The perfect hybrid of slinky electric guitar feel and the natural charm of an acoustic.
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 solid body), appealing to electric players with its 12" fretboard radius (compared to 15" on the T5), jumbo frets that make bending strings easier, and slightly more feedback resistance with high-gain distortion. As it's name suggest, this T5z Custom Cocobolo acoustic-electric guitar is a hybrid electric-acoustic topped with cocobolo, a dense tonewood that is not only full of different color grain patterns but produces robust bass with shimmering highs. It also features a sapele body with mahogany neck, and genuine West African ebony fretboard, bridge and peghead overlay. The T5z Custom Cocobolo is appointed with white binding and mother-of-pearl fretboard and peghead inlays (Classic 900 Series design), and complemented by an all-gloss finish. Other specifications include a 1-11/16” nut width, 24-7/8” scale length, 12” fretboard radius, jumbo frets, and bone saddle and nut, along with gold hardware. It includes standard T5 electronics with five-way switching, and ships in a deluxe Taylor hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.
