  • The Taylor Baby M Doubles Up On The Mahogany

    Nov 8, 2006 by sparkospunky is a Lead on Epinions in Musical Instruments
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Best possible bass response in a 3/4 scale guitar
    Cons: Inherent design limitations, but they've been dealt with pretty well here

    Summary: I have a confession to make—ever since I discovered that Taylor made different versions of the Taylor Baby using different woods, I’ve become slightly obsessed with laying my hands on each one in search of a meaningful bass response. The Taylor ... read more

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: nice size, good volume
    Cons: boxy sound, might wanna check setup. 

    Summary: well I've had this for about a month.  The sound is boxy and with the included elixir strings the sound can become a bit muddled.  I'll be trying some silk and steel strings next month to see if that makes a little difference.  The action ... read more

  • This Baby Sings

    Oct 17, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tone, volume, intonation, action, and great harmonics too.
    Cons: Narrow fingerboard, awkwardish to hold.

    Summary: I wanted a travel guitar and considered a number of options: Martin Backpacker? - odd shape, and I heard bad reports both in terms of holding the thing as well as its tone; I wondered about an eastern european instrument called a 'Troubador', a ... read more

  • Baby Love

    Jul 10, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Portability, reasonable price, good sound, solid construction.
    Cons: Not much bass, doesn't stay in tune all that well.

    Summary: Back in 1999, before heading for a month-long trip to Greece (wish I could do that again!), I decided that I would treat myself to a travel guitar. I had in mind a Martin Backpacker, which was pretty much the only one I knew about, but when I got myself ... read more

  • No maybe for this baby

    Feb 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Outstanding sound for a guitar of this size.High quality construction and materials. Excellent finishing.
    Cons: Scratchplate option would be good. Bridge pins not of same quality.

    Summary: Undoubtedly the Baby Taylor is an outstanding instrument.It has a particular character,and some quirks, which means that it will have its detractors as well as zealous advocates that claim it out-plays a 1938 Martin etc.It's good but not that good! I ... read more

  • Excellent little guitar that serves many purposes well. Know your needs before buying!

    Nov 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great form factor, not intimidating to kids, fantastic second guitar. Very well built/appointed.
    Cons: Not a great chorded sound, less than fabulous appearance, requires light guage strings.

    Summary: The Baby Taylor is a great little travel guitar. There are other manufacturers who hope to aspire to the travel guitar market. For example, Martin's Backpacker, Ovation's Travel guitar and a myriad of others. Appearance At first I was underwhelmed ... read more

  • Tailor-made Taylor for Small People

    Nov 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich sound, ebony fingerboard, low easy action, light and portable
    Cons: Sometimes feels too light, no pick guard, no decoration

    Summary: I purchased this guitar in August and have played it every day since I bought it. I'm a petite woman - 5'1", on a good day - with small hands. I've had a 3/4 sized nylon stringed guitar since I was a teenager, but it has never really been comfortable to ... read more

  • Taylor Baby doesn't mean baby sound. It means Taylor quality!

    Jun 11, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great size, affordable, great sound for a little guitar
    Cons: Screw penetrating fret board.

    Summary: After playing my Mahogany Baby Taylor around my friends, one of them (who plays guitar) decided to g ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Size, Cheap, Amazing Tone
    Cons: Screws in the fingerboard

    Summary: I got the Mahogany Baby Taylor a few weeks ago. I immediately fell in love with it. It’s sound is so beautiful, and it’s size is so efficient. I walked into the door with my package (I bought it on ebay.com for 220 dollars) and the first thing my ... read more

  • Why it's a MUST Buy, And to some...A MUSTN'T BUY!

    Pros: How to decide if it's time for YOU to have a Baby!
    Cons: Listed in the review, subjective.

    Summary: Ok, folks, I've had 4 of these. Construction: excellent Sound: for the size, incredible Playability: Wonderful. UNLESS you have Gorilla hands. I have encouraged everyone of my students who travel to get one, and each one is ... read more

  • Taylor Baby M

    Dec 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small size, big sound, very affordable
    Cons: bolt on neck, not offered with electronics by Taylor, must install own electronics

    Summary: Overall, one of the best guitars in this price range I have played. Good action, easy to adjust and tweak, stays in tune much better than the original Baby. As far as the sound goes, very bright, full sound, lacks a little in the bottom end, but ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light with an amazing sound
    Cons: none

    Summary: I have my quieter moments when I don't feel like making noise with my strat or Les Paul. That is when I pick up an acoustic...I don't have to plug in and I could just mellow out and get instant gratification. I have owned acoustics which were ... read more

  • My second favorite "Baby" (wife, you know)

    May 31, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent playability, intonation, and good tone for its size. Easy to carry
    Cons: Too easy to play; it will spoil you

    Summary: I have travelled extensively with this guitar, mainly to keep me company on business trips. I eventually found several places on my routes around the Piedmont to get up and play (open stages, joining the artist, etc.) I have played guitar for 22 years, ... read more

  • Size Really Doesn't Matter!!!

    May 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice tone, low price, low action, small size
    Cons: small neck, not as loud as expensive dreadnought solid-tops, no pickguard

    Summary: I love my baby Taylor. It's just fun to play, which is not something you can say about a lot of cheap guitars. It's got low action, so it's pretty easy to play, and a small, shorter-scale length neck, which makes it easy to get from place to place on ... read more

  • Oooooh, Baby!!!

    Mar 21, 2001 by sparkospunky is a Lead on Epinions in Musical Instruments
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, utility, perfect beginner's instrument
    Cons: 3/4 scale sacrifices a little in the sound department

    Summary: The Baby Taylor six-string acoustic guitar is a study in both economy and versatility. The Taylor Guitar Company trumpets the virtues of the Baby Taylor by saying that it's an "adult travel guitar, a beginner's learning guitar, and a ... read more

  • Scaled -down Taylor

    Mar 14, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid top, low action, good sound considering small size
    Cons: Pricey

    Summary: In recent times, manufacturers like Martin & Taylor have been going into the "travel-size" guitars, and it seems that there is a healthy demand for such scaled-down guitars. I for one do not really see the need for a small guitar just for the ... read more

    Pros: Affordable, Durable, Good sound
    Cons: None

    Summary: Bob Taylor's done it again- incredibly playable, reasonable sound and take it with you anywhere: Guitar to GoGo! I've owned a 60's vintage Martin D-28, Ovations, Seagulls and 3 full-size Taylor guitars. At the moment I own a 25th anniversary ... read more

  • Oh Baby, It's a Taylor

    Dec 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: tone, volume, ease of play
    Cons: strings close to fret-board edge, dull satin finish

    Summary: I find this little gem perfect for those outdoor camp-fire type musical sessions when I'd rather not subject my "good" guitar, (also a Taylor), to the elements. Its tone, volume, ease of play, and workmanship are excellent for such an ... read more

    Pros: price, size, tone
    Cons: tuners don't seem to hold tune
