OVERVIEW

A hybrid hollowbody with improved electronics for authentic acoustic and electric tones.

Designed with electric players in mind, the T5z brings more of an electric guitar look and feel to the popular hollowbody hybrid electric-acoustic T5 series. Electric-friendly features include a more compact body than the original T5, plus a 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets that making bending strings easier. If you're looking for a versatile stage or recording guitar that blends the feel of an electric with a full range of acoustic and electric tones, the T5z gives you an essential musical tool.

Electric/Acoustic Versatility
Like the original T5, the T5z bridges the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar, unleashing a sweeping array of amplified tones. The hollowbody design features an active soundboard to produce a natural acoustic voice and incorporates three pickups: an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker. Crossover design features include dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls that let you shift from shimmering acoustic to screaming electric in an instant. Includes case.

FEATURES
  • Compact hollowbody design
  • Maple top
  • 12" fretboard radius
  • Jumbo frets
  • 24-7/8" scale length
  • 1 acoustic pickup / 2 electric humbuckers
  • Five-way switching and onboard tone controls
  • Dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps
  • Includes case

    Comments about Taylor T5z Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    A++ product! I'm using this T5Z, in a stunning molasses finish, for jazz. Position 2 sounds like a full Gibson arch top while position 4 sounds like a ES 355 (which was a former axe I used for Carlton, Ritenour, Benson-like sounds; yeah I'm dating myself). The small footprint and lightweight design are a pleasure for those of us that don't want to strap 7+ pounds of curly maple ash around our neck. Such transparent design I believe allows us to focus on tones and playing rather than accommodating our style and tone to a specific form (I.e. ergonomics). I'm using medium flat wound strings.

    Unlike the full T5, it seems the body sensor pickup on the Z is a waste (Taylor is positioning this product as a 335 substitute, but I don't see 335 users wanting acoustic tones). Speaking of which this Z will never sub for my 714 nor 414 LTD. Not even close.

    Fit and finish are museum quality. Yeah the smallish body size won't truly low-frequency-resonate like a true fat body arch top, but enough freqs are resident to crank up the low end control so the extra cavity isn't needed. One suggestion for a future design upgrade would be to bevel the top wood where the arm rests, however, I have to believe this might impinge upon needed cavity space. The price of this guitar is interesting: yeah it's worth the price in terms of the whole package, as a buyer is buying innovation and leading edge design, but I have to believe Taylor's margins are delightful (but their R&D seems second to none).

    Regardless of ramblings, this is a GREAT instrument!!

    Tobacco Sunburst does not look at all like the picture used in the ad ....... it's a beautiful true tobacco burst - don't be fooled by the Vintage Sunburst picture .... I was amazed .... exactly what I was hoping for

    Comments about Taylor T5z Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Neck pickup died and volume knob came loose from the preamp with a year. Feedback at very high volumes (rock music) due to hollow body. Acoustic tone is not full-bodied, but definitely nicer than an electric guitar.
