Taylor Guitars Introduces the Compact T5z to its Award-Winning T5 Series 

January 28, 2014
Taylor Guitars is expanding its groundbreaking electric/acoustic 
hollowbody T5 Series with a sleek new sibling, the compact T5z. Like the original T5, the T5z boasts
 incredible tonal versatility, enabling players to shift from pristine acoustic to growling electric with the flip of a five-way switch. The difference is a scaled-down body size and a fretting experience that will feel familiar to electric players. 
 
Among the T5z's distinctive design features are a 12-inch fretboard radius (compared to the T5's 15-inch radius) and jumbo frets, which make bending strings easier. Otherwise the T5z retains all the great performance features of the original T5: three-pickup configuration, 5-way switching, and tone controls that dial in a full-range of tonal flavors, from heavy riffs to delicate fingerpicking, and dual compatibility with acoustic and electric amps.
 
For 2014, both the T5z and T5 will be released in a series of four models, each distinguished by the top wood: the Custom (koa top), the Pro (curly maple top), the Standard (Sitka spruce top), and the Classic (mahogany top). The Pro is available in four colors: Borrego Red, Gaslamp Black, Pacific Blue, and Tobacco Sunburst; the Standard is offered in Black, Honey Sunburst, and Tobacco Sunburst.
