Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this Taylor T5Z Custom Acoustic/ Electric Guitar Koa with a Shaded Edgeburst Finish! There are electric guitars and there are acoustic guitars; then there’s the Taylor T5z Custom. With the T5z Custom, Taylor gives you even more features that will make you feel right at home if you’re coming from a solidbody electric. They’ve thinned out the body even more, and spec’d the buttery ebony fingerboard with a 12″ radius and jumbo frets to make string bending even easier. And the range of available sounds? Far beyond what we’ve come to expect from traditional acoustic or electric guitars. With the T5z Custom, there’s no limit to your sonic possibilities!
The Taylor T5z Custom 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 pleasurable to play with either electric or acoustic strings.
The Taylor T5z Custom 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 Custom’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 Custom 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 AA Hawaiian koa 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 of your performances. Excellent Shape with hardware tarnish, an indent on the neck and a few minor dimples, 9.5/10! ALL Original. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs!
