Taylor Swift Taylor signature acoustc?

My niece is graduating this year and I am pondering if I should get her a guitar. She's expressed interest in learning guitar and I am clueless on anything else to get her. The Taylor Swift acoustic is not very expensive. Plus it's nice but not too goofy-looking.

Anyone have any thoughts on it? I'm checking out other reviews but I'd rather see if anyone here has any input on it or some other decent guitars in that price range.

Re: Taylor Swift Taylor signature acoustc?

Idk about the Taylor Swift model specifically, but the baby Taylor is a very nice little guitar at a decent price. Plays and sounds nice - pretty easy to learn on as acoustics go. I got one for a nephew and he loves it, but more importantly I played it several times and it really is a nice little guitar.

The Taylor Swift's Taylor is the same as Taylor Baby. A very good beginner guitar.

This. Forget Taylor Swift, she doesnt even deserve a signature model of anything (except maybe a place in the hall of shame for not being able to write any lyrics besides breaking up with her boyfriends)

Re: Taylor Swift Taylor signature acoustc?

the baby DN is awesome. I thought about picking one up for myself. I would go with that. They swift model is kind of cheesey and if i am not mistaken costs a little more than the other baby models.

the baby taylor line is awesome though certainly what i would go for if you wanted to get her an acousitc.


It may sound sort of lame too but Luna guitars aren't too bad. They are made by Dean guitars but they have smaller bodies and necks which is great. I know my wife had a hard time playing acoustic simply because the acoustic was so big.

And what else is a super-successful young lady going to find to write about? Breakups and other strongly emotional subjects have been the cornerstones of pop music since, well... pop music!!!

It's probably been a while since Ms Swift has had any other real hardships that she could find to write about

Re: Taylor Swift Taylor signature acoustc?

Oops. I was looking at the Taylor Swift model because I thought "small Taylor" and saw in the results the GS Mini which is $500. The other Baby Taylors are Googling at the same price as the Taylor Swifts.

Thanks for the input.

Re: Taylor Swift Taylor signature acoustc?

I've seen the swift's model and have considered it for my daughter....I was a little thrown off by two tiny screws on the fretboard - wasn't sure what that was all about. But google is my friend and now I know. I'd say get it, I remember it sounding and playing great.

As for Swift, she's a great talent, her songs deal with what she knows, however she doesn't ONLY write about breakups. Those songs just tend to be more popular. What makes me appreciate Taylor is she writes her songs, there is a connection. Most Top 40 artists today are delivered songs to sing in a studio. +1 for Swift in my opinion.

Want a tear jerker - go listen to Ronan...

Otherwise - as Taylor would say with her Grammy winning song "Why ya gotta be so mean?" (a song not related to a break up)
