I'm looking for a baby taylor at the moment (beat up or not, used prefered). So are you saying I need to buy a pre-2007 baby taylor?

Would love to see a picture, would you please post one. I own a solid mahogany back/sides w/ spruce top in satin finish and it sounds gorgeous. It is not only great sounding but much easier to just grab and go than my larger/heavier Heritage Sweeet 16. Thanks.
I found these pictures online of one exactly like mine...
Larrivee made three different types of these... The first batch was unbound, and was made to use up tonewood blanks that were too small for full size guitars. They were a huge hit, and they started making nicer ones like mine that had maple binding. Now the Larrivee parlor is so well known, they make it in a fancy schmancy high end version with lots of mother of pearl bling. I really like my plain jane one. It has beautiful sound for fingerpicking and incredible sustain. It's a perfect little couch guitar. I keep it in my office.
I played a Mahogany one once and it sounded a tiny bit fuller, but not as forward sounding- more boxy than mine. I got a bone saddle and nut, which I think had something to do with making it brighter and up front too.
