The Taylor T5 Custom Acoustic Electric Guitar features a Hawaiian koa top, making it practically irresistible.
A delicate edge-burst sets off koa’s dramatic figure and variation, accented by gold hardware and abalone Artist inlays. The T5’s performance matches its over the top good looks with a versatile range of electric and acoustic tones, plugged into both acoustic and electric amps.
Thirty years ago, Taylor couldn't have imagined building an electric guitar. Now, after a relentless pursuit of innovation, the Taylor T5 feels like a natural next step. A lot can happen in the course of three decades. Taylor listened closely as playing styles evolved and the line between acoustic and electric began to blur. They evolved, too. They honed their craft, inventing new pickups and pushing technology into totally new territory. The time for a guitar with real electric and acoustic tones has arrived.
Beginning with a fully hollow thinline body that makes your acoustic tone authentic, Theylor designed the T5 to perform equally well through both electric and acoustic amps. Thanks to its humbucking pickups and proprietary body sensor, the T5 produces a versatile range of pure analog tones from strumming acoustic to crunch electric and everything in between. No catches, no compromises. One flick of its five way switch and you're on your way.
Available in T5 Standard and T5 Custom configurations, the T5 features sapele back and sides with your choice of spruce, maple, or koa tops as well as stylized f holes, 5 way pickup, electric Nanoweb coated Elixir Strings, Taylor T-Lock neck joint, and a variety of sunburst and colored finishes. What's your tone today? Where do you want to take it tomorrow? Wherever you're going, the Taylor T5 will help you get there.
