Summary: As I have gotten older my fingers don't stretch as they used to. So while in Best Buy music dept. I decided to walk into a neat acoustic guitar room where they have their entire inventory to look at and sample. I wanted to try some smaller some smaller guitars. I picked up the Taylor Baby and was sold on it after strumming a few cords. Great sound, minimal action, simple but attractive and priced great for a Taylor, A richer sound then my my Ovation Applause.
Summary: I bought this last january, thinking I would start playing guitar again. I picked it up quickly. The neck is a little small and narrow, but other than that, this guitar is easy to play. I practiced for a few months, and enjoyed that clear taylor tone. It wasnt until I decided to record a few songs for youtube until I ran into this axe's biggest drawback. This guitar is very quiet. There is absolutely no oomph in this thing at all.
Summary: Purchase this from a local music store. I purchased one for my daughter in June of last year, and the bridge is already lifting from the guitar. We were told this is unusual for a Taylor, it is more common in a cheaper guitar.Our local music store would have replaced it if it was purchased there, but I wanted to save $50.... It has been well taken care of, yet it is now going to cost me $100.00 to get it fixed. The sound is great and she loves it.
Summary: So, my Baby arrived today with a gig bag. It was awesome. I think I just fell in loved~! Baby Taylor is beautiful in every way imaginable, very detailed craftsmanship. It sounds bloody good and fits my hands really well, too. And the gig bag is really of high quality. The padding is thick and sturdy. It would protect the Baby well (though I'm thinking about getting the SKB case anyway for better protection). All in all a great guitar and a great gig bag.
Summary: Not too shabby at all. It really has a wonderful sound for such a small guitar. No, it doesn't have the bass response of larger and even some cheaper full size guitars but it sounds clean and bright and does the job when a big sound isn't required. Regarding the size of the frets and playing it, it is of course smaller and sometimes some chords seem a little bunched but then on some chords it is easier to play. Just depends on the size of your hands.
Great travel size guitar that doesn't sacrifice playability.

Summary: This guitar is fantastic for traveling (camping, parties, etc..) or if you have an idea that you want to get out of your head. I own five other guitars (EVH, PRS, Music Man, Gretsch, and Hofner) and this little guitar I probably play the most around the house. Great for when you are watching TV or just want to practice some licks. Keep an eye out for the intonation and staying in tune.
Summary: It's a great addition to any collection. they could improve one thing, Cap the neck screws exposed on the neck at the 16th fret, it would validate the claim of "attention to detail" that has made the Taylor name what it is.
Summary: Fürs kleine Gepäck und fürs Lagerfeuer ist die Gitarre gut. Irgendwo habe ich gelesen, dass sie die Konzertgitarre bei manchen Studioaufnahmen ersetzt - das halte ich wiederum für klar übertrieben. Sie klingt schon recht "blechern" - aber als Kompromiss unbedingt nutzbar. Sie kann recht laut sein, es fehlen im Klangbild ein wenig die Bässe (irgendwo muss sich ja der kleine Corpus bemerkbar machen)!
