The Taylor 15/16-scale Big Baby Dreadnought boasts a surprisingly full voice. It is sure to become your trusty companion - wherever you go!

Bigger than a travel-size Baby Taylor but just shy of a full-size guitar, the Big Baby Taylor is ideal for easy-playing, great-sounding guitar fun. Slightly bigger than a Baby Taylor but just shy of a full-size guitar, the 15/16-scale Big Baby Taylor is ideal for easy-playing, great-sounding guitar fun. The overall size keeps you in the “portable” category, yet with an extra dose of volume and fullness. Like the Baby, the Big Baby has an arched back that provides strength and contributes to its big tonal output.

Sporting a solid spruce top, sturdy layered sapele back and sides, and genuine Taylor craftsmanship, the Big Baby makes a great songwriting guitar to keep around the house. The Baby Taylor's super-sized sibling gives you a full-size Dreadnought sound. Featuring a sapele laminate back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, it makes a handy songwriting partner for anyone. The ebony fretboard of the Big Baby Taylor is adorned with pearloid dot inlays and the natural wood tone is protected by a beautiful varnish finish. The single-ring soundhole rosette gives the Big Baby Taylor a classic touch. Diecast, chrome-plated tuning machines add impressive looking detail and allow for precision tuning.

The Taylor Big Baby is an affordable solution for a quality acoustic guitar. It looks great on the stage as well as in the studio, but will really look most spectacular in your hands! Taylor gig bag included.

      Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

      I ussually play the electric guitar becuase the strings are easier to play you don't have to apply much pressure to the strings to get a clear sound. Anyway I was looking for an acustic guitar that would be easy to play with a great sound something not to big that I would have to hug my arm around the body uncomfortably to strum the chords. When I saw the big baby and started to strum it it felt so good and sounded great I just had to have it. It was a pefect fit in my hand like it was taylored just for me I put in on layaway I am sure that I am going to be playing more acustic now than I have in the pass thanks Taylor!

        Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

        I've been playing for 11 years now, and Taylor's Big Baby Acoustic guitar has opened my eyes into the world of hollow-body boxes. I love everything about it. It has that rich tone that sends shivers down your spine when you play. You'll never want to put it down. I love it.

        Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

        I haven't been playing guitar for very long, just a few months, but this guitar is amazing. I play in a class at my school, so I'm nothing special, but I have people who have been playing for years commenting on how nice it is, and how great it sounds. Also, this guitar is insanely easy to learn on. And this is after having owned this thing for 4 years. My brother got it in his freshman year for a guitar class, but never played it again after, so this guitar can last a while. The guitars we have at school are really old, hard to play on, and after playing this, I've realized how flat they all sound. This is easily comparable to a much more expensive guitar, but that's both a good and bad thing. Of course, it's probably the best guitar you can get for $450-$500 dollars, but because of the fact that it's a Taylor, and how nice it sounds, people won't believe it wasn't in the 1000-1200 dollar range. Please, if you get this guitar, buy a durable case with a lock, and use it. If not this great guitar might be somebody else's before long.

          I was looking for a guitar for my birthday and i picked this one up and fell in love. The sound is amazing! It is so rich and it is a great play. Taylor has done it again. The strings are wonderful i love that Taylor uses Elixr strings. This is a perfect guitar for anyone who doesn't want to pay an arm and a leg. It is so much fun to play. It is a must buy.

            Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

            I bought this for a "knock-around" guitar so I could keep my other Taylor at home. This is a surprising instrument for the money. It sounds great and has more volume than you'd expect from a smaller body size. I just wish Taylor would offer a hardshell case and an electric version of this guitar.

              Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

              This guitar is the best instrument I've ever put into my hands. I don't actually own the product yet, but on the online store I found a Fender guitar I really liked. I hadn't checked it out in a nearby store. When I finally went to check it out, I found It wasn't what I thought it would be. One of the guys that work there showed me the "Big Baby Acoustic Guitar." I tried it out, and WOW!!!! What a great feel!!! It melted it my hands, so I put it on lay-a-way, and I'm making payments over time. I love this guitar!!!! I don't want to even think about buying a different guitar. It doesn't have a hook up whole built in. But you can buy something that picks up the sound and plugs into an amp [$] It sounds so awesome plugged up or not. I don't even know how to describe it. I cannot wait to get this guitar on my hands again!!!

              I will agree word by word to all the other review listed on top. You play 10 guitars and you hold this and you play....you know the difference right away. It just stand out...the name is mis leading for a Big Baby... its loud crisp and clear...

                Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

                I love this guitar such great action and feel. Don't be scared of the name I am a grown man 6'1 I bought this guitar because I have thick small hands. So i was looking for a neck with good movement and I found it. The sound is great the low end is still real good. I play with a guy that plays a epiphone ej 200 jumbo body and the big baby hangs in there with it. The craftsmanship is as good as the other taylors. I love this guitar the only compliant I have is it came with exliur strings which in my opinion did not play well so i got the martin fx phosphors bronze stings and they play great love the sound. Overall I would be this guitar again.

                Comments about Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar:

                This is the 2nd review of the Taylor Big Baby I've submitted because I feel it is absolutely warranted to impress upon the buying public that this is an awsome instrument! I gave the guitar high praise in my first review and I must impress that that has not changed at all. If anything, this instrument has got better over the past few months the more I play it.
                I can not tell you enough what a dream to play this little mosnter is. It is the first ax I grab when I practice or sit down to really play. Some of my other stable have been getting less and less play time since I had the basic set up on my Big Baby.
                The more this little guitar is played the better it plays and sounds. The engineering and attention to performance and function becomes more impressed upon you with each stroke of your pick or pluck of the finger. I swear you will never get a value more worth your dollar than this little Taylor Big Baby! It is AWSOME!
                I usually don't submit a 2nd review and don't know if this one will be allowed or not, but if it is... take it to the bank that when I say dollar for dollar this instrument will be some of the best money you ever spend on a musical instrument, I mean it.
                With the Elixur 12- 53 phosphor bronze strings on it this ax has a sustain that is unmatched... the bass is full and not overpowering. The mids and trebs are clear as a crystal bell! Finger picked or played hard with a pick, this little flat top delivers and then some.
                It is what it is folks... an outstanding acoustic guitar for under the half century price! That means no hard shell case (which if shopped for can be found at a reasonable aftermarket price), and no electronics (again... if desired can be found reasonably priced depending on what you want). Otherwise, this is an outstanding basic acoustic guitar that by far surpasses it's price range in quality and performance.
                This is a professional grade instrument at an entry level price folks. This is one instrument that you will not ever suffer buyers' regret over once you own it and play it. I hope this review helps who ever reads it.
                Remember to properly humidify and store your instruments to keep them in top shape!
