The Taylor T5 Classic guitar is a killer blend of acoustic and electric functionality (2 humbuckers, 1 acoustic body sensor) in a streamlined guitar with the feel of a thinline hollowbody. If you've ever found yourself bemoaning the the need to take your entire guitar arsenal with you to a gig, this may be the one for you. It's all here from beautiful rich acoustic tones to full on rock. With a clear sounding Tropical Mahogany top paired with warm and resonant Sapele back and sides, it effortlessly switches between being a natural, earthy folk machine and a hollowbodied rocker. Featuring an Ebony fingerboard with a 15" radius and 21 Jumbo frets, it's incredibly easy to play.
With the T5 controls, you have an instrument that's incomparably versatile. Unlike most acoustic-electrics, this guitar is totally stacked - you've got a visible bridge humbucker, a concealed neck humbucker, and an acoustic body sensor. Five way toggle switch, and tone and volume controls let you make the most of this amazing tonal palette. An awesome guitar for the studio or stage (particularly if you play a variety of music), this Taylor T5 Classic electric is the perfect hybrid of acoustic and electric tonality with a real thinline feel. Includes a Taylor electric guitar gig bag and full set up from our luthiers.
