Taylor T5z Custom Electric Guitar

Say hello to the T5z Custom, an impressive addition to the Taylor T5 family. Designed with electric players in mind, the T5z brings more of an electric guitar look and feel to the popular hollowbody hybrid electric-acoustic T5 series. Electric-friendly features include a more compact body than the original T5, plus a 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets that making bending strings easier. If you're looking for a versatile stage or recording guitar that blends the feel of an electric with a full range of acoustic and electric tones, the T5z gives you an essential musical tool.

Electric/Acoustic Versatility

Like the original T5, the T5z bridges the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar, unleashing a sweeping array of amplified tones. The hollowbody design features an active soundboard to produce a natural acoustic voice and incorporates three pickups: an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker. Crossover design features include dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls that let you shift from shimmering acoustic to screaming electric in an instant.

Taylor's T5z Custom models celebrate the debut of the sleek T5z. Features include an upgrade to AA-grade Hawaiian koa for the shaded edgeburst top, an additional peghead inlay to complement the Spires fretboard inlay motif.

Like the original T5, the electric/acoustic hollowbody hybrid boasts five-way switching, onboard tone controls, and dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps.

Features:

- Compact hollowbody design
- 12-inch fretboard radius
- Jumbo frets
- 24-7/8-inch scale length
- 1 acoustic pickup / 2 electric humbuckers
- Five-way switching and onboard tone controls
- Compatible with electric and acoustic amps

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I got a blemished T5z and I still haven't found the blemish. The guitar is well above what I expected in diversity of sound. From full on Acoustic to Metal this guitar has it all. I did get a touch of feedback but I had everything turned all the way up and after I adjusted the amp it sounded great. The five settings pretty much cover everything I play. This was my first Taylor but it probably won't be my last.
Musical Background:
