the 810ce that we co-lead worship with. I was shocked that this guitar sounded so good; both guitars have the new es2/esb pickups and plugged into the house, the big baby sounded wonderful! The ES-b is a hotter pickup than the ES-2! We have made a couple of recordings with the big baby and it holds its own! A very good guitar that I will take to the campfires and lead out with on Sundays! Nice one, Taylor!

Sweetwater Advice

Phil Ferguson

Taylor has been in the business of making acoustic guitars since 1974. Since then, they have created some of the greatest guitars the world has known and I love them. I've been a Taylor fan all of my life and I know that they make guitars that look great, sound amazing, and don't break the bank! When I had the opportunity to play the Taylor Big Baby, I was reminded as to why I fell in love with Taylor all those years ago. The Big Baby is a 15/16-scale dreadnought which is just a fraction smaller than a full-size Taylor dreadnought, but larger than a Taylor Baby. The Big Baby is the perfect size to be a portable acoustic guitar, yet large enough to be a solid performer. With a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele laminate sides and back, the sounds that come from the Big Baby are immaculate. The Big Baby has sweet mids and a clear, responsive upper frequency range. I was very impressed with this guitar's ability to fill the room with such a rich and powerful acoustic sound. As a solo instrument, this guitar is absolutely riveting with an upper range that is bright, shimmering, and to die for. Rhythm parts on the Big Baby sound compelling and rich with a deep, but clean woody tone. An acoustic guitar that feels, looks, and sounds this great, I would easily expect to pay double the price. As a sub-$500 acoustic guitar, what a value! This is a guitar that I can take on the hiking trail and then right into the recording studio. For the money, there isn't an acoustic guitar that can beat the sound and versatility of a Taylor Big Baby.
