A new blue-hued stain, aptly named Denim, adds a striking weathered flair to this Special Edition T5z Pro. Together with the rich figure of the curly maple top, the stain conjures the look of a favourite pair of faded, heavily whiskered jeans. The more compact sibling of Taylor’s original electric/acoustic hybrid T5, the T5z incorporates a 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets for easier string bends that electric players will appreciate.
This small-body electric/acoustic guitar has a short scale length of 24 7/8" and is a delight to play!
Proprietary T5z electronics include a three-pickup configuration featuring an acoustic body sensor, concealed neck humbucker, and visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls, give players an incredibly versatile electric/acoustic guitar. Appointments include nickel hardware, crisp white binding, and Spires inlay motif. The guitar ships in a T5z hardshell case.
Like its bigger sibling, the T5, the hollowbody T5z packs a dynamic range of electric and amplified acoustic tones into one guitar. The difference is a more compact body size (closer to a solidbody) and playing features that electric players will love: a 12-inch fretboard radius (compared to 15-inch on the T5), jumbo frets that making bending strings easier, and slightly more feedback resistance with high-gain distortion. Hybrid electric/acoustic design features include a three-pickup configuration — a magnetic acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker — plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls that let you shift from shimmering acoustic to screaming electric in an instant. The guitar’s dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps is the icing on the cake, putting incredible performance versatility into a player’s hands.
Like the T5, the T5z is available in four model options, each distinguished by soundboard choices of flamed koa, curly maple, spruce or mahogany, with corresponding appointment packages and color options. Two 12-string T5z models (Custom and Classic) are also offered.
