TAYLOR T3

Taylor’s foray into semi-hollowbody electric guitars is an impressive one. The T3 semi-hollowbody thinline is an electric guitar with the same attention to detail and playability that you’d expect of a Taylor acoustic guitar. The T3 has a 21-fret ebony fingerboard, and a quilted maple top, available in a variety of finishes, and comes with all chrome hardware. The T3 boasts two Taylor Style 2 HD Humbucker pickups that you can select in various combinations via a three-position switch. The tone and volume knobs incorporate a push/pull option for additional control. Pulling the volume knob essentially changes the pickups from humbuckers to single coil pickups by the use of a coil splitter. Pulling up on the tone knob adds warmth to the already stellar tone of the guitar, while leaving it down allows you to add highs or take them away. The T3 is capable of producing tones for rock, jazz, or anything in between. The playability of the guitar is outstanding, and the neck is silky and comfortable, with much more in common with an electric neck than an acoustic. The T3 ships with a deluxe hardshell case. LIST PRICE: $3198.00 —STEVE MARTIN
