The Taylor BT2 Baby Mahogany Left Handed Acoustic Guitar offers an exceptional companion for lefties. Whether you're busking on the street corner, playing for friends on the beach, practising your chops or simply kicking back and chilling out, the BT2 Baby Mahogany is a little beauty. At three-quarters of the size of a full-sized dreadnought, it is perfect for slinging over your back and hitting the road with. Not only that, but those who have a shorter reach and younger players who are just getting started will appreciate the forgiving dimensions - perfect for honing your skills on.
As the name suggests, the Baby Mahogany guitar is built using tropical mahogany for the soundboard, which produces a rich midrange delivered with a hearty punch. The top is reinforced using X-bracing to enable the wood to resonate freely whilst preventing unwanted buckling or warping over time. The mahogany soundboard is complemented by a black single ring rosette, which adds a nice touch to the natural finish.
The back and sides are crafted using layered sapele, which creates a crisp character with a bouncy energy. Layered sapele also holds up well when it comes to changes in humidity and temperature, contributing to its favourable travelling prowess. As we've come to expect from the team at Taylor, the BT2 is solidly built and offers a reassuring sturdiness as you perform. The woods are protected by a coating of varnish to uphold their brilliance for as long as possible.
Joined to the body is a sapele neck, which is connected via a well-executed finger joint. Varnish has been applied to the rear of the neck to prevent unwanted rubbing of the wood over time. Married to the neck is a beautiful West African ebony fingerboard, which is home to 19 frets that are decorated with 4mm dot Italian acrylic position inlays to guide your way in understated fashion. Whether you're a seasoned pro or picking up the guitar for the first time, the BT2 neck profile and fingerboard radius accommodate all players for sublime playability.
The body is home to a nubone nut and micarta saddle, which stabilise each string whilst upholding intonation and sustain dutifully to bolster and enhance the guitar's timbre. Die-cast chrome tuning machines sit on either side of the headstock to uphold tuning integrity with accuracy. A gig bag is included with the Taylor BT2 Baby Mahogany Left Handed Acoustic Guitar to get you out on the road immediately.
