I called GC yesterday and found the Baby Taylor was not included in their sale, but the guy volunteered to sell it with the same discount as their Black Friday deals, and to hold the price for today. So, today I ventured out on empty freeways and in an empty store.
While playing the Baby Taylor I spotted Martin's equivalent (just $20 more). After noodling for a while, I had a store employee play both, and he also volunteered to play the Taylor GS Mini (a 7/8 guitar). The GS Mini is definitely a step up, and I was tempted, but decided to buy the Baby Taylor. The only goofy thing is the neck of the Baby Taylor is attached by two very visible screws!
Because of the Christmas season, GC has extended their 45 days return policy to January 31st, and products can be returned to any of their stores nation wide. So, maybe there's a GS Mini upgrade in my future, when we get back to the Golden State.
