Taylor is also a very well respected name in acoustic guitars. They haven’t been around as long as Martin guitars, but they have a reputation for innovative designs.
One of their most successful innovations is the Baby Taylor.
The Baby Taylor is another ¾ size dreadnought. Like the Martin LX1, it’s perfect for younger players and those with smaller hands.
It’s in the same price range as the LX1 (under $350), and while it’s a good guitar, it’s not as good as higher end Taylors.
That’s also true of the Martin LX1 though.
It’s difficult to provide a high quality instrument at the lower price point. Don’t get me wrong, the Baby Taylor is a great ¾ Dreadnought.
It’s got a solid Mahogany top, and laminate Sapele back sides. It’s also got a Tusq nut and saddle for great tone in such a tiny package. A gig bag is generally included also, since it’s a non-standard size.
Great for beginners or anyone looking for a travel guitar.
