FS: Taylor Big Baby (c2000) – $675

Post by Miza »

Up for grabs my Taylor Big Baby acoustic.

Posting this now in case I change my mind. Pics to come later.

Solid Sitka spruce top, with laminate Sapele sides and back. Ebony fingerboard. More specs can be found online, although this was one of the very early production models, so not sure if there’s been any changes over the years? Purchased from Rockshop in 2001; these were about $1200 back in the day, noticed they’re a bit cheaper nowadays.

Slightly smaller size body (15/16) so quite a comfortable guitar to play, with a very slight curve on the back.

Put some fresh strings on it yesterday and forgot how great it sounds! Bright and sparkly. Loud for a smaller body, but not overly boomy, so it sits well in a band mix.

Fairly good condition, few nicks and dings as you’d expect from 20 years of play. A little fret wear on frets 2-4 too.

I had a pickup installed when I bought it new, an Arlec something. Sounds ok plugged in, but would really shine with a better P/U.

Will come with upgraded hardshell case, or the original Taylor soft case if you prefer (I use it for storage).

Selling cos it doesn’t get played much (my ’78 Maton is the favourite) and we just need the $ for other things. Would consider a partial trade for a Neunaber Wet/Slate V2 + EXP.

Pick up Hamilton, or possibly Auckland by arrangement (if it fits around work schedule).
Nothing to see here.

Nice guitars those... I'm not in the market for one, but I do have a Slate + Exp if you get some cash (and also a wet but I want to keep that)

LOL, I was going to say the same thing (except for keeping a Wet), but you beat me to it! :lol:

Excellent, we can have a price war :D
How do you tell if a Slate is v2 or not though? It has no writing on it!

Oh, and I just checked, my Wet is in fact an Immense (which has the Wet sounds, plus a bunch more)

V1 has a green logo and is labelled "Neunaber Technology", V2 has no logo and just "Neunaber".

Mr Oleg was first, so he should have reverse dibs. Mine will end up on Tone Lounge Pre-owned, next time I add another batch of used pedals.

That's good of you Conway, though it was a close thing. What is a fair price for the Slate + EXP?

Hmmm, that's a very good question...

When you figure it out, can you let me know! :wink:

Quick bump before it gets sacrificed to the TradeMe gods.

Any interest at $650?
