There are electric guitars, and there are acoustic guitars, and then there's the Taylor T5 Standard acoustic-electric 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! A Sitka spruce provides a solid acoustic tone for this hybrid guitar. Yet with a flick of the 5-way switch, your tone goes from acoustic to electric, thanks to a combination of proprietary humbucking pickups and a Dynamic Body Sensor. You'll get every guitar sound you ever need with the Taylor T5 Standard.

This guitar is as acoustic and an electric
The Taylor T5 Standard 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. No more lugging extra gear or switching guitars for songs, this premium axe does it all.

5-way switching for amazingly unique sounds
The Taylor T5 Standard 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 Standard's preamp was designed to deliver a wide range of tones in every switch position. Controls include Volume, Bass and Treble.

Sleek, comfortable, and gorgeous
Inspired by the Taylor Grand Auditorium silhouette, the T5 Standard features a sleek and comfortable-to-hold carved hollowbody of sapele with a premium Sitka spruce top, and a svelte mahogany neck. A shortened scale length ensures a fingerboard that is endlessly pleasurable to play with either electric or acoustic strings. Like all Taylor guitars, a custom-voiced soundboard is the heart of the T5 tone. 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.
