Baby Taylor Mahogany is the BEST
By: Michael Robinson from Versailles, Kentucky, United States
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I do consider the guitar to be well made. I am a fan of Taylor guitars to begin with but this little answered a particular niche for me that I couldn't find anywhere else for the price.
How has it stood up over time?
Too early to tell just yet. But I have High hopes.
Your general opinion of this product.
I recently ordered one of the B2 series baby taylors which is the model made entirely out of mahogany and I am thrilled by the tone of the instrument. Most of the parlor guitars have a tinny sound but not the B2. I guess it's because of the mahogany but whatever, I love the sound because it sounds like a lot bigger guitar than it is and it plays great. I did lower the action a bit when I got it but I love this guitar and now carry it everywhere I go. I also own two other Taylors and the quality is there.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Feels great. no electronics so that is not applicable.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the natural Mahogany look of the B2.
How was the action out of the box?
I did lower the action just a bit. The action was ok but I like the action a bit lower than it was because I do play a lot down the neck.
