OVERVIEW

High performance electronics and signature Taylor design.

Inspired by both the T5 and the SolidBody, Taylor takes the classic semi-hollowbody sound and applies signature Taylor design touches to the T3. Electronics include Taylor's high-fidelity full-size Vintage Alnico humbuckers, blended with a unique coil-splitting application to give players killer humbucker and single coil sounds in one guitar. The T3 features a metal roller bridge paired with stop tailpiece. Includes hardshell case.

The HD (high definition) humbuckers reflect two Taylor design developments. They've altered the focus and direction of the magnetic flux with a new type of magnet and brewed up a secret recipe for the windings. This results in pickups that produce the sweet sound of vintage humbuckers with increased dynamic range and output.

The T3 incorporates enhanced electronics that include coil-splitting activated by pulling up the volume control. Taylor designer David Hosler talked about the thinking that went into the tone control circuit. "Many guitarists have learned not to expect much from a tone control. We decided to do something to make it useful. When pulled up, the T3' tone control adds a second capacitor to the circuit creating a quasi-parametric sweep throughout the range of the control. Players can use the boosted mids to add a little warmth to the single-coil or mellow out the humbuckers for an even jazzier tone without squashing it into a muddy sound."

    Comments about Taylor T3 Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is amazing. The neck is perfect. The electronics allows you to find a sound the fits what you are playing. It is built with the professionalism you would expect of a Taylor guitar. I love it. I don't understand why Taylor does not plug it more.

    I have played a Taylor 310 Acoustic for years and the T3 did not disappoint me. As a matter it may well be the best electric guitar I have owned.
