Big Baby Taylor or Baby baby?

by Tori

So...I'm very very small person. I'm a little less than 5 feet and have small hands. I have trouble playing the difficult chords that require you to have LONG fingers, and I was thinking of getting a smaller guitar. I play a regular Guild now. So my question is, what's the difference between a regular guitar and a big baby? I know the baby baby's are really small, so if there's not much of a difference between a big baby and regular, then I'm going for the baby.


Hi, Tori--

The Big Baby is 15/16 the size of a regular. The Baby is 3/4 size. So there is just a small difference between the regular and the Big Baby.

I recently bought a baby Taylor on sale and it is the best and easiest playing guitar I have ever played. I have played for over 40 years and have had dozens of high end guitars: guild, fender, and gibson among others. I am not a little person and don't have particularly small hands, but this is the perfect guitar for me. The main reason is the smaller body which I can reach around with no effort and hold in different positions. Suffers a little in sound volume and bass tone, but I put a shure lapel mic in it and through a pa it sounds as good as any $1000+ guitar of any size. I have not tried the big baby, but would like to try one to see if the tone is better. For the price, get the baby!

I thank you so very much for sending in your

To date I have three guitars, two acoustic and
one electric. I also stand less than five feet
tall and have had problems stretching my fingers.

I never realized that the size of my hands had
an impact on playing the guitar nor thought about
buying a smaller guitar.

Thank you.
