Special hybrid offers a familiar feel for both electric or acoustic players with dual humbucker pickups for tonal versatility.

Taylor's original hollowbody hybrid electric/acoustic T5 family has flourished and grown since the debut of the original T5 in 2005. The game-changing design bridged the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar, giving gigging players a dynamic range of amplified acoustic flavors, all in one guitar. The magic is in Taylor's blend of proprietary pickup designs and switching capability. An active soundboard and a magnetic acoustic body sensor capture a natural-sounding acoustic voice, while a pair of electric pickups – a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker – crank out an array of electric sounds. Five-way switching and onboard tone controls enable players to flick from warm jazz to vintage blues to heavy distortion in an instant. The T5's dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps (or both with an A/B box) translates into a broad sonic palette for players to tap into.

The T5's newer sibling, the T5z, packs all that great capability into a more compact body size (closer to a solidbody), appealing to electric players with its 12-in. fretboard radius (compared to 15-in. on the T5), jumbo frets that make bending strings easier, and slightly more feedback resistance with high-gain distortion. This Limited Edition T5z Custom features a sapele body, Macassar ebony top, sapele neck, ebony fretboard, 24-7/8 in. scale length, 1-11/16 in. nut width, Spires fretboard inlay, trans black body/neck with light trans black shaded edgeburst top, gloss-finish body and neck, black binding, Taylor Gold tuners, and T5 electronics with 5-way switching.

The guitar ships in a T5z Deluxe hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Not a believable acoustic or electric

By kev

from Plymouth MA

Comments about Taylor Limited Edition T5z Custom Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Tried 2 different versions. A Sitka top & Koa top through a Bose with T1 tone match. Sound on both was too thin on acoustic setting. Electric sounds might be passable through an electric tube amp but you need a lot of diff pedals for that. Biggest problem was the tuners, they just don't stay in tune. Overall the price is way beyond what you get for the quality of the product. Taylor custom builds them for REO & others with special tuners and electronics then they use a mieriad of special effects. Might just as well buy a PRS P-22 and get a get a pedal or two to modify the signal going into your Bose like I did. Now I get a believable acoustic tone with decent electric sounds as well.
