OVERVIEW

A hybrid hollowbody with improved electronics for authentic acoustic and electric tones.

Designed with electric players in mind, the T5z brings more of an electric guitar look and feel to the popular hollowbody hybrid electric-acoustic T5 series. Electric-friendly features include a more compact body than the original T5, plus a 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets that making bending strings easier. If you're looking for a versatile stage or recording guitar that blends the feel of an electric with a full range of acoustic and electric tones, the T5z gives you an essential musical tool.

Electric/Acoustic Versatility
Like the original T5, the T5z bridges the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar, unleashing a sweeping array of amplified tones. The hollowbody design features an active soundboard to produce a natural acoustic voice and incorporates three pickups: an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker. Crossover design features include dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls that let you shift from shimmering acoustic to screaming electric in an instant. Includes case.

FEATURES
  • Compact hollowbody design
  • Koa top
  • 12" fretboard radius
  • Jumbo frets
  • 24-7/8" scale length
  • 1 acoustic pickup / 2 electric humbuckers
  • Five-way switching and onboard tone controls
  • Dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps
  • Includes case

Comments about Taylor T5z Custom Cutaway T5 Electronics Koa Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

MF listed this as a blem so I got $$$ off, but all I could find was a little tiny light spot on fretboard. No nicks or dings. The koa top, snow white binding and ebony fretboard is simply magnificent in appearance. The rich grain of the koa under the high gloss finish almost glows. As with any high end Taylor, great craftsmanship and attention to detail is obvious.

Playability is excellent, too. The neck is fast and easy. The frets are big fat electric guitar frets very conducive to note bending.

Many tones are available from the multiple PuPs on the T5z, and I am only beginning to explore them. Through my AER alpha acoustic amp, the pure acoustic position brings a sweet rich version of the signature Taylor shimmering high end. The middle position (exposed bridge double stacked humbucker)offers a Tele type twang, while the other end of the switch brings warm hollowbody tones. Played through an overdriven Orange Tiny Terror, its a whole other beast; filthy thick grunginess, with tones and sustain that make you wonder that its not a solid body.

Hard to believe that a hybrid like this does all things well, but I'm a believer!

        Feels great, plays great, looks great. Plays like a Custom, sounds like an acoustic or electric. Great for acoustic lead work. I think I'll be hanging on to this one.
