Overview

Inspired by both the T5 and the SolidBody, Taylor takes the classic semi-hollowbody sound and applies signature Taylor design touches to the T3/B. Electronics include Taylor's high-fidelity full-size Vintage Alnico humbuckers, blended 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 for a high-performance vibrato bar without the pitch issues. Includes hardshell case.

The HD (high definition) humbuckers reflect two Taylor design developments. They™ve altered the focus and direction of the magnetic flux with a new type of magnet and brewed up a secret recipe for the windings. This results in pickups that produce the sweet sound of vintage humbuckers with increased dynamic range and output.

The T3 incorporates enhanced electronics that include coil-splitting activated by pulling up the volume control. Taylor designer David Hosler talked about the thinking that went into the tone control circuit. "Many guitarists have learned not to expect much from a tone control. We decided to do something to make it useful. When pulled up, the T3' tone control adds a second capacitor to the circuit creating a quasi-parametric sweep throughout the range of the control. Players can use the boosted mids to add a little warmth to the single-coil or mellow out the humbuckers for an even jazzier tone without squashing it into a muddy sound."

Comments about Taylor T3/B Semi-Hollowbody with Bigsby Electric Guitar:

If you know guitars or not. If you play everyday or just a few times a month you have got to get a Taylor T 3. You can gig with it, jam with it is so versatile you will not believe it.
Every time I play out, guitar players come up to me and are amazed on how this Taylor sounds and looks.
I'm so thrilled to have it.
Oh and by the way I waited 1 year before sending in this review.
