View Full Description
The Big Baby is slightly bigger than the popular Baby Taylor, and just shy of a full-size guitar. Its size makes it an easy-playing, great-sounding, portable guitar with an extra dose of volume and fullness. With its popular dreadnought shape, the Big Baby yields a robust voice.
Sitka Spruce & Layered Sapele
Taylor quite often use sitka spruce for their sound boards due to it producing a dynamic range of tones, and can accommodate a versatile range of playing styles. As well as the tone, sitka spruce also provides a stunning blonde grain that is contrasted against the layered sapele body. The use of layered sapele adds a rich tone to the mix and also offers a climate-resilient construction, making it a travel-friendly companion for all kinds of players. Like the original Baby Taylor, the Big Baby also features an arched back that provides added strength and contributes to its big tonal output.
Expression System Baby Electronics
The Taylor BBTe Big Baby ES-B not only features a superb acoustic tone, but is also equipped with the ideal electronics to amplify your sound accurately. The Expression System Baby pickup incorporates Taylor’s Expression System 2 piezo design elements, which is based on Taylor's patented behind-the-saddle pickup, featuring three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated piezo sensors. These three sensors enable a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than before, giving you the ultimate projection for a seamless plug-and-experience. This innovative pickup also includes an onboard preamp with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. As well as providing you with volume and tone control, the onboard side-mount also features an LED display for precise tuning and low battery indication. Controlling these functions is easy, with two rotary controls and one button for the tuner. The battery life will provide approximately 300 hours of use, with a 3V lithium battery.
