Last weekend I spent some time with a Taylor Big Baby (BB), a Taylor GS-Mini and a Martin Dreadnought Junior. Believe it or not, I found the BB a wee bit big and awkward. The scale is also a full 25.3" I found the GS and D. Jr. comfortable and easy to play. Each sounded different but I liked the sound of both them. Both have shorter scale lengths, GS is 23.5" and the D Jr is 24". I just like my smaller bodied guitars.
