The Taylor Big Baby Taylor Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar in natural, retains the diminutive form of the Baby Taylor, slipping in somewhere between the 3/4-sized Baby and a full-size dreadnought. IF you're still looking for power and rich tonal projection in a smaller body profile, then the Big Baby is the model for you.
Scaled-down Dreadnought, Scaled-up Travel Guitar
As a 15/16-scale dreadnought, the Taylor Big Baby left-handed delivers the solid projection and robust timbre that you'd expect from a dreadnought, full of clarity and articulation. However, its more portable dimensions means that this is a model that is built to travel with you, wherever your music takes you. 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.
Classic Taylor Tonewood Selections
The top has been crafted using solid Sitka spruce - a Taylor favourite that can be seen across many series of models -, a tonewood that is noted for its broad dynamic range that delivers an impressive projection. Sitka spruce also generates crisp articulation throughout the frequency range, ensuring that the Big Baby is versatile enough to turn its hand to whatever you wish to play. The top is reinforced using Taylor’s original X bracing pattern. 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.
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.
Finish and Gig Bag
It is the woods selected for the construction of the Taylor Big Baby left-handed acoustic guitar, along with its portable size and comfortable playability that makes it such a great all-rounder. The understated natural finish is coupled with robust yet slender coatings of varnish to preserve the finish for as long as possible. 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.
