Sam Ash Pro Ira Hoch told me about the Taylor T5Z Custom Acoustic-Electric Guitar and after telling me all about it, I figured it was time for me to buy my first Taylor guitar! Besides the stunning beauty of the figured Koa top, Sapele back and sides, and the Ebony fretboard, I was very impressed with how sonically versatile this guitar is! The neck feels more like an electric guitar and the thinline style body is very comfortable to play. While at home, I played it outside and when the sun revealed all the grains of the very beautiful figured Koa top I was blown away! It has to be one of the most gorgeous looking guitars ever made! The Taylor T5Z Custom Acoustic-Electrig Guitar with the Koa top and Sapele back and sides sounds, plays, and looks like nothing else out there. The quality of craftsmanship is superb, and while the price isn't cheap, you are getting a custom shop quality guitar that is easily worth the price! I highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a top quality acoustic-electric guitar with the thinline style body, impressive electronics, fast neck, tonal variety, and one of the prettiest Koa finishes (especially in the sunlight) you'll ever see! Thanks so much Ira, I really love this very special guitar!
