Taylor's Game-Changing Acoustic-Electric - With a Stunning Koa Top

Taylor has added a nice little treat to the world of hollowbody hybrid acoustic-electric axes with the Taylor T5 Custom electric guitar. This beauty boasts a distinctive look and a tone of its own with its Hawaiian koa top, sapele back and sides in a comfortable T5 shape with a Venetian cutaway. This resounding hollowbody offers a snug sapele neck, a smooth ebony fretboard with 21 jumbo frets, appealing white binding, a custom modern pickup complement, and flashy gold Taylor tuners. Upgrade your game in sonic style and visual appeal with this top-notch Taylor acoustic-electric!

The Sonic Appeal of Hawaiian Koa and Sapele

A tropical tonewood, Hawaiian koa will place more emphasis on your Taylor T5's higher frequencies for a bright sound that rolls off nicely and warms with age. Your T5's sapele back and sides offer the pleasant low and mid tones expected from mahogany guitars, and it pairs well with Hawaiian koa by adding an appealing note of body and tight, focused sonic articulation.

Where Acoustic Meets Electric

Your Taylor T5 sits right on the fringe of where acoustic guitars meet electric axes. This baby offers the best of both worlds -- plugged in, you get the rich and resounding tones of a hollowbody electric, and unplugged you get the full-bodied warmth and depth of an acoustic guitar. This sonic treasure's invitingly present unplugged sound also opens up doors for interesting miking options when recording or playing a gig.

Custom Pickup Orientation

To give your T5's electronic system a more singular sound, Taylor has designed a three-pickup orientation. An exposed bridge humbucker captures a slightly brighter sound from your strings, and a hidden sensor inside your T5 captures the warm resonance that your Hawaiian koa and sapele body produces. A third, also hidden, neck humbucker will capture a slightly beefier sound with more mids and low end. A five-way switch gives you plenty of sonic options -- so use these three pickups in any combination to suit your aural desires.

Dressed to Kill

Aside from producing a stellar acoustic-electric sound, your Taylor T5 Custom axe looks fantastic. This baby's Hawaiian-koa-topped body displays a wonderful grain pattern that as visually appealing as it is sonically. This guitar's smooth ebony fretboard and spires inlays also adds fashionable flair. Topping off your T5's classy threads are posh Taylor gold tuners.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
