At ¾-scale, the Baby Taylor BT1 Acoustic Guitar is the little Dreadnought that could. This ultra-portable travel mate belies its size with a sweet, full voice and great tone; making it perfect for adults who prefer the comfortable dimensions of a smaller-sized guitar or even as a starter guitar for children. The Taylor BT1 uses the classic Dreadnought shape with a solid Sitka spruce top and layered sapele back and sides giving you the full-bodied sound the shape is known for, but in an easier-to-handle, easier-to-transport package. The exact dimensions of the instrument are: Body Length: 15 3/4", Body Width: 12 1/2", Body Depth: 3 3/8".

A classic tonewood in the construction of acoustic guitars, and a personal favourite of the Taylor founder himself, Bob Taylor, the solid spruce top offers a broad dynamic range, with crisp articulation throughout. It is these properties that see it as the perfect wood to employ in dreadnought construction as it mirrors the shape’s universal appeal and versatility; more than capable of holding its own in most genres and with most techniques, from flat picking and fingerpicking, to straight up strumming.

Partnering the top are layered sapele back and sides, crafted with a core of poplar, which sits snugly between exterior and interior layers of sapele. The back is also pressed into a slight arch, providing strength and helping produce the instrument’s full, rich tone. Having the back and sides constructed in this way keeps the guitar sounding great, whilst ensuring its resilience to changes in environment, notably the differences in humidity when moving between locations. It also keeps the cost down without sacrificing the guitar’s stunning good looks.

Sapele Neck, Ebony Fingerboard

Fitted to the Taylor Baby BT1 is a sapele neck, which actually provides a more colourful tone, in comparison to other neck types. The neck wears an eye-pleasing ebony fingerboard, which easily stands out from the rest of the guitar, whilst also offering a smooth, comfortable playing surface.
