Back in June of 2013, Ear Craft Music traveled to El Cajon, California to learn more about Taylor Guitars, their production, and some new products that they have been working on. One of the more exciting instruments they had in development was a new take on the Taylor T5, this time in a smaller and light weight package. Enter the Taylor T5z. This guitar has a wonderful set of pickups and hardware that allow it to produce warm, jazzy hollowbody sounds, spanky country twang, and that Taylor acoustic-electric sound in one convenient package. It makes for a great rock guitar, too! Check out the preview video by Taylor below. This guitar puts all the power and tone of the T5 into a size that any type of guitar player can love.
T5z Design Features
- Compact hollowbody design
- 12-inch fretboard radius
