The Baby Taylor BT2 is the ultimate travel companion, delivering volume and tone that surprise for its diminutive dimensions. At three-quarters the size of a full-sized guitar, it lives for the road. It also loves little hands, which makes it an irresistible choice for kids taking lessons.
Small and Beautiful
Although smaller in size, the guitar’s dreadnought body shape, constructed with a solid mahogany top and layered sapele back and sides, ensures the instrument’s voice is heard; clearly and defined. The exact dimensions are: Body Length: 15 3/4", Body Width: 12 1/2", Body Depth: 3 3/8".
Solid Mahogany Top, Layered Sapele Back & Sides
Darker and earthier than its spruce counterpart (the Baby BT1), with an exceptional presence in the mid-range, tropical mahogany has a chewy texture to its tone. In addition to this, the sound it provides manages to remain well-balanced, with a nice dynamic range and tasteful overtones.
Ensuring the Taylor Baby Mahogany BT2 Acoustic Guitar can survive the travel that it is likely to see, Taylor have incorporated its original X pattern with scalloped braces. This form of bracing gives the guitar a continuous flow of strength from the upper to the lower bout, ensuring the soundboard is provided with continuous rigidity and strength.
Joining tropical mahogany at the back and sides of the guitar is layered sapele. This is crafted by sandwiching poplar between layers of sapele, and arching the back to provide extra strength and that full, rich tone. This technique of construction gives high quality of sound throughout whilst strengthening resilience to changes in environment and humidity, along with keeping cost down.
Sapele Neck, Ebony Fingerboard
A very playable sapele neck is joined by an ebony fingerboard, which compliments the mahogany top beautifully, offering a naturally hard and smooth alternative to, while the dark coloration provides a stunning contrast against the rich mahogany body.

I bought the Mahogany Taylor Baby for my daughter, who had who had fell in love with it a year previously. Though it doesn't look flash it plays extremely well and has been loved by all who have tried it. It comes with a good custom fit gig bag, which is just as well as it has a curved back. The standard strings are also very good.
