Product Description

The deep color and rich grain of a mahogany top give the Taylor T5z Classic a vintage, earthy character. Distinctive T5z features include a more compact body than the original T5, a 12-inch fretboard radius, and jumbo frets, which add up to a fast, fluid playing experience that makes string bends fun.

Like the T5, the T5z 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, giving players an incredibly versatile electric/acoustic guitar. Appointments include Small Diamond inlays and nickel hardware, an unbound body and satin classic mahogany finish. The guitar ships in a T5z gig bag.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Taylor T5z Classic Electric Guitar "
Overall: The T5z is a lightweight electric hybrid guitar the emulates the sounds of both and acoustic and electric guitar. The neck is an electric neck with heavy frets. This makes playing easy for electric and acoustic style. Acoustic style: The guitar plays well plugged into an amp and can be played without, but not so that you would want to play it over a regular acoustic. It does have the electric neck which makes bending and playing easier though. The sound is good enough for practice but you could not play un-amplified. Electric: You can pretty much do what you want in terms of electric style. It has nice sound and the pickups work for different degrees of pickup activation in five settings. For an overall guitar to play it is not a bad option and can do what you want it to do. If you were playing hard rock I would go with a fender, reverend, etc. I play a bit of everything so it works for me and I am satisfied. I think the higher priced taylors in the version are probably nicer looking, but in terms of playability they are the same. It would come down to springing the dollars for the higher grades. It does not come with a hardshell case and in a dry climate you would probably want a hardshell for humidity consistency. The tuners go out of tune (especially on the g string) a bit easier that my other guitars. I own Martins, Blueridge, Wechter, Tacoma and Aria instruments. This is the first Taylor and it is a nice guitar. I think it may be a bit high priced for this version. Taylor has the market on the hybrid electric and like Martin can hold the price on their terms.
Style of Music: Play mainly string/bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
