Taylor Guitars shifted production of their world famous Baby models from their California factory to a new facility across the border in Mexico around ten years ago, which instantly saw an immediate increase in both demand and prices for the original US built models. Theoretically the guitars remain unchanged, however many believe the originals to be noticeably superior instruments.
An accurately scaled ¾-size dreadnaught, the Baby covers two camps really well: a great learning guitar for kids; and the perfect travel guitar for adults. The Baby is also increasingly appearing on stages worldwide, as players everywhere realize that its big, full sound easily stands up alongside the other guitars in their live arsenal. The Baby's shorter scale also makes it the ideal instrument for high-strung tunings and mandolin or dobro-like effects.
Taylor's famous X-braced body framing combines with the Sitka Spruce top and Sapele Mahogany back and sides to imbue the Baby models with their famous clarity and huge projection. Add in the Mahogany neck, Ebony fretboard, Ebony bridge, plus the eye-catching laser-etched sound-hole rosette and you have one seriously impressive guitar! Completing the incredible value-for-money package are a Tusq nut and saddle; adjustable truss-rod; sealed, die-cast, chrome-plated tuners; Lexan headstock overlay that eliminates scratching; plus Taylor's Baby-exclusive, extra-heavy-duty, deluxe gig-bag. An amazing package at an absurdly low price – more-so given that this is an original US built model!
This 2001 Sitka Spruce topped Baby has just some very light play wear on top, in the strumming area, and that's about it! The guitar is otherwise in Excellent+ condition, looking virtually brand new from half a metre away.
From Sonic Youth and Adrian Belew to the Beach Boys and Lucinda Williams, so many big names are playing a Taylor Baby these days – not forgetting Taylor Swift and her signature model Baby – so this is your chance to join some of those famous musicians in the appreciation of a truly outstanding instrument.
