A rocking body design with the versatility of a three-pickup configuration for an experience like no other.

The electric 12-string playing experience doesn’t get much better than what you’ll find on the T5z-12 Custom, which boasts a gorgeous flamed koa top with a shaded edgeburst. Like its 6-string counterpart, the 12-string 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, making this arguably the versatile electric/acoustic 12-string around. It’s also the most playable, thanks to Taylor’s dual compensated saddle, which aligns the height of the fundamental and octave strings in a single plane across the top for a smooth, even attack and sound. Additional appointments include white binding, gold hardware and Taylor’s progressive Spires inlay scheme. The guitar ships in a T5z Deluxe Brown Hardshell case.

    Comments about Taylor T5z Custom Koa Top Acoustic-Electric 12 String Guitar:

    This is an excellent guitar, an absolute joy to play. Unlike previously owned 12 string guitars this stays in tune. The guitar sounds great alone but when it's plugged in, it sounds amazing. Not only the 5 position switch but the volume and tone controls give you a multitude of different tones.
