Slightly smaller than than a full-size guitar, the Big Baby looks and feels like a grownup.

I purchased a Big Baby several weeks ago and now believe this guitar is an either an anomaly, a mistake or a social experiment by Taylor. I cannot figure out how a $400 guitar could sound this amazing or play this incredibly. It easily sounds as good as some $1500-$2500 guitars I have played, only lighter and more comfortable! Just an amazing instrument, overall. I have had a very difficult time putting it down.

I did extensive research before I purchased this instrument, carefully comparing many guitars. The Taylor guitars emerged, without question, as some of the warmest, most resonant and playable acoustic guitars in any category. The 200 series was out of my price range and the 100 series is essentially made from the same materials as the Big Baby. The price difference allowed me to also get a nice molded case and sound hole pickup and I have a very versatile guitar for everything from song writing to recording to camp fire strumming and late night, living room jam sessions.

Some of the things I really like about this guitar (besides the great tone and action and name 'Taylor' on the headstock) are the natural grain of the unfinished Spruce top, the updated yet elegant shape of the pick guard, the rich ebony fretboard, and the most understated feature: the very muted but very cool laser-etched rosette.

For anyone concerned about the laminate back and sides, consider this: I upgraded from a very decent, all-mahogany guitar which, by comparison, sounded like rubber bands stretched across a shoebox. Also, the laminate is more durable and much more resistant to environmental factors such as humidity.

In summation, this guitar represents an incredible value in terms of playability and sound for the money. Now, if they would just do something about the name...

I bought one of these two years ago from a local dealer and paid about $100.00 less. That said, it has very good tone and its smaller size lets you wrap yourself around it and really feel in control- Mine was well-made and sounds as good as acoustics costing a lot, lot more. I've shown it to professionals who were impressed with its quality and sound. Definitely a good choice not only for a beginner but for more advanced players, as well.

I don't own this item but have played several of them over the years. I plan to eventually own one. It is a perfect size if you are a smaller than average person. It's not too small to have a great sound, but thin and small enough to be comfortable. The sound is great and the neck is very flat and responsive. If you get anywhere near the correct fingering position to a fret it will not buzz. I've played one of these at a local pawn shop that has obviously been played a lot and not taken very good care of and it looks bad but still plays like a new one, even with noticeable wear on the frets.

Taylor makes instruments of fine quality and this particular model plays as well as guitars costing many times more. By the way folks, receiving a damaged item is not a legitimate reason to write a review and give it a one star rating. This distorts the overall rating negatively for prospective buyers if they happen not to read every review. Receiving a damaged item has absolutely nothing to do in most cases with the original quality of the item. You're reviewing the product, not the shipping department or the shipper. If you receive a damaged item, complain to customer service or your shipper...its not the manufacturers fault if somebody backs over it with a forklift.

After tuning it up, strumming the first chord on it, I was amazed by the tone. Very warm and full bodied tone with good low/mid/upper frequencies. This guitar does NOT sound cheap.

I had to immediately take it over to a buddy to let hear hear it. I made him play it before I told him what I paid. His jaw hit the floor when I finally did tell him the price. This won't replace a high end Taylor, but an is it a nice sounding every day guitar.

Also, I wasn't sure if I would like the size, but it is ALMOST the size of a full sized acoustic, so the size doesn't bother me in the least.

AMAZING!

I have been playing acoustic guitar for years and have played/owned quite a few top of the line guitars. Still, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Big Baby Taylor extremely enjoyable to play. It has great tone, volume and clarity. The Taylor neck gives this Baby a nice, more expensive feel. It has a smaller, more intimate size but it is large enough to do the job on stage or studio. It is a great guitar for a beginner (much better than many other "starter" guitars) but there are a number of folks (even professionals) who use this guitar in live performances and in the studio. If you close your eyes and listen, you might not be able to tell it from much more expensive guitars.

I like the gig bag and take the BBT most anywhere I travel (even if it is just to the local office).

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a reasonably priced, quality starter instrument or an experienced player looking for a great traveling companion or additional guitar that has versatility of uses. If you get one as an addition to your "stable", like me, you may find yourself reaching for the Big Baby Taylor as often as your more expensive guitars.
