The guitar that set the standard for the travel guitar market, the enduringly popular Baby Taylor makes a great musical companion. Portable, playable and affordable, the Baby features a solid spruce top and yields impressive volume and tone for its compact, three-quarter-size scale. It’s the perfect travel mate, it’s a great choice for kids taking lessons, and artists from Lindsey Buckingham to Bono to Taylor Swift have used one for songwriting, recording and performing. With its unique dimensions and tonal personality, players have used it in other creative ways, from high-stringing it to setting it up to play lap slide to adding a capo to evoke mandolin-like sounds.

The pickup is powered by an onboard preamp that boasts a handy built-in digital chromatic tuner.

The extra utility makes it easier than ever to sound your best, both unplugged and amplified. The guitar comes with a gig bag for easy portability.


Baby Taylor BTe-Koa

$499.99

Baby Taylor BTe-Koa

The arched back of the Baby Taylor BTe-Koa generates more sound from a small-bodied instrument, and using layered wood back and sides create a sturdy yet receptive platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar’s top. Layered wood is less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.

The Baby Taylor BTe-Koa also comes with the Expression System Baby (ES-B) pickup, which incorporates piezo design elements from the flagship Taylor ES2 system. It’s powered by an onboard preamp that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner, an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, and Tone and Volume controls.

The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium (CR2032) batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use. The ES-B conserves battery life using a standard on/off system that will automatically turn off if left on over 3 minutes. A low battery indicator on the LED display (located on the preamp circuit board) will display an “L” when the battery reaches 4.5 volts.
