The Taylor T5z Custom is an incredibly versatile hollow body electric guitar that blends truly striking looks with exceptional playability and amazing tone. The body of the T5z Custom is more compact in comparison to the original T5 to enhance player comfort without sacrificing that rich hollow body resonance. Crafted from a tasteful pairing of tonewoods, the T5z Custom boasts a figured Hawaiian koa top and sapele back sides to produce a sound that is as beautiful as the instrument itself. The top sports Taylor's distinctive f-holes while a smooth Venetian cutaway offers unrestricted access to the higher frets for lead playing and soloing. Electric guitar players will appreciate the fast sapele neck and the superbly playable 12"-radius ebony fingerboard with jumbo frets.

Giving you the best of both acoustic and electric guitar worlds, the T5z Custom comes fitted with a unique 3-pickup configuration that makes this one of the most sonically flexible guitars on the market. The configuration consists of a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker that'll sound great whether you're playing smooth jazz chords through a clean amp or laying down thick rock riffs through an overdriven tube amp. Switch to the onboard acoustic body sensor to deliver a gorgeous acoustic sound that'll sing through any acoustic amplifier. A 5-way switch and onboard tone controls allow for precise tonal shaping on the fly. Whether you're recording in the studio or performing in a live setting, these versatile electronics will give you a wide array of electric and acoustic guitar sounds with one single instrument.

The Taylor T5z Custom comes loaded with premium features including Standard T5z bracing, Taylor gold tuners, a full gloss finish with shaded edgeburst on the top, Spires fingerboard inlays, white binding, an ebony bridge, and a bone & nut saddle. Includes hardshell case.

Taylor T5Z is an Amazing Sounding,Playing,Looking Guitar!


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!
