About the Taylor Big Baby (BBT)

The Taylor Big Baby is an excellent alternative to larger and more traditional dreadnought acoustics. It has a slightly smaller scale, 15/16th of a full size acoustic guitar model. More portable yet not lacking in sound quality or projection, it is well suited to performing and recording across many styles of music. Our Taylor Big Baby guitars come included with a gig bag.

Featuring layered wood back and sides, it keeps the cost down while still being a robust instrument. The Big Baby is a good choice for those who want to experience the sound and feel of a Taylor guitar in a more compact size.

Popular Taylor Big Baby guitar wood options include solid sitka spruce tops with layered walnut back and sides. The solid sitka spruce top provides a rich acoustic tone which all acoustic players will appreciate.
