Taylor's original hollowbody hybrid electric/acoustic T5 family has flourished and grown since the debut of the original T5 in 2005. The game-changing design bridged the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar, giving gigging players a dynamic range of amplified acoustic flavors, all in one guitar. The magic is in Taylor's blend of proprietary pickup designs and switching capability. An active soundboard and a magnetic acoustic body sensor capture a natural-sounding acoustic voice, while a pair of electric pickups – a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker – crank out an array of electric sounds. Five-way switching and onboard tone controls enable players to flick from warm jazz to vintage blues to heavy distortion in an instant. The T5's dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps (or both with an A/B box) translates into a broad sonic palette for players to tap into.
The T5's newer sibling, the T5z, packs all that great capability into a more compact body size (closer to a solidbody), appealing to electric players with its 12-in. fretboard radius (compared to 15-in. on the T5), jumbo frets that make bending strings easier, and slightly more feedback resistance with high-gain distortion. This T5z Classic Deluxe features a sapele body and neck, a mahogany top, classic mahogany stain with shaded edgeburst and gloss finish (entire guitar), ebony fretboard with 12 in. radius and jumbo frets, 24-7/8 in. scale length, 1-11/16 in. nut width, pearl Small Diamonds fretboard inlay, Taylor Nickel tuners and T5 electronics with 5-way switching.
The guitar ships in a T5z Deluxe hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.
