Taylor T5z Classic Deluxe Hollowbody - Gloss Shaded Edgeburst
Next-gen Acoustic-electric, for a Song
Sweetwater's guitar pickers are big fans of Taylor's T5 Thinline acoustic-electric. With the T5z Classic Special Edition, Taylor gives you even more features that will make you feel right at home if you're coming from a solidbody electric. They've thinned out the body even more, and the ebony fingerboard with a 12" radius and jumbo frets makes comfort and string bending a dream. And the range of available sounds is far beyond what we've come to expect from traditional acoustic or electric guitars. With the T5z Classic Special Edition, there's no limit to your sonic possibilities.
Acoustic or electric: you decide
The Taylor T5z Classic Special Edition allows you to get fully acoustic sounds and fully electric sounds from the same guitar. It's designed to be used with both acoustic and electric amps using a standard guitar cable or balanced cable. Think about what an amazing advantage you'll have when performing! If you're primarily a solidbody slinger, you'll particularly appreciate the T5z's fast sapele neck. And the shortened scale length and jumbo frets ensure a fingerboard (ebony) that is endlessly pleasurable to play.
The Taylor T5z Classic Special Edition features a groundbreaking set 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 an impressive range of electric guitar tone, while an acoustic body sensor system delivers breathtaking acoustic sounds. Inspired by the research on the Expression System, the T5z body sensors deliver natural, warm, and woody tone.
Sleek, comfortable, resonant body
Inspired by the Taylor Grand Auditorium silhouette, the T5z Classic Special Edition features a sleek and comfortable-to-hold carved sapele hollow body. Like all Taylor guitars, a custom-voiced soundboard is the heart of the T5z's tone; the Tropical mahogany 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 of your performances.
