T5z Classic – Koa
Along with its chameleonic tone-shifting powers and cross-genre versatility, our T5z Classic has always borne a minimal, functional aesthetic that reflects its musical utility. Here, we’re kicking up the visuals with a stunning Hawaiian koa top rich with organic variegation and natural hues—a style usually reserved for Custom or Pro T5z models. Musically, the T5z Classic is as bold and pragmatic as you’d expect from our line of hollowbody hybrids, with a comfortable neck that feels easy in the fretting hand whether you’re playing cowboy chords or flying lead licks. The five-way switching system allows you to shape your tone around three pickups—an acoustic body sensor and two humbuckers—so that you can bend between warm acoustic sounds and searing electric sizzle on a dime. Details for this model include a handsome shaded edgeburst top treatment, a satin finish and two F-holes on an unbound body, showcasing Hawaiian koa’s natural beauty. Small Diamond fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic and satin black tuners round out the visuals. This model ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
