The Taylor T5z-12 Classic blends Taylor's compact hollow body design with a tropical mahogany top and a gorgeous shimmering 12-string voice. The more compact hollow body of the T5z-12 Classic is made from sapele back and sides paired with a beautifully grained tropical mahogany top. Aside from offering a vintage, earthy aesthetic, these tonewoods provide incredible tonal balance with a full-bodied midrange. A smooth satin finish adds to the classic appeal.

Taylor Guitars are known for their ultra-playable necks, and the T5z-12 Classic is no exception. Carved from sapele, the neck sports an ergonomic, easy-to-play profile, a cozy 1-11/16" nut width, and a 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with jumbo frets and old-school-style small diamond inlays.

Just as its 6-string counterpart, the T5z-12 Classic comes fitted with Taylor's unique, versatile electronics that consists of 3 pickups (an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, a visible humbucker in the bridge position), a 5-way pickup selector switch and onboard tone controls. Plug into your favorite electric guitar amp and the T5z-12 Classic is capable of taking you anywhere from super clean, smooth sound to a nice crunch with the bridge and neck pickups. Finding the perfect plugged-in acoustic voice through your acoustic amp or PA system is no problem thanks to the onboard acoustic body sensor.

A set of Taylor Nickel tuners, a Tusq nut, and an ebony bridge with a Micarta saddle round out this attractive package. Comes with a protective Taylor T5z gig bag.

Surpasses the needs of a 12 string player.


This guitar has all of the sweet sounds an functions of a T5Z guitar the form of a 12 string guitar. There is little add to this review that I haven't say in my T5Z review, except that it is in a 12 string. I could play for hours with this guitar, that I would not or could not do with other 12 stings. Playing is effortless, however it is dependent upon which songs you are playing. Great for Folk songs and single performers, but not for hard rock or Reggae. As with most 12 stings, it fills the void with sound in songs. Bar cords are relatively easy as in most 12 string guitars. I reduce the rating because it does not fit into other T5Z Taylor guitar cases. Yep! You need to buy a Dedicated Taylor case, since the T5Z cases are of a slightly narrower dimension. Like wise, other accessories are also of a slightly different dimension, rendering a need to duplicate seemingly identical accessories. As an individual or paired performers, you will love this guitar as it makes you sing and feeling like a professional!
