Semi-hollowbody electrics have always offered players tonal versatility, boasting a flavorful musical resume that spans jazz, rockabilly, classic rock, vintage country, power pop and more. We’ve built on that diverse heritage with innovative Taylor designs to create the T3. At the heart of it all is our proprietary pickup design. Our standard setup features our high-definition humbuckers, with optional mini humbuckers for a mix of power and clarity, or vintage alnicos that respond with extra warmth. A three-way switch covers full neck, neck/bridge and full bridge configurations, while a coil-splitting application (pulling up the volume knob) transforms the humbuckers into single coil pickups. Roll the tone knob to boost the mids and pull it up to activate another level of control that dials in mellow warmth without giving up clarity.
We’ve also refined the playing experience with designs that include our rock-solid T-Lock® neck joint, a roller bridge that preserves tuning stability, and tailpiece options that include a stoptail (T3) or Bigsby vibrato tailpiece (T3/B). In tandem with the roller bridge, the Bigsby delivers smooth pitch control that makes vibrato bends fun to explore. Together with a figured maple top, several color/burst options, and nickel hardware, the T3 blends neo-vintage style with top-shelf performance.
