Overview

The deep color and rich grain of a mahogany top give the T5z-12 Classic a vintage, earthy character. Electric-friendly features include a compact body, a 12" fretboard radius and jumbo frets, which add up to a fast, fluid playing experience. Like its six-string sibling, the 12-string incorporates a three-pickup configuration with an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls, giving players an incredibly versatile electric-acoustic 12-string. Appointments include Small Diamond inlays and nickel hardware, an unbound body, and satin classic mahogany finish. 


Gig bag included.

    Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric 12 String Guitar:

    Great guitar, Very easy to play. Came setup great out of the box. Fit and finish are typically Taylor. There is a wide variety of sounds to be gotten out of this guitar but it isn't as acoustic-y as one might think or want. I added and undersaddle pickup to a 2nd jack which cured that issue. Nice on-board electronics.

    Just a note, This guitar DOES NOT come with a hardshell case. It comes with a Taylor gig bag. The gig bag is nice and well padded but it isn't a hardshell case. The standard T5z case will fit it though and is available should you want it but know that it doesn't come with the guitar.

      Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric 12 String Guitar:

      Great sounding guitar, but can you believe this very-expensive beauty comes in a cheap gig bag? Mine got damaged after a gig because of insufficient protection of the bag. I don't like the guitar anymore. It still plays fine, but it feels like it's damaged good. I never buy Taylor again.

      Great Guitar

      Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric 12 String Guitar:

      I have the six string version of this guitar and absolutely love it. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the twelve string version. I was not disappointed. Same great Taylor quality, playability and sound. The six string comes with a Taylor hard shell case, the twelve string does not. I understand the extra $100 for the twelve string, just feel Taylor ought to ship it with the hard case! With that said, if you're looking for an awesome 12 string, this is it.

      Comments about Taylor T5z Classic Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric 12 String Guitar:

      I recently started playing guitar and always loved the sound of a 12 string. This particular guitar was the easiest to play, hands down! You can strum without being plugged in and have a light accoustic sound. Yet, you can plug in your amp and ramp it up. So many options from accoustic to electric. This Taylor has it all!
