Product Description

The Taylor BT1 Baby Taylor acoustic guitar proves that size isn't everything. This sleek little 3/4-size guitar is a perfect instrument for small hands learning how to play, and it is equally well-suited to adult players who want less to hold onstage or carry with them on the go. You'll notice that the gig bag comes with shoulder straps. It's because this baby wants to come along on your next adventure! And you'll be more than happy to bring such a wonderfully playing instrument.

With its solid Sitka spruce top, the BT1 Baby Taylor offers a brighter tone, with plenty of crisp, singing highs.

Nothing Small About the Sound

This is not a toy guitar. The BT1 is an instrument with a powerful, clear voice. The X-braced tropical mahogany top resonates loud and true, like all instruments built from the legendary cache of tonewoods meticulously sourced by Bob Taylor. Forget about all the other small-scale guitars you've ever heard. The BT1 is an instrument in a class of its own and suits players of any age or stature!

Elegant Simplicity

The sapele sides and heel are beautifully grained and unjointed, and the soundhole is accented with a single black ring rosette. The ebony fretboard is marked with six millimeter dot inlays at the 5th, 7th, 9th, and 12th frets. The handsomely carved bridge holds a ivory-colored NuBone saddle. Steady intonation is ensured with a matching NuBone nut and high-quality die cast chrome tuners.

Just Stick It In Your Pocket

The BT1 is only 12 1/2 inches across at its widest point, and a slender 3 3/8 inches deep! And at just 8 pounds, your back will have no objections to slinging on the BT1 Baby Taylor's feather-light gig bag the next time you want to bring your guitar along on a spur-of-the-moment gig or voyage. Take it camping! Take it to the beach! Take it to the moon!

Features:

- 3/4 Size Dreadnought shape
- Solid Sitka Spruce Top
- Layered Sapele Back/Sides/Heel
- Die-cast Metal Tuners
- Gig Bag Included

The Baby Taylor has been a runaway hit ever since it was introduced in 1996, and you shouldn't be surprised to see the BT1 on major stages. Taylor Swift doesn't play one just because she shares the name. She just knows what's up with the Baby Taylor!

Product Description

The 3/4-size Baby Taylor firmly established the travel guitar category years ago and today is more popular than ever. At the heart of it all is an authentic guitar sound and inviting playing experience. Featuring a Layered Sapele back and sides and solid Sitka spruce top, this Baby sings with bright tone. You can add a capo, high-string it, tune it down, play it around the campfire, help your kids form their first guitar chords -- however you use it, it's always fun to have one within reach.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Baby Taylor"
Overall: As much as I do nto like to slam any guitar maker And in as much as I have enjoyed playing my baby Taylor. In all my years of playing and owning dozens of guitars I have had only one guitar, my Baby Taylor which repeatedly came apart. The first time body came apart from the sides. Taylor determined it was a defect it was insufficiently glued and not user issue. Hey replaced the body. The next Baby Taylor’s top came apart at the glue seam from the bridge to the back of the guitar. Upon examining it I realized that it was not properly glued there was almost no glue in the seam. Taylor determined that the guitar was not kept in a room with at least 40% humidity and told me the issue was low humidity. I tried to explain that it is stored in a humidified house with multiple other instruments some from the 1920s on to recent and multiple brands and the only guitar affected was the Taylor.This is a travel guitar which is not travel worthy the intonation on the three models I owned was never great but I liked the convenience and tone. My problem with this guitar is that seems to fall apart. Do yourself a favor, buy a Yamaha, Ibanez, Martin or another guitar which is made better and has acustomer friendly warranty department.
