Taylor Baby Taylor-e, BT1e
The ¾-size Baby Taylor firmly established the travel guitar category years ago and today is more popular than ever. At the heart of it all is an authentic guitar sound and inviting playing experience. Featuring a layered sapele back and sides and a top of solid Sitka spruce, you can add a capo, high-string it, tune it down, play it around the campfire, help your kids form their first guitar chords, and more. Another handy feature on this edition is the Expression System Baby (ES-B) pickup, which 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.
From the moment of its birth, Taylor’s original portable picking partner, the three-quarter-size Baby Taylor, declared that it was more than just a starter guitar for kids. It was immediately embraced by adult musicians and travellers as a legitimate instrument, not just a stand-in for one, and seemed to inspire endless creative uses because of its portability and irresistible playfulness. From acoustic lap slide to Nashville high-strung guitar to godsend for people with hand ailments who yearned to play again, it gave many folks the creative spark they were craving. Eighteen years later, the little Dreadnought has given tens of thousands of people a wonderful outlet for learning to express themselves through music, and with the help of its up-sized sibling, the Big Baby, is still going strong.
The Expression System Baby (ES-B)
The Expression System Baby (ES-B) pickup incorporates Taylor’s Expression System 2 piezo design elements and features 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. 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.
