Taylor T5-C1 Thinline Hollowbody Electric Hybrid Guitar with case

The Taylor T5-C1 is the perfect solution for a stage guitar that can handle the duties of both an acoustic/electric and a traditional electric guitar for convenience and consistency. It plays like an electric and when plugged in can sound like either an electric or an acoustic/electric guitar. The Taylor body sensor system covers the acoustic part, the magnetic pickup does the electric part. Best of both worlds!

This guitar is in great shape. Plays great, sounds sweet. Cosmetically, looks practically new. Original Taylor hard case is included as well as a Taylor leather strap and straplocks.

The T5-S is an electric/acoustic that defines the hybrid category. Today, the versatile T5-C1 is a 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 Taylor T5 features a fully hollow body and an active soundboard with a compound radius. The T5 also features proprietary Taylor pickups, a 5-Way switch, and a Taylor T-Lock neck joint. Gold hardware sets the tone for the T5-S in the form of the tuners and pickup hardware. A figured maple top meets up with the sapele body, while artist inlays run the fretboard. Taylor wrote the book on straight, easy-playing necks. Taylor’s innovative T-Lock neck joint brings Taylor’s trademark consistency and comfort into the T5 player’s hands.
