Taylor T5Z Custom Hollowbody Hybrid Acoustic/Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case
The Taylor T5z Custom allows you to get fully acoustic sounds and fully electric sounds from the same guitar. Seamlessly. It's designed to be used with both acoustic and electric amps using a standard guitar cable or a balanced cable. Think about what an amazing advantage that is when you're performing! If you're in the mood for shredding, the shortened scale length and jumbo frets ensure a fingerboard (ebony) that is endlessly pleasureable to play with either electric or acoustic strings.
The Taylor T5z Custom features a whole new generation of electronics. Tones are selected via the easy access 5-way switch located on the side of the guitar . Two pickups - a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker - produce a truly impressive range of electric guitar tone, while the an acoustic body sensor system delivers breathtaking acoustic sounds. Inspired by the research on the Expression System, the T5z body sensors are overwound to produce the sparkling highs and shimmer for the most acoustic-like switch position. The T5z Custom's preamp was designed to deliver a wide range of tones in every switch position. Controls include Volume, Bass and Treble.
Inspired by the Taylor Grand Auditorium silhouette, the T5z Custom features a sleek and comfortable-to-hold carved hollowbody of sapele. Like all Taylor guitars, a custom-voiced soundboard is the heart of the T5z tone; the AA Hawaiian koa top creates a strong, colorful voice with prodigious sustain. Finally, stylized f-holes command the eye and enhance the resonance of the body chamber, allowing the top to breathe and capture the dynamics your performances.
