Besides the fact that my hands are too big for the guitar neck, I think this guitar is wonderful. Big sound for a small guitar. Very playable. Harmonics are clear and crisp. This guitar is perfect for beginners and children. Not too pricey, but sounds better than most guitars in its price range, and even some guitars that are hundreds more expensive. Would also be great to take on the road when taking a trip somewhere.

I have been playing acoustic guitar for years and have played/owned quite a few top of the line guitars. Still, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Big Baby Taylor extremely enjoyable to play. It has great tone, volume and clarity. The Taylor neck gives this Baby a nice, more expensive feel. It has a smaller, more intimate size but it is large enough to do the job on stage or studio. It is a great guitar for a beginner (much better than many other “starter” guitars) but there are a number of folks (even professionals) who use this guitar in live performances and in the studio. If you close your eyes and listen, you might not be able to tell it from much more expensive guitars.

I like the gig bag and take the BBT most anywhere I travel (even if it is just to the local office).

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a reasonably priced, quality starter instrument or an experienced player looking for a great traveling companion or additional guitar that has versatility of uses. If you get one as an addition to your “stable”, like me, you may find yourself reaching for the Big Baby Taylor as often as your more expensive guitars.

My Taylor Big Baby is my first guitar, so I’m writing this review from that prospective. It arrived from Amazon in perfect condition. The sound quality is great. It is a well crafted guitar with a very attractive look. Learning on this guitar has been easy so far. I hope to continue enjoying my Taylor for many years to come and I believe that the quality in workmanship will ensure that it last for as long as I am able to play.

I bought one of these two years ago from a local dealer and paid about $100.00 less. That said, it has very good tone and its smaller size lets you wrap yourself around it and really feel in control- Mine was well-made and sounds as good as acoustics costing a lot, lot more. I’ve shown it to professionals who were impressed with its quality and sound. Definitely a good choice not only for a beginner but for more advanced players, as well.
