TAYLOR BT2 Baby Taylor Acoustic Mahogany

In terms of smaller travel guitars, The Baby Taylor BT2 Mahogany owns this space, and for those who want a slightly warmer tone from a small and portable guitar the TAYLOR BT2 Baby Taylor also fits the bill! The mahogany-top version of the Baby Taylor will yield a slightly darker, earthier tone than its spruce top sibling.

The pint-size Dreadnought was originally inspired by a desire to provide a smaller, starter-size guitar for kids and a legitimate musical companion for travellers. 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 flavours to recordings.

The TAYLOR BT2e Baby Taylor BT2e also comes equipped with the Expression System Baby™ (ES-B) pickup for stage or studio. This ES-B pickup incorporates piezo design elements from the Taylor ES2. The pickup is powered by an onboard preamp with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner unit features an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, along with Tone and Volume controls.

As this is a travel size guitar, the Baby Taylor BT2 Mahogany guitar of course comes with the Taylor padded gig bag included as standard, making it an affordable guitar for the tone and quality it delivers, and absolutely why it gets such raving customer review!

Baby Taylor BT2 Mahogany FAQ's 

What is the difference between Baby Taylor 1 and 2?

When comparing the bt1 and bt2, there is one main difference. The bt1 has a solid sitka spruce top while the Taylor bt2 top is made of solid mahogany. Everything everything else is actually made the same including the same laminate back and sides, mahogany neck, three-quarter 22 inch scale length. Both also have stunning ebony fingerboards and masterfully crafted ebony bridges

What is the scale length of the Taylor BT2 Mahogany

The Taylor BT2 Baby has a scale length of 22.75 inches. The scale length refers to the distance between the nut and the saddle on a guitar, and it plays a significant role in determining the instrument's playability, string tension, and overall feel. The shorter scale length of the Taylor BT2 Baby contributes to its compact size and comfortable playability, making it a popular choice for those looking for a portable and easy-to-play acoustic guitar.

Are mahogany acoustic guitars good?

Yes, mahogany acoustic guitars can be very good and are favoured by many players for their unique tonal qualities and visual appeal, especially the Baby Taylor bt2 Mahogany - it's a gorgeous guitar and true companion for travelers. Mahogany is a popular wood choice for acoustic guitars, and it's known for producing a warm, balanced, and focused sound, exactly what the all-mahogany BT2 three-quarter size guitar is known for!

Here are some characteristics and benefits of mahogany acoustic guitars:

  1. Tonal Characteristics: Mahogany typically produces a midrange-rich sound with a strong emphasis on the lower midrange frequencies. This results in a warm and mellow tone that is well-suited for strumming and fingerpicking. The midrange prominence helps cut through mixes when playing with other instruments.

  2. Sustain: Mahogany's shorter sustain compared to other tonewoods can be desirable for certain playing styles, as it can provide a quick and controlled decay of notes.

  3. Versatility: Mahogany guitars are versatile and suitable for various genres, including folk, blues, country, and singer-songwriter styles.

  4. Aesthetics: Mahogany often features beautiful grain patterns and can have a reddish-brown color that darkens and develops character as the guitar ages. The

    Taylor Baby Taylor Mahogany Acoustic Guitar is no exception, it's stunning to hold.

  5. Weight and Comfort: Mahogany is generally lighter than some other tonewoods, which can make the guitar more comfortable to hold and play for extended periods.

  6. Affordability: While there are high-end mahogany guitars, mahogany is often more affordable than other premium tonewoods like rosewood or koa, making it accessible to a wider range of players.

It's important to note that the specific sound of a guitar is influenced by various factors, including the type of mahogany used (there are different species), the guitar's body shape and size, the bracing pattern, and the construction techniques employed by the manufacturer. As with any guitar, personal preference plays a significant role, so it's recommended to try out different guitars and listen to their sound in person or through recorded samples to determine if a mahogany acoustic guitar suits your playing style and preferences. 

When was Taylor BT2 mahogany made?

The Taylor BT2 Baby acoustic guitar line was introduced as part of Taylor Guitars' lineup in the 2000s. The specific manufacturing years can vary, but generally, the Taylor bt2 Mahogany model has been available since around the mid-2000s. To get precise information about when a particular BT2 guitar was made, you would need to refer to the serial number and contact Taylor Guitars directly or check their official resources for dating their instruments. 

Is Baby Taylor a good beginner guitar?

Yes, the Baby Taylor is often considered a good option for beginners due to its smaller size, comfortable playability, and relatively affordable price. Here are some reasons why the Baby Taylor can be a suitable choice for beginner guitarists:

  1. Compact Size: The Baby Taylor's smaller body size makes it more comfortable for beginners, especially those with smaller hands. This can contribute to easier fretting and chord changes.

  2. Playability: The shorter scale length of the Baby Taylor can make it easier for beginners to press down on the strings, reducing the initial finger discomfort that can come with learning to play.

  3. Portability: The compact size of the Baby Taylor makes it a great option for traveling or practicing on the go.

  4. Affordability: While Taylor guitars are generally considered premium instruments, the Baby Taylor series is often more affordable than some of their larger models. This makes it a good entry point for beginners who may not want to invest heavily in their first guitar.

  5. Quality Construction: Taylor Guitars is known for its quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, even in their more affordable models. The Baby Taylor is built to the same high standards as their other guitars.

  6. Resale Value: Baby Taylor guitars tend to hold their value well, so if a beginner decides to upgrade to a different guitar in the future, they might still get a decent return on their investment.

However, as with any guitar, it's important for beginners to try out different options before making a decision. The best guitar for a beginner is one that feels comfortable to play and suits their musical preferences. It's recommended to visit a music store and try out a few different guitars, including the Baby Taylor, to see which one feels right for you. Additionally, if possible, seek advice from experienced guitarists or instructors who can provide guidance based on your specific needs and goals.
