Taylor Baby - Sitka Spruce top - US built!
Taylor Baby, (Model 305-GB), 2003 – new old stock! This is where your search for a modern ¾ size acoustic dreadnaught finishes. You’ve possibly read the reviews, along the lines of, “Left my trusty Martin for dead.” Or, “Taylor might call it a travel guitar, but I have no hesitation whatsoever in using my Baby on stage, night after night…” Of course, you can use it as a travel guitar, but Taylor’s incredible build quality makes this a guitar that you're able to take directly from the tour van or hotel room to the venue.
This is what Taylor themselves have to say about the Baby: “Because it's an accurately scaled 3/4-size dreadnought guitar, we knew the Taylor Baby would be a great learning guitar for kids, and the perfect travel guitar for adults. What we didn't anticipate was how many guitarists would adopt the Taylor Baby for use as a specialty instrument on stage and in the recording studio… The shorter scale makes the Baby ideal for high-strung tunings and mandolin or dobro-like effects.”
The Baby gains its famous clarity and huge projection from the combination of its satin finished Sitka Spruce top and Sapele Mahogany laminated back and sides, (check out the lovely color and grain on the arched back!), plus Taylor’s famous X-braced body framing for maximum tone & projection. Add in a Mahogany neck, Ebony fretboard, Ebony bridge, along with the eye-catching laser-etched sound-hole rosette, and you’ve got one seriously impressive guitar. More? Tusq nut & saddle, adjustable truss rod, enclosed, die-cast, chrome-plated tuners, plus a Lexan headstock overlay that eliminates scratching, and the extra heavy-duty, deluxe Taylor gig-bag…
Sure, you could utterly spoil your son or daughter with a Taylor Baby – but let’s face it, precious few of these find their way into kids’ hands! And you don’t need to pay $700 either – this impeccable American-built model from 2003 is yours for just $570 – including the pro-quality Taylor gig bag. From Sonic Youth and Adrian Belew to the Beach Boys and Lucinda Williams – here’s your chance to join some of the world’s most famous musicians in the appreciation of a truly outstanding instrument. Freshly strung with a set of D’Addario phosphor-bronze Lights, she sings like a bird!
NOTE: All Babys are now manufactured in Mexico – this is one of the last ones from the Taylor plant in California
