First strum sold me
I had not heard anything positive about this guitar. Most of the players that I knew said the same thing.
But, as I walked into the acoustic room at a local shop, I heard a guy getting incredible sounds out of a guitar he was playing. I was really surprised to find him playing a T5z. It really sounded great. The guy knew what he was doing and had nothing but positive thoughts on the guitar.
So, I sat down with one and proceeded to blow myself away. And that was just on the most acoustic switch setting. I was getting full rythem and lead tones that I had never gotten from a pure acoustic/electric guitar. Plus the set-up was perfect even with the Elixer 11's that came installed from the factory.
I ended up taking home the Pro model and I have been enjoying it ever since. I do have a number of electrics that give me the sounds that I want from solid bodies, but for my acoustic work, this is the guitar I grab.
