Taylor

Description

The electric 12-string playing experience doesn’t get much better than what you’ll find on the T5z-12 Custom, which boasts a gorgeous flamed koa top with a shaded edgeburst. Like its 6-string counterpart, the 12-string is equipped with a three-pickup configuration of an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls, making this arguably the versatile electric/acoustic 12-string around. It’s also the most playable, thanks to Taylor’s dual compensated saddle, which aligns the height of the fundamental and octave strings in a single plane across the top for a smooth, even attack and sound. Additional appointments include white binding, gold hardware and Taylor’s progressive Spires inlay scheme. The guitar ships in a T5z Deluxe Brown Hardshell case.
