Taylor's Hybrid Acoustic-Electric Guitar Changes the Game!
The Taylor T5z Standard is an innovative acoustic-electric guitar with an entirely unique sound and feel. It challenges everything you thought you knew about electric guitar design, and plays with phenomenal response and nuance. The year the Taylor T5 was introduced, it won simultaneous prizes for Best New Acoustic and Best New Electric Guitar! And the T5z model raises the bar even higher, with a slimmer build that's more comfortable for electric guitarists. If you haven't played one yet, you really owe it to yourself to discover Taylor's masterpiece of forward-thinking design.

Nothing But the Best Tonewoods
The T5z uses select sapele in the neck, heel, back and sides, which is matched tonally to a Sitka spruce top. The unique internal bracing pattern follows the patented design found on the original T5 models. Even if you strum a chord when the T5z isn't plugged in, you'll immediately hear its rich, crisp voice. The 12-inch radius ebony fretboard is carved to ensure perfect intonation at every point on the neck, and is set with super-comfortable jumbo frets. When you play the T5z, string bends feel effortless -- yet sustain gloriously.

Revolutionary Acoustic-Electric Pickup/Sensor System
In addition to its one-of-a-kind body design, the sound of the Taylor T5z is derived from the presence of the T5 electronic system and its 5-way position switch. With two custom-designed humbuckers and a separate acoustic body sensor, the T5z brings the best of two worlds together and yields astonishing tonal range.

- Position 1 combines the output of the Neck Humbucker and the Body Sensor. This is undoubtedly the coolest feature on the T5z, and opens up a vast tonal palette. By fine-tuning the controls for the pickups and the sensor respectively, you'll be able to explore a wide range of sounds and colors.
- Position 2 employs the Neck Humbucker to get a warm, round tone. If you roll back on the Treble here, you'll get sounds perfectly suited for jazz and swing styles. Conversely, if you pull back on the Bass, you'll get more of a solid body electric sound suitable for rock and metal.
- Position 3 employs the Bridge Humbucker, and is possibly the most versatile single setting. This one pickup can serve up sounds ranging from bright twangy leads to and searing overdriven leads or chords.
- Position 4 puts the Neck & Bridge Humbuckers in parallel and creates a clean sound reminiscent of a vintage hollow or semi-hollow body. With just a little chorus and/or verb, this setting instantly transports you into a realm of vintage shine and sparkle.
- Position 5 puts the Neck & Bridge in series and creates a dark, full tone that is as compelling as it is hard to describe. It sounds like an even larger hollowbody in this position, and is well-suited for deliving thick rhythm playing as well as distorted, singing leads.
