Taylor is well known for building guitars that are easy to play. And while the company offers a full line of standard-size guitars, its travel-size Baby Taylor and GS Mini have found fans beyond those looking for an instrument that’s easy to travel with. Using a scaled-down version of Taylor’s GS body shape and a 23.5-inch scale length, the guitar is about ¾ of the size of a typical guitar, making it perfect not only for travel, but also for players who struggle with the dimensions of larger guitars. Peghead Nation Beginning Guitar instructor Adrianne Serna has also found that it’s perfectly suited to her original acoustic pop songs.

SPECS: ¾-size body with 14-fret neck. Solid Sitka spruce top. Laminated sapele back and sides. Bolt-on mahogany neck. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. 23.5-inch scale. 1 11/16-inch nut width. Enclosed chrome tuning machines. Satin finish. Made in Mexico. $678 list/$499 street. taylorguitars.com
