Designed to be comfortable for electric players, the Taylor T5z Pro is a new addition to the Taylor T5 family. This guitar brings the looks of an electric guitar to the wildly popular hollowbody hybrid electric acoustic T5 series. There are many advantages to the electric guitar style including: a more compact than the original T5, jumbo frets for easier string bending along with a 12 inch fingerboard radius. The opportunity to let musicians blend both electric and acoustic sounds together makes this instrument an essential part of many musicians’ setups.

Just as with the original T5 guitar, the Taylor T5z Pro blends the acoustic and electric sounds like no other guitar can. Producing a natural acoustic voice with the active soundboard on its compact hollowbody design, this guitar uses three pickups: an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker. The T5z Pro has dual compatibility with both electric and acoustic amps due to its innovative crossover design, and with the convenient five-way switching guitarists may change over from acoustic to electric in an instant.
