I have always wanted to purchase a Taylor, but as a college student going to an already expensive college, I didn't have the money to invest in a nearly $2,000 guitar--as amazing and well worth the investment it would be. I finally got the money to purchase an introductory Taylor of the sorts--the Big Baby--which is the closest thing Taylor makes to a full size guitar, minus the hefty price tage. Including tax and the gig bag, I payed $340 at Guitar Center.

I am very please with my new Taylor. It resonates beautifully and quite magnificently--much more boldly, brighter and louder than my previous guitar, which cost more money and is slightly large. It's no thrills, but that's the price you pay for not paying as much money. Yet, it's still a very aesthetically pleasing guitar. Only real downside is that its brightness can be a bit overbearing. But even still, it's a heck of a lot smoother than any other guitar in the price range.

Only real downside is that its brightness can be a bit overbearing, and it isn't laced with various aesthetic accents other, more expensive Taylors have. But even still, it's a heck of a lot smoother than any other guitar in the price range.

Very light, yet very sturdy construction. Solid sitka spruce top, sapele-laminate sides and back. Full size fret board, 15/16 size body. Light-gauge elixir strings. Chrome finish tuners. Very low action, thus very easy to play.

Beautiful, very bright and smooth. Resonates magnificently, especially considering its slightly smaller size and signficantly lower price.

Only downsides: brightness can be overpowering, and it's no-frills.
