The Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar, as the name suggests, is a slightly larger version of the ¾-sized Baby Taylor "Travel Guitar”, being just shy of a full-sized dreadnought.
As a 15/16-scale dreadnought, the Taylor Big Baby gives you the volume and fullness of a full-sized dreadnought but with slightly more portable dimensions, which, along with making it easier to transport, makes it more comfortable to play. The exact dimensions of the instrument are: Body Length: 19 1/2", Body Width: 15", Body Depth: 4". As with the Baby, this model has an arched back to provide additional strength and to increase the capacity of its tonal output.
Also ensuring strength is the incorporation of Taylor’s 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.
With a solid Sitka spruce top at the centre of its construction, the Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar yields a broad dynamic range and a crisp articulation that makes for a guitar that is equally adept at performing in everything, from flat picking and fingerpicking, to aggressive strumming.
The spruce is partnered with layered sapele back and sides, comprised of a core layer of poplar, sandwiched between layers of sapele veneer. Joining layered woods with solid, allows for a guitar that is great in sound but has additional resilience to changes in environment and humidity, whilst remaining affordable and beautiful.
It is the woods selected for the construction of the Taylor Big Baby, along with its portable size and sheer playability that makes it such a great all-rounder and an absolutely stunning, not to mention extremely handy, partner for song writing. You’ll find hard to put it down once you pick it up; fortunately you’ll never have to be without it, as it comes supplied with a Taylor gigbag.
