A true Taylor original, the groundbreaking hollowbody T5 bridges the electric and acoustic worlds like no other guitar, giving gigging players a versatile range of electric and amplified acoustic flavors, all in one guitar. The magic is in our blend of proprietary pickup designs and switching capability. An active soundboard and a magnetic acoustic body sensor capture a natural-sounding acoustic voice, while a pair of electric pickups — a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker — crank out an array of electric sounds. Five-way switching and onboard tone controls enable players to flick from warm jazz to vintage blues to heavy distortion in an instant. The T5’s dual compatibility with electric and acoustic amps (or both with an A/B box) translates into a broad sonic palette for players to explore.
Choose from four model options: Custom, Pro, Standard and Classic, each distinguished by soundboard choices of flamed koa, curly maple, spruce or mahogany, with corresponding appointment packages and color options.
