Taylor T5z Classic DLX Tone
Like the T5, the T5z is equipped with a seemingly hidden three-pickup configuration that includes an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker. Add the dynamics of a five-way switch and tone controls, and you really begin to notice just how versatile of a guitar this thing is. Clean acoustic sounds shimmer with the brilliance you would expect from Taylor, and is very well balanced. Then, flick a switch and you've got screaming electric lead tones at your disposal!
Taylor T5z Classic DLX Feel
Distinctive T5z utilizes a more compact body than the original T5, and a 12-inch fretboard radius, making for a much more comfortable experience. Play free of inhibition, as the jumbo frets and flatter radius make playing fast and bending strings very easy tasks.
Why We Like It
The Taylor T5z Classic Deluxe edition not only brings you the great features of the standard T5z, but adds an enhanced aesthetic appeal with its mahogany-top, all-gloss body, and shaded edgeburst. This feature alone made us want to pick up and play, and you can bet we didn't put it down after.The T5z DLX is full of character and personality, and is overall one of the most fun guitars we've played in some time!
