Combine acoustic warmth and electric versatility in a handcrafted hollowbody Taylor guitar.

The Taylor Custom T5z Figured Walnut-Urban Ash acoustic-electric guitar gives you an instrument with stunning aesthetics and innovative electronics for shaping your tone. Handcrafted with premium tonewoods, this T5z hybrid hollowbody was made for professional players seeking a versatile guitar that inspires.

Premium Tonewoods Produce a Warm, Nuanced Sound

The figured walnut top of the T5z pairs beautifully with the lightweight urban ash back and sides, creating a warm and balanced tone with complex overtones. These tonewoods were carefully selected by Taylor's master builders to give you an acoustic voice with shimmering highs, tight lows and rich sustain. Plugged in, the T5z's proprietary three-pickup system powered by Taylor's T5z electronics provides a diverse array of amplified tones from crisp and natural to full and throaty.

A Neck Designed for Fluid Playability

The T5z's neck features Taylor's signature T5z carve, a rounded profile that feels familiar and fast. With its 12" radius ebony fingerboard and medium gauge frets, soloing and string bending are effortless. The width at the nut was carefully measured to balance comfort and precision. Whether you prefer fingerpicking or an aggressive attack, the T5z neck gives you a seamless playing experience.

Versatile Electronics Dial in Your Sound

Shape your tone with the T5z's proprietary three-pickup system and five-way switching. Blend piezo and electric pickups to go from crisp acoustic to full-bodied electric and everywhere in between. The piezo pickups capture the hollowbody's resonance for an authentic acoustic vibe. Pair them with the electric pickups for more cut and clarity. The switching options and tone controls offer a spectrum of sounds to suit any musical mood or genre.

Premium Appointments for an Upscale Look

With gold Gotoh 510 tuners, gold strap pins and a gloss chocolate finish, the T5z exudes craftsmanship. The fingerboard inlays made of boxwood and Hawaiian koa wood complement the figured walnut top. A custom boxwood peghead logo and black purfling around the F-holes and top edge provide an elegant look. An integrated armrest and chamfered body edges demonstrate Taylor's attention to comfort and playability. Overall, the T5z is a stunning guitar that makes a visual statement.
