Manufacturer's ID: T5z Classic
What we say:
Taylor’s innovations with acoustic guitars are well known and celebrated, from their early adoption of computer-controlled precision building to their lateral thought regarding bracing and pickup technology amongst other things. This same attitude for invention and redesign is carried across to their ’T’ range of semi-hollowbody electrics.
The T5z looks relatively straightforward but in fact hosts a degree of unique features that set it in a unique place within the pantheon of high-quality guitars. This is a true hybrid guitar: as well as the lipstick tube humbucker pickup in the bridge position, there is an acoustic circuit (an active soundboard with an magnetic acoustic body sensor) and, interestingly, another humbucker concealed under the top at the neck position! A five way selector and three knobs can get you from convincing acoustic sounds though to warm jazzy electric sounds to full on distorted outburst, all from selecting options directly on the guitar. The T5z also has the ability (via an A/B box) so go into both an acoustic combo/PA and an electric rig so you do not need to compromise either type of sound.
What makes the T5z different to the T5 range is the slightly smaller body size: this not only makes the instrument more compact and portable but also helps eliminate feedback with the guitar is on full-on screaming distortion hum bucking mode. The fretboard is also a little less flat at 12” (the regular T5 has a super-flat 15” radius) which you may prefer when performing big string bends.
This classic model has a lovely, earthy, grainy mahogany top with no binding to allow it a more rustic vibe. The Ebony fretboard has Small Diamond inlays.
