There are electric guitars, there are acoustic guitars; then there's the Taylor T5z Classic.With the T5z Classic, 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 spec'd the buttery ebony fingerboard with a 12" radius and jumbo frets to make string bending even easier. And the range of available sounds? Far beyond what we've come to expect from traditional acoustic or electric guitars. With the T5z Classic, there's no limit to your sonic possibilities!
The Taylor T5z Classic 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 primarily a solidbody slinger, you'll particularly appreciate the T5z's fast sapele neck. 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 Classic 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.
