Taylor Baby Taylor BTe-Koa Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Natural Koa
An All-koa Baby Taylor with Electronics
The Taylor Baby BTe-Koa packs the warmth and snap of an all-koa body into a 3/4-size dreadnought. This acoustic-electric guitar's smaller design is extremely comfortable and fun to play. And when you need to plug in, the Baby BTe-Koa has Taylor's ES-B pickup built in. It uses the under-saddle pickup of the ES2 system coupled with a preamp that sports a chromatic tuner. Whether you're looking for a guitar to craft songs on or a great travel guitar, the Taylor Baby BTe-Koa is the perfect choice.
The rich sound and look of Hawaiian koa: a tonewood like no other
Koa is a treasured tonewood only found on the Hawaiian islands. Prized for its combination of warm tone and beautiful looks, this Taylor Baby BTe-Koa has an all-koa body that combines the midrange richness of mahogany with the sparkling top end of maple. The 3/4 dreadnought body style further enhances the wide-ranging tone and excellent balance, and because of the solid top, the Baby BTe-Koa's tone will become richer and more complex as the years go by.
Plug your baby in with Taylor's Expression System Baby pickup system
Taylor designed the new Expression System Baby (ES-B) system to deliver great-sounding natural tone of your Baby BTe-Koa to your amp, PA, or recorder. They took the under-saddle element from the their acclaimed ES2 system and paired it with an onboard preamp. You get volume and tone controls as well as a built-in chromatic tuner with LED display.
3/4-size dreadnought is easy to play and to transport
At 3/4 the scale of a full-sized guitar, the body of a Taylor Baby BTe-Koa is compact yet still full on tone. It's comfortable for rehearsals in cramped spaces, as a travel guitar, or the perfect size for most young players. It's remarkably versatile for special applications, whether played in alternate tunings or the high-strung Nashville tuning. Don't let its size fool you, this guitar has big guitar tone.
