Taylor T5z Custom Koa Hollowbody Electric Guitar - Shaded Edge Burst

With new comfort-focused enhancements and visual upgrades, the T5z Custom delivers a new level of musical appeal. A lightweight Urban Ash body and a beautifully figured Hawaiian koa top, along with chamfered edges and an integral armrest on the upper body edge and a fast-playing neck with jumbo frets, offer exceptional playing comfort to help you discover new musical territory every time you pick up the guitar. This model's three-pickup design, consisting of a concealed neck humbucker, a visible humbucker in the middle position and an acoustic body sensor, yields a dynamic array of sounds ranging from lush acoustic tones to searing electric output, controlled by five-way switching and conveniently placed active circuitry for remarkable on-the-fly tone-shaping abilities. All told, the T5z Custom delivers for player seeking an unparalleled musical experience.
