Years ago, Taylor established the 'travel' guitar as a legitimate musical category by introducing the Baby Taylor, a 3/4-size mini-Dreadnought that delivered a great-playing, great-sounding guitar in an ultra-portable form. It's great for songwriting, kids, the beach, and other alternative uses like slide or high-strung applications. Its up-sized sibling, the Big Baby, runs 15/16 scale and delivers more of a full-size sound. There are Baby Taylor models that come with Taylor's onboard Expression System Baby (ES-B) pickup, which borrows from Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup elements and features a preamp with volume and tone controls, plus a handy built-in tuner for the ultimate in playing convenience. Taylor's wildly popular GS Mini continues Taylor's tone-forward evolution, packing a full-size voice into a compact, fun-to-play form. Think of the scaled-down version (23 1/2-inch scale length) of Taylor's Grand Symphony shape as the ultimate modern-day parlor guitar.
