OVERVIEW

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 had a Taylor T5 and loved it but it was hard to hold or play while sitting down for long periods of time. This T5z is the perfect size to play standing or sitting. It is also amazingly light so you can play a lot longer without getting fatigued. The electronics are excellent though you will have to work a bit through your pedals and amps to get a true acoustic sound. That isn't a complaint because it has enough sounds and variations to keep you experimenting a long time.

      Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Acoustic Electric Guitar:

      If you're loaded, jump in. It's a versatile instrument and it really snarls as an electric. If you're going into hock and you want a one guitar that does it all, I'd advise looking elsewhere. As an electric you will miss the high frets that get you to glory. Kinda disappointed that Taylor says to use 11s. I'm putting 10's on when I get the bone saddle and pins I ordered. This magogany model at $1600 comes in a bag too. Fooey.

        Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        The T5Z Classic has a sweet tone unplugged, You will need to spend some time setting up the tone on both Electric & Acoustic Amps. Real nice feedback at low volumes, 335ish. Kind of Midrange Heavy. Acoustic is great for fingerpicking, not so good for hard strummer's. Overall, this is a great guitar with a tone of it's only. It's not a Strat, Tele, Les Paul but if you spend sometime setting it up you will have a dream guitar.
        I love playing it and looks cool too.

          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).
