|HEAD TO HEAD COMPARISON|
Taylor BBT Big Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar
+ The kit included with the Yamaha FS850 has everything you need to save money and get to strumming your new guitar.
+ 15/16 size of a dreadnought guitar, so it’s slightly smaller but produces similar output
|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
We liked the Yamaha FS850 because it’s a small body with a large punch. There’s nothing small about the volume or the tones that this acoustic guitar produces!
We love the upscaled size of the BBT from the Baby Taylor. It’s still portable but it doesn’t reduce any of the sound output of a normal dreadnought guitar.
