Expand Your Sonic Possibilities with the T5 Pro

There are electric guitars, there are acoustic guitars; then there's the Taylor T5 Pro. Sweetwater's guitar pickers are big fans of Taylor's T5 acoustic-electric. With the T5 Pro, Taylor gives you features that will make you feel right at home if you're coming from a solidbody electric. They've topped the thin, comfortable body with a gorgeous, toneful curly maple top, and sped'd the buttery ebony fingerboard with a 15" radius and standard frets to make string bending even easier. And the range of available sounds? Far beyond what we've come to expect from traditional acoustic or electric guitars. With the T5 Pro, there's no limit to your sonic possibilities!

Taylor T5 Pro Thinline Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Acoustic or electric: you decide
  • Next-generation electronics
  • Sleek, comfortable, resonant body
Acoustic or electric: you decide

Actually, it's both. The Taylor T5 Pro allows you to get fully acoustic sounds and fully electric sounds from the same guitar. Seamlessly. It's designed to be used with both acoustic and electric amps using a standard guitar cable or a balanced cable. Think about what an amazing advantage that is when you're performing! If you're primarily a solidbody slinger, you'll particularly appreciate the T5's fast sapele neck. If you're in the mood for shredding, the shortened scale length and jumbo frets ensure a fingerboard (ebony) that is endlessly pleasureable to play with either electric or acoustic strings.

Next-generation electronics

The Taylor T5 Pro features a whole new generation of electronics. Tones are selected via the easy access 5-way switch located on the side of the guitar . Two pickups - a concealed neck humbucker and a visible bridge humbucker - produce a truly impressive range of electric guitar tone, while the an acoustic body sensor system delivers breathtaking acoustic sounds. Inspired by the research on the Expression System, the T5 body sensors are overwound to produce the sparkling highs and shimmer for the most acoustic-like switch position. The T5 Pro's preamp was designed to deliver a wide range of tones in every switch position. Controls include Volume, Bass and Treble.

Sleek, comfortable, resonant body

Inspired by the Taylor Grand Auditorium silhouette, the T5 Pro features a sleek and comfortable-to-hold carved hollowbody of sapele. Like all Taylor guitars, a custom-voiced soundboard is the heart of the T5 tone; the Hawaiian curly maple top creates a strong, colorful voice with prodigious sustain. Finally, stylized f-holes command the eye and enhance the resonance of the body chamber, allowing the top to breathe and capture the dynamics your performances.
