This guitar is a Dreadnought, which refers to the shape. This familiar shape is one that people generally think of when they visualize a guitar. This shape became well know because it was used by the musicians and folks singers of the 60’s and 70’s. It is also used by Bluegrass musicians.
An acoustic guitar is not an electric guitar. In other words, you can’t plug it into an amplifier and turn up the volume. I have to depend upon an exterior microphone if I’m playing to a large audience.
The Baby Taylor is a smaller guitar and is great for young beginners to form their first guitar chords, so it was ideal for me to get started on. The mahogany top adds a slight bluesy edge to the sound, so it’s perfect for the type of music I love.
There are many adults that use the Baby Taylor when they travel because it is smaller. It’s a comfortable guitar to play and it sounds so sweet!
I love my Baby Taylor and now play a Vintage Gibson J-45 guitar… but that’s another story.
P.S. The cost of a Baby Taylor is about $300.0o, which is great price for a beginning guitar. My folks refused to buy me a inexpensive $100.00 guitar because they knew it would be harder for me to push down the frets and the sound is generally lousy. Take my word… the Baby Taylor is a great way to go for a beginning guitar!
