Stunning acoustic-electric tones and the bright punch of a maple top.
This is the T5 Standard Guitar upgraded by Taylor with a beautiful figured maple top, chrome hardware, and microdot fretboard inlays.
A resonant, fully hollow thinline body is the backbone of the Taylor T5. Its comfort and playability is unquestionable, with the performance freedom of a solidbody and the feel and sound of a beloved Taylor acoustic. Whether played through an electric or acoustic amp, the T5 delivers a fantastic range of pure tones from smooth, strumming acoustic to crunchy electric chords.
Electronics include a unique 5-way pickup system composed of a magnetic acoustic humbucker, magnetic electric humbucker, and a single Dynamic Body Sensor soundboard pickup, as well as a preamp system for mixing up the exact tone you need. Full binding, bone nut and saddle, stylized f-holes, a mahogany neck, sapele body, and an ebony fretboard and headstock overlay are standard on the Taylor T5 guitar.

Comments about Taylor T5 Standard Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Maple Top:
Having played for over 30 years and owned more than 20 guitars during that time, I have to say the Taylor T5 comes as close to the best as I have ever owned. The guitar is flawless in its quality and workmanship and it just "feels right" to me. The neck is quick and smooth as a baby's bottom while having just the right shape for comfort. The T5 is perhaps at its best as an acoustic electric with enough of an "electric vibe" to make all but the most hard core metal heads happy. While it is certainly and expensive guitar this is a case of you get what you pay for.
