Taylor's T5z 12-String Special-Edition acoustic-electric guitar features a reverse-strung setup, where the position of the fundamental and the octave strings is swapped, so the fundamental string sits above the octave. Sonically, this translates into a sound where the fundamental string is heard before the octave string, creating a subtle, beautiful, rich voice that is clean and focused. If you're looking for an incredible 12-String, reminiscent of the classic tone of such great artists like the Byrds and The Beatle, the Taylor T5z 12-String is a great choice.

Other notable features include a gloss finish, genuine West African bridge and fingerboard, Taylor's T5z Electronic System, and a Taylor Deluxe hardshell case for maximum protection.

Taylor's original hollowbody hybrid electric/acoustic T5 family is a game-changing design that bridged the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar. Taylor's T5 design offers gigging musicians a dynamic range of amplified acoustic and electric flavors all in one guitar. The magic is in Taylor's blend of proprietary pickup designs and switching capability.

12-String Design
Building remarkable 12-strings is part of Taylor's heritage. Ease-of-play, neck stability, intonation, and overall tone has made them among the most popular 12-strings on the market. Taylor's T5z neck system allows precise tuning and low action, resulting in extremely comfortable "handfeel" in a 12-string guitar.
