Taylor T5-C2 Custom Koa Top
Electric Acoustic Edgeburst

Item: TOT5C2

The T5-C2 is an electric/acoustic that defines the hybrid category. Today, the versatile T5 is the top-selling semi-hollow body guitar, and the only one that uses all-magnetic pickups for both its electric and acoustic tones. That means real acoustic tones, real electric tones, and everything in between. The T5 features a fully hollow body and an active soundboard with a compound radius. The T5 also features proprietary Taylor pickups, 5-Way switch, and Taylor T-Lock™ neck joint. Gold sets the tone for the T5-C2 in the form of the tuners and pickup hardware. A koa top meets up with the sapele body, while microdot inlays run the fretboard. Taylor wrote the book on straight, easy-playing necks. Our innovative T-Lock™ neck joint brings Taylor's trademark consistency and comfort into the T5 player's hands.

The T5 electronics were inspired by the revolutionary Taylor Expression System®, and then were custom designed to bring out the best electric and acoustic tones from the guitar. Thanks to its humbucking pickups and proprietary body sensor, the T5 produces a versatile range of pure analog tones from strumming acoustic to crunchy electric, and everything in between. From acoustic tones to '50s hollowbody with a slight scoop to a full and bright electric sound that's great for thick lead tones, you¹ll get it all with a flick of the T5 5-way switch.

Soon after the T5 hit the market in 2005, the music industry press nominated it for Electric Guitar of the Year, and Acoustic Guitar of the Year, and, oh yeah, it won both awards.
