    Comments about Taylor T5z Custom Cutaway T5 Electronics Koa Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    You can literally do any style of music with this guitar from centuries old baroque classical to metal grunge. This guitar is consistently perfect, stays in tune (which speaks to it's masterful craftsmanship) and it sounds so good through a versatile amp that you needn't ever switch to a different guitar. You could play a 'jukebox' gig where you just play anything requested and dial in the sound with the 5 way and tonal controls and nail every style and nuance. I treat this instrument like a stratovarius {sp.?} and it is a little delicate due to it's size but be nice to it and it will last. I honestly am astonished at the quality of sounds that I can achieve, especially when recording and again, I have a very expensive and rangy collection to choose from. I don't need my Gibson SG for powerful, bluesy Allman bros licks; I don't need my Gibson Les Paul trad. LL with FR for rock or metal; I don't need my Alvarez custom concert hall acoustic or my classical. Seriously this guitar does it all with clarity and passion. Yes, you are paying a decent price for this guitar but it's real worth is in the overall quality and the exotic tonal woods that are combined to create a resonant and vibrational masterpiece of modern guitar engineering. Years ago, this guitar was not possible. Real connoisseurs will understand when I say I can only play my warrior Michael dran bass for bottom end because it's the only way I can match the quality of the top end freqs. this guitar manages. I hope this helps you decide and my next guitar will be the 12 string version of this one.

      Comments about Taylor T5z Custom Cutaway T5 Electronics Koa Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The fact you don't need to plug-in this beautifully made guitar to practice is a plus, however, the wide variety of multiple sounds you pull out when plugged in is amazing. I use it with both an acoustic amp and a non-acoustic amp and I'm truly surprised at the number of tones you can dial-in. I'm considering a T5z Koa 12 string as well.
