Normally providing a rich blend of warmth and organic tone, the T5z Classic is recognized for its vintage, earthy character. Its compact body, 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets all team up to offer fast, fluid playability, while its response and tonal clarity provide a truly memorable playing experience.
Featuring a three-pickup configuration of an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, the Taylor t5z classic with Sapele top really does offer you a wealth of tonal variety and depth, complimented with its functional five-way switching and on-board tone controls.
Boasting its warm sapele body, the Taylor t5z classic offers smouldering warmth. It takes its inspiration from the qualities found in the more common material; mahogany providing you, the player, with naturally bright mid-tones and crystal-clear highs that are recognised within the T5’s fully-hollow design. Shipped in a T5z gig bag, this is one guitar that you won't want to put down!
What Taylor say about the Taylor t5z classic with Sapele Top:
An African relative of mahogany, Sapele lends mahogany-inspired sonic properties to the T5 Classic (T5-X). The result is a full acoustic midrange with bright trebles that are accentuated by the T5’s fully-hollow design. Then switch to the T5’s electric side and discover just how versatile a guitar can be.
