Sassafras is known among guitar-makers as a chameleonic tonewood, one that tends to emphasize the player’s technique regardless of style or genre. That flexible character makes it a perfect fit with the malleable sound of the Taylor T5z Classic, a hybrid hollowbody electric guitar that offers some of the warmth and lustre players value in acoustic guitars. The key is the T5z’s unique pickup configuration, with two humbuckers and an acoustic body sensor controlled by five-way switching for a range of distinctive tones. The blackheart sassafras top, named for the dark streaks that lace this tonewood, adds a beautifully earthy visual flavor that complements minimalist appointments such as Small Diamond fretboard inlays, classic F-holes, satin black tuning machines and a subtle chocolate-hued satin finish set off by an edgeburst top treatment. This model ships with a deluxe hardshell case.
