      Taylor T3/B Semi Hollowbody Electric Guitar w/ Bigsby (109126458)
Availability:  


A semi-hollowbody with gorgeous looks and a whole new tonal range.

Inspired by both the T5 and the SolidBody, with the T3/B we take the classic semi-hollowbody sound and apply signature Taylor design touches. Pickup are Taylor's high-fidelity full-size humbuckers, blended with with a unique coil-splitting application to give players killer humbucker and single coil sounds in one guitar. The T3/B features a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece paired with a metal roller bridge to give players a high-performance vibrato bar without the pitch issues.

The T3 continues Taylor's quest to expand the range of tones available to the electric player. Inspired by both the Taylor T5 and the SolidBody, they've taken the classic semi-hollowbody sound and applied signature Taylor design and tonal touches, blending high-definition Style 2 pickups with coil-splitting capability to give players killer humbucker and single-coil sounds in one electric guitar. A push-pull tone knob brings two sweeping modes of tone control.

What's great about the Taylor T3 is the way it enhances a semi-hollowbody's essential sound, transforming it into a hotrod guitar capable of a wider range of tones as a result of Taylor pickups, coil-splitting, and unique tone control. All on top of signature Taylor traits you can always count on, like superb intonation and easy playability.

Pickups
The T3 features a pair of full-size, Style 2 HD (high definition) humbuckers. A three-way switch covers three standard configurations: neck pickup, neck/bridge and bridge pickup. A twist was added using old-school coil-splitting. Pulling up on the volume knob splits the humbucker coils into single coils for brighter, punchier tones.

Push/Pull Control Knobs
The T3's volume and tone knobs both utilize push/pull pots, which give players two tiers of unique tone control. Pulling up on the volume knob activates a coil splitter, which in effect turns the humbuckers into single coils. The guitar's three-way switch functions the same way, allowing you to choose between full neck, neck/bridge and full bridge single coil tones. In its down position, the tone knob boosts the midrange. Pulling up the knob engages a second capacitor, which mellows the tone without squashing it into a muddy sound. Within that tonal range is a fresh Taylor electric voice: a mellow, old-school jazz tone that's loaded with warmth and fatness. And there's a lot of cool rock tones inbetween.

Body/Neck Design
The sapele T3 body is designed as a semi-hollowbody electric. The body is hollowed out except for a solid block of wood that runs down the length of the center. The T3 has no acoustic bracing inside it. The quilted maple top is laid directly on top of the internal block like the Taylor Solid Body. The sapele neck incorporates Taylor's rock-solid single-bolt T-Lock and a precisely milled pocket spacer is used to secure the perfect neck angle. The Taylor T3 has beefier electric-style frets, giving electric players a familiar feel.
