T5Z STD HS

Online

The T5z Standard delivers an extra splash of acoustic-friendly tonal properties thanks to a Sitka spruce top. Color options include Black, Honey Sunburst and Tobacco Sunburst. More compact than the original T5, the T5z also features a 12-inch fretboard radius and jumbo frets, which both help with string bends. Like the T5, the T5z is equipped with a three-pickup configuration of an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker, plus five-way switching and onboard tone controls, giving players an incredibly versatile electric/acoustic guitar. Featured appointments include chrome hardware, nickel hardware, crisp white binding and a Small Diamond inlay scheme. The guitar ships in a T5z hardshell case.

Closest StorePrince George, British Columbia
I bought this one as a pre-retirement gift to myself. I was looking for a hybrid and after researching the issue to death, settle on the Taylor being the best choice. Ordered from the factory through L&M--took ~6 weeks for this beauty to arrive. Setup was excellent right out of the box! Plays like a dream with the jumbo frets, all you need is the lightest of touches to make the notes and chords ring. I grant you that the price is high, however this is a lifetime investment in yourself and well worth the upfront costs!
