Taylor T5z Pro - Borrego Red
Flamed maple tops distinguish Taylor's T5z Pro thinline acoustic-electric guitar. The unique T5z features include a more compact body than the original T5, plus a 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets, which together provide a familiar feel for electric players. Like the T5, the T5z is equipped with a three-pickup configuration of an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls, giving your an incredibly versatile electric/acoustic guitar. Appointments on Taylor's T5z Pro include nickel hardware, crisp white binding, and a Spires inlay scheme. Taylor T5z Pro Thinline Acoustic-electric Guitar Features: Maple top with sapele back and sides Sapele neck with ebony fretboard (12" radius) Jumbo frets Taylor Chrome tuners T5 electronics (1 acoustic / 2 electric pickups with 5-way switching) T5z hardshell case.
This is both an Acoustic and an Electric guitar. The Taylor T5z Pro allows you to get fully acoustic sounds and fully electric sounds from the same guitar. Seamlessly. It's designed to be used with both acoustic and electric amps using a standard guitar cable or a balanced cable. Think about what an amazing advantage that is when you're performing! If you're primarily a solidbody slinger, you'll particularly appreciate the T5z's fast sapele neck. If you're in the mood for shredding, the shortened scale length and jumbo frets ensure a fingerboard (ebony) that is endlessly pleasureable to play with either electric or acoustic strings.
The Taylor T5z Pro features a whole new generation of electronics. Tones are selected via the easy access 5-way switch located on the side of the guitar. Two pickups - a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker - produce a truly impressive range of electric guitar tone, while the an acoustic body sensor system delivers breathtaking acoustic sounds. Inspired by the research on the Expression System, the T5z body sensors are overwound to produce the sparkling highs and shimmer for the most acoustic-like switch position. The T5z Pro's preamp was designed to deliver a wide range of tones in every switch position. Controls include Volume, Bass and Treble.
Inspired by the Taylor Grand Auditorium silhouette, the T5z Pro features a sleek and comfortable-to-hold carved hollowbody of sapele. Like all Taylor guitars, a custom-voiced soundboard is the heart of the T5z tone; the maple top creates a strong, colorful voice with prodigious sustain. Finally, stylized f-holes command the eye and enhance the resonance of the body chamber, allowing the top to breathe and capture the dynamics your performances.
