Sleek and fast body paired with 3-pickup system.
The deep color and rich grain of a mahogany top give the T5z Classic a vintage, earthy character. Distinctive T5z features include a more compact body than the original T5, a 12" fretboard radius, and jumbo frets, which add up to a fast, fluid playing experience that makes string bends fun. Like the T5, the T5z is equipped with a three-pickup configuration of an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls, giving players an incredibly versatile electric/acoustic guitar. Appointments include Small Diamond inlays and nickel hardware, an unbound body and satin classic mahogany finish. The guitar ships in a T5z gig bag.

Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Acoustic Electric Guitar:
I bought one of these after attending a Taylor "Roadshow". The "Z" model has a smaller body and 12" FB Radius and generally has a more "electric" feel when playing. It's super light and won't break your back. The tone is superb and fit and finish beyond excellent. Of all the T5z's I think this one is the best value. I run mine through an acoustic amp as well as my tube amp. Unplugged it's a great practice guitar that won't wake everyone up. It won't replace your 'Paul, 'Strat, or your favorite full body acoustic...but it has a great character and versatility all to itself. Open mic events are great with this instrument as I only need one guitar.
The playing experience is superb although I do worry about pick marks. I generally just use my fingers but for aggressive pickers you may need a guard installed.
The other day I ran it through my tube amp with a "pie" clone pedal and the tones were insane - very "Gilmourish".
Definitely give it a tryout (or it's more "acoustic built" cousin - the T5).
