NAMM 2015: Taylor Travel Guitars Get New Pickup

Taylor Guitars has announced the addition of the Expression System Baby pickup to its line of popular travel guitars, the Baby Taylor Series.They say that this provides the ultimate on-the-go, plug-and-play experience. Here's the story in their own words...

The Expression System Baby, or the ES-B, is based on Taylor's patented behind-the-saddle pickup, the Expression System 2, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated piezo sensors.

The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. The ES-B is powered by an onboard preamp that incorporates volume and tone controls, plus another handy feature: a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The integrated electronics blend exceptional amplified tone and tuning capabilities into an all-in-one system for a seamless plug-and-play experience.

The new models include the three-quarter-size Dreadnought Baby Taylor, the Baby Taylor Mahogany, and the Taylor Swift Baby Taylor, along with the 15/16-scale Big Baby Taylor. All models feature a solid wood top (mahogany or Sitka spruce), layered sapele back and sides, and a genuine ebony fretboard and bridge. The ultra-portable Baby Taylor models are perfect for beginners, as a travel guitar, or for alternate tunings. Now paired with the ES-B pickup, players can record, plug-in or perform just about anywhere.

The electronics-equipped models will be designated with the addition of "e" as Baby Taylor-e, Baby Mahogany-e, Taylor Swift Baby Taylor-e, and Big Baby Taylor-e.

Available at authorized Taylor dealers in February
