Taylor T5 Classic Mahogany
Taylor T5 Classic
Mahogany-top guitars aren’t exclusive to Taylor’s acoustic line. The character-rich hog-top T5 Classic shows off a dark, earthy look that’s underscored by a satin classic mahogany finish and an unbound body. The hollowbody hybrid’s three-pickup configuration features an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls that give players a truly full-range performance guitar. Additional appointments include Small Diamond inlays and nickel hardware. The guitar ships in a Taylor gig bag.
This Could Be the Only Guitar You Need at Your Gig
The T5 Classic from Taylor is a hybrid of an acoustic and an electric guitar, so it's like having two guitars in one great-looking body. Guitarists at Guitar World are still impressed at how many sounds you can get using the multi-pickup system. There's an air-coil rear pickup that can go from country twang to bright rock to full-blown humbucker tone. Use the T5 Dynamic neck pickup and body sensor to give your T5 Classic a shimmery, rounder, woody acoustic-like tone. When you need to switch between acoustic and electric tones, the Taylor T5 Classic is a smart choice.
Taylor T5 Classic Hybrid Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Rich tone from mahogany-topped sapele
- Exceptional tone from an innovative body style
- T5 electronics give you the best of both acoustic and electric guitar tone
Rich tone from mahogany-topped sapele
Taylor gave the T5 Classic a stunning mahogany top with a gentle sapele body to complement it. Mahogany is known for its rich, mellow voice, and it's the perfect tonewood to take advantage of the T5's classic highly versatile pickup configuration. You can cover the whole range from bright, chiming electric tone to warm, woody acoustic tone.
Exceptional tone from an innovative body style
Another way Taylor gives you exceptional tone from the T5 Classic is in the very body design itself. The stylized f-holes do more than catch the eye, they also enhance the resonance of the T5 Classic's body chamber, allowing the top to breathe and capture the dynamics of your heartfelt performance. The result is dynamic, expressive tone with incredible articulation.
T5 electronics give you the best of both acoustic and electric guitar tone
The Taylor T5 Classic is the guitar to choose when you want to get the versatility of having multiple guitars, without the extra cost and weight of lugging them around. With the T5 Classic, an electric guitar amplifier, and an acoustic amplifier, you've got everything you need for virtually any gig.
