A Hawaiian Koa top makes this T5 Custom practically irresistible. A delicate edge-burst sets off Koa's dramatic figure and variation, accented by Gold hardware and Abalone Artist inlays. The T5's performance matches its over-the-top good looks with a versatile range of electric and acoustic tones, plugged into both acoustic and electric amps.

The Acoustic and Electric Worlds Have Merged
Thirty years ago, Taylor couldn't have imagined building an electric guitar. Now, after a relentless pursuit of innovation, the Taylor T5 electric guitar feels like a natural next step.
A lot can happen in the course of 3 decades. They listened closely as playing styles evolved and the line between acoustic and electric began to blur. They evolved, too. Taylor honed their craft, inventing new pickups and pushing technology into totally new territory. The time for a guitar with real electric and acoustic tones has arrived.
Beginning with a fully-hollow thinline body that makes your acoustic tone authentic, they designed the Taylor T5 to perform equally well through both electric and acoustic amps.
Thanks to its humbucking pickups and proprietary body sensor, the Taylor T5 electric guitar produces a versatile range of pure analog tones from strumming acoustic to crunch electric and everything in between. No catches, no compromises. One flick of its 5-way switch and you're on your way.
Available in T5 Standard and T5 Custom configurations, the T5 features sapele back and sides with your choice of spruce, maple, or koa tops as well as stylized f-holes, 5-way pickup, electric Nanoweb coated Elixir Strings, Taylor T-Lock neck joint, and a variety of sunburst and colored finishes.
What's your tone today? Where do you want to take it tomorrow? Wherever you're going, the Taylor T5 electric guitar will help you get there.
