Taylor T5z Classic

Electric guitar with acoustic pickup

An amazingly versatile and compact electric guitar, covering every guitar style from acoustic fingerpicking to heavy metal - and everything in between

T5Z Classic de chez TAYLOR
Gilbert506, 15.03.2017
après mure reflexion, je me suis enfin décidé à m'offrir
cette guitare, je joue dans un e formation folk depuis 11 ans
sur une vieille mais excellente Takamine classique, et j'avais un peu peur du changement !!!
ok c'est tout de même un sacré changement, elle est légère, colle parfaitement au corps, le manche est tout simplement divin, j'avais des cordes nylon, mes doigts ont dûs s'habituer au métal, mais sinon quelle facilité de jeu, quelle souplesse on glisse sur ce manche, fin et rapide, quant aux micros,
c'est juste superbe, j'ai un rolland ac 60, il n'y a pas besoin de grand chose d'autre...
toujours pas essayé de pédales d'effet, d'ailleurs si quelqu'un a des tuyaux sur des pédales bien adaptées je suis preneur,
je suis vraiment très satisfais de cet achat, et j'aimerai aussi remercier la personne avec qui j'ai communiqué chez thomann, pour son professionnalisme et sa gentillesse, j'ai hésité avec un modèle au dessus, mais honnètement, celle ci vaut vraiment le detour !!

Super Qualität
Eddie x, 19.06.2018
Sehr leicht zu handhabende Luxus-Gitarre, Qualität und solide Verarbeitung.
Sie lässt keine wünsche offen.
Selbst unplugt klingt Sie schon sehr interessant.
Elektrisch vielseitig.
Optisch ein Leckerbissen.
Die Mechanik lässt sich sehr leicht bedienen, natürlich Stimmfest.
Eine sehr gute Verarbeitung rundet diese Gitarre ab.

Für mich schon immer ein Traum.

Ich nutze die Gitarre nur zu hause, aber auf der Bühne wäre sie ein absoluter Blickfang.

Was ich persönlich vermisse ist der Koffer im Lieferumfang.

Eine gute Tasche mit etwas stauraum für Utensilien ist dabei.

Thomann hat schnell und ordentlich verpackt geliefert.
Für mich die erste Wahl was Instrumente und Zubehör angeht.

Det ultimata instrumenet!!
AndUna, 08.05.2017
En oerhört mångsidig gitarr som täcker alla mina behov av gitarrer, jag spelar allt från Djangostyle, Blues&Rock och Jazz. Den är mycket välbyggd, balanserad och oerhört lätt. Finishen är verkligen toppklass. Ytan på kroppen är som den lenaste persika (utan dess kladdiga innandöme) halsen smidig med stora jumboband som gör den väldigt lättspelad. Men det bästa i mitt tycke är att den är så liten och behändig med låg vikt. Inga problem med nacken eller annat för att stå en kväll med denna gitarr. Jag har mer än 45 års erfarenhet av gitarrspel i dess olika former och efter att ha spelat på denna Taylor T5z i 8 månader tycker jag att den är för mig den ultimata gitarren.
I första läget är den akustiska sensorn inkopplad tillsammans med humbuckern (dold under halsen), där det låter precis som en Taylor ska göra, allt från en basgitarr till det mest krispiga akustiska ton du vill ha. Detta tack vare de mycket effektiva tonkontrollerna. De har ett verkligt rejält omfång.
Humbuckerläget ger en mjuk härlig jazzton som du finjusterar snabbt och exakt med tonkontrollerna. Deras placering är smart då man verkligen ser vad man ställt in de på. Återigen vill jag betona de supereffektiva tonkontrollerna.
Mittenläget ger ett Fenderlikt sound med stor botten och härligt krisp på toppen.
De två återstående lägena är det "singlecoil" stuk på, varav det ena är fasvänt men båda ger bra tryck i rocksolona.
Jag använder en Bose 10 när jag spelar Djangostyle, en Vox AC 50 cp2 till Blues och rock samt en Fender Blues de luxe reissue till jazz.
Sammanfattningsvis tycker jag att T5Z är ett av de mest lyckade hybriderna som finns på marknaden just nu (inom rimlig prisnivå) för min del ersätter den min Djangogitarr, Ibanez George Benson samt VOX SDC-77.
