From Our Research Team:
A T5 with a Premium Maple Top!There are electric guitars, and there are acoustic guitars, and then there's the Taylor T5 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 Thinline 5-Way Standard 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 with a premium maple top, 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 optional Premium Tops of stunning flame 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.

It's a Taylor...What's not to like!
by Dan Morizzo from USAIf you're thinking about buying this guitar you most likly own or played a Taylor acoustic. Well this is everything you would expect in finish detail and Taylor feel. The sounds cover a broad spectrum... read more [+]. The acoustic position sounds great thru my fishman artist. The neck only with the bass boosted is great for warm jazz. The center gives you a nice country twang...still working the last two positions into my music. I guess if you could only have one guitar this would have to be it! close [-]
