This mahogany-top edition of the Baby Taylor will yield a slightly darker, earthier tone than its spruce top sibling. The pint-size mini-Dreadnought was originally inspired by a desire to provide a smaller, starter-size guitar for kids and a legitimate musical companion for travelers, but players have since adapted it for their needs in all sorts of creative ways, from high-stringing it to setting it up to play lap slide, to embracing alternate tunings that add unique acoustic flavors to recordings. At the heart of it all is an authentic guitar sound and inviting playing experience. The guitar comes in a gig bag for easy toting convenience.

I love my new mahogany Baby Taylor. It looks good and its playability is wonderful. It is very light and surprisingly small. This compactness seems to make it easier to navigate than full size acoustic guitars; great for smaller players. The sturdy bag supplied with it is attractive and of a good quality. It would be nice if they came with a pickguard but it was not a problem for my local music shop to install one for me. This would be the perfect guitar with which to encourage a child to play with a quality instrument of a suitable size. Don't expect as full a tone as a full size dreadnought and you won't be disappointed. The BT2 is fun.
