Together with the rich figure of the curly maple top, the stain conjures the look of a favorite 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. 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.
