The Taylor Swift signature guitar, the acoustic-electric Taylor Taylor Swift Baby Taylor-e, was inspired by Taylor’s memories of penning many songs with her own Baby Taylor in hand. Okay, so it’s called a Baby Taylor, but don’t for a second get this beautiful guitar confused with a toy – the Baby Taylor acoustic-electric guitar has a grownup sound. A 3/4-scale body makes the Baby super-portable and easier to play by far than a full-sized dreadnought. At the same time, this guitar isn’t lacking in the tone department. It’s got a bold and full voice, plus a solid Sitka spruce top that gives this Baby serious punch for its size. And, though the Baby Taylor is perfect for guitarists with smaller hands/younger players, it’s also excellent if you’re just looking for a different kind of tone. And when you need to plug in, the Baby-e has Taylor’s new Expression System Baby pickup built in. It uses the under-saddle pickup of the ES2 system coupled with a preamp that sports a chromatic tuner. Whatever your reason for picking up a Baby Taylor acoustic-electric guitar, you’re really in for a treat!
