Taylor T5Z-12 Classic 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar

For players seeking the unique feel and sound of a 12-string electric guitar, the T5z-12 Classic offers an array of sonic colors that make this model a musical shapeshifter. The magic lies in the electronics setup, which includes two high-definition humbuckers and an acoustic body sensor, all controlled by five-way switching. The result is a wide swath of tonal flavors, letting you move from warm acoustic sounds to bright electric tones on the fly. A comfortable neck with jumbo frets and a 12" radius will feel familiar to electric players and accommodating to those used to the acoustic feel. Boasting a mahogany top with a rich natural grain, the T5z-12 Classic also sports Small Diamond inlays and unbound F-holes. It ships with a hardshell electric guitar case.
