A Whole New Breed of Sonic PossibilitiesThere are electric guitars, and there are acoustic guitars, and then there's the Taylor T5 Custom Thinline 5-way guitar. It's a little bit of both, and everything they're not all at the same time. It may very well be a new category!
Taylor T5 Custom Thinline 5-way Guitar at a Glance:
Is it an Acoustic or and Electric?
Well, it's actually both. It allows you to get fully acoustic sounds and fully electric sounds from the same guitar. It's designed to be used with both acoustic and electric amps using a standard guitar cable or a balanced cable.
The Taylor T5 features a whole new generation of electronics!Tones are selected via the easy access 5-way switch located on the side of the Taylor T5.
What a Body!
Inspired by the Taylor Grand Auditorium silhouette, the T5 features a sleek and comfortable-to-hold carved hollowbody of sapele, and a svelte neck of Tropical American mahogany. A shortened scale length ensures a fingerboard that is endlessly pleasureable to play with either electric or acoustic strings. Like all Taylor guitars, a custom voiced soundboard is the heart of the T5 tone; on both T5 Standard and T5 Custom models, a spruce top creates a strong, colorful voice with outrageous sustain. Finally, sexy and stylized f-holes command the eye and enhance the resonance of the T5 body chamber, allowing the top to breathe and capture the dynamics of a player's performance.
Standard or Custom Choices
Both Taylor T5 Standard and Taylor T5 Custom Models are available with luscious Cherry, Honey or Tobacco bursts and optional Premium Tops of Stunning flamey maple or figured Hawaiian koa. The Taylor T5 Standard comes with chrome Taylor tuners and subtle "micro dot" fingerboard inlays, while the Taylor T5 Custom has gold Taylor tuners and Taylor's exquisite and well-loved Artist inlays.

by Rocky Guarriello from Rutherfordton, NCWell made, sounds great, and plays great. Great neck, and the acoustic when used with the stereo plug running through the PA sounds very real, and warm. Good EQ and just a great all around guitar.

The Taylor T5... a really amazing instrument !
by Jim G, from Charlottesville, VirginiaLong before purchasing the T5, I spent most of my time on a Martin D28. Then I installed a piezo pickup on the Martin and ran it through a Roland AC-60 acoustic amp. My interest then lead me to purcha... read more [+]se a Taylor 8 str. Baritone which I also ran through the Roland. I was having great fun with this setup, but the whole electric side of guitar life was passing me by. And so began my love affair with the T5. This is one beautiful guitar. The craftsmanship and innovation that goes into this instrument is stunning. Really. Plays like a dream. Plugged into an ABY switch, then through a Roland XL 80 and the AC-60, the creative options are wide open. Toss in a looping station and you're a one man band. I am having WAY too much fun !!! close [-]

This series of guitars is really puts the "Electric" in the electric/acoustic guitar arena. Great fit and finish makes for great eye appeal on top of a very comfortable neck and well balanced body. The controls are easy to get to and provide usable tonal options. Here's a hybrid that really works for a variety of players.
