An African relative of rosewood, Ovangkol lends rosewood-inspired sonic properties to the T5 Classic (T5-X). The result is a full acoustic midrange with bright trebles that are accentuated by the T5s fully-hollow design. Then switch to the T5s electric side and discover just how versatile a guitar can be.
The Taylor T5-X Classic Hollowbody Electric Guitar has amazing presence. This version of the Taylor T5 electric guitar is crafted with a solid Ovangkol top, chrome hardware, and microdot fretboard inlays.
A resonant, fully hollow thinline body is the backbone of the T5. Its comfort and playability is unquestionable, with the performance freedom of a solidbody and the feel and sound of a beloved Taylor acoustic. Whether played through an electric or acoustic amp, it delivers a fantastic range of pure tones from smooth, strumming acoustic to crunchy electric chords.
Electronics include a unique 5-way pickup system composed of a magnetic acoustic humbucker, magnetic electric humbucker, and a single Dynamic Body Sensor soundboard pickup, as well as a preamp system for mixing up the exact tone you need. A bone nut and saddle, stylized F-holes, a sapele neck and body, and an ebony fretboard and headstock overlay are standard.
