Taylor BT1 (Baby Taylor)

Taylor BT1 (Baby Taylor)

The ¾-size Baby Taylor firmly established the travel guitar category years ago and today is more popular than ever. At the heart of it all is an authentic guitar sound and inviting playing experience. Featuring alayeredsapele back and sides and a top of solid Sitka spruce, you can add a capo, high-string it, tune it down, play it around the campfire, help your kids form their first guitar chords — however you use it, it’s always fun to have one within reach.

The guitar that set the standard for the travel guitar market, the enduringly popular Baby Taylor makes a great musical companion. Portable, playable and affordable, the Baby features a solid spruce top and yields impressive volume and tone for its compact, three-quarter-size scale. It’s the perfect travel mate, it’s a great choice for kids taking lessons, and artists from Lindsey Buckingham to Bono to Taylor Swift have used one for songwriting, recording and performing. With its unique dimensions and tonal personality, players have used it in other creative ways, from high-stringing it to setting it up to play lap slide to adding a capo to evoke mandolin-like sounds. The Baby includes a Taylor gig bag for easy portability.
