Soon after the T5 hit the market in 2005, the music industry press nominated it for Electric Guitar of the Year. And Acoustic Guitar of the Year. Which pretty much sums it all up: the T5 is an electric/acoustic that defines the hybrid category. Today, the versatile T5 is the top-selling semi-hollow body guitar and the only one that uses all-magnetic pickups for both its electric and acoustic tones. That means real acoustic tones, real electric tones, and everything in between. The T5 also features proprietary Taylor pickups, 5-Way switch, and Taylor T-Lock neck joint.
And oh yeah, it won both awards. T5-C2 Exotic tops say it all on the T5-C2. Koa comes standard, but "standard" is hardly the way to describe this rare, radiant hardwood. Other exotics are available from time to time too, including Macassar ebony, cocobolo, rosewood, and others. Available in natural with shaded edge.
