This 3/4-sized dreadnought guitar features a beautiful mahogany top with layered sapele back and sides, an easy-to-navigate ebony fingerboard over a cozy sapele neck, 19 frets with comfortable action, secure and resilient X body bracing, and Taylor's clear and dependable Expression System Baby pickup and preamp, complete with a digital chromatic tuner onboard. Whether you're plugged in or staying acoustic, this guitar will sound great with every strum.

Small Size, Big Sound

There are all kinds of benefits of going with a travel-sized acoustic-electric guitar, and saving on space makes carrying this Baby a breeze. Don't let this instrument's size full you -- it's still a real Taylor acoustic guitar! The combination of mahogany and sapele yields a warm and bright sound with plenty of resonance and sustain. You'll get a healthy dose of lows and mids, and the sapele will bring in a nice touch of treble zing to your playing.

Sapele Neck and Ebony Fingerboard

The sapele neck on your BT2e Baby Taylor features a silky-smooth ebony fingerboard that's a treat to play. Your fingers will enjoy taking advantage of the close action harnessed by all 19 frets, and modest yet tasteful pearl dot inlays mark your fret numbers in classic dreadnought style.

Crystal-Clear Expression System Electronics

The "e" in BT2e stands for electric, read more and that's just what you get with this Baby. Taylor Guitars takes a lot of pride in the clear and pristine articulation of their Expression System electronics setup. The Baby's pickup will capture the warmth, resonance, and subtly of your playing style and craft it into a signal that'll steal and keep the attention of anyone within earshot. With this setup, your days of worrying about buzzes, hums, or low-mid-frequency mud are over.

Great Unplugged or Plugged In

Just because this acoustic guitar has an awesome pickup and preamp system, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't take a pass on going unplugged from time to time. If you find yourself in an intimate setting with a small audience without the convenience of amplification, this axe will still get the job done. The dreadnought shape, with its broad shoulders and infamous contour, does a great job of maximizing the volume of your performance in a tasteful and tonally colorful fashion.
