2006 Taylor 307 Big Baby Small Dreadnought Guitar

While I have a middling distaste for the normal Taylor Baby models (except for when used tuned to a higher pitch or for alternate stringing and/or modified to make use of their quirks), I enthusiastically support the Big Baby models as a great "entry-level" or "knock-about" instrument.

These feel nice, setup easily, are tough, sound great, and have a comfortable thinner depth and narrower lower bout compared to a "real" dreadnought, even while having a full-scale neck. They're sort-of like a wide-waisted 000 model and they sound a bit like one, too.

This one's lightly-used and, after a quick setup and new strings, was ready to go and out in the shop for sale. I also like the hilarious "double drywall screw from the top" bolt-on neck mount. This is fast to adjust for us repair folk -- pop that neck off, shim-up the angle at the butt of the heel electric-guitar-style to suit your action, and hey presto! We've got a guitar back in action again.
