[NAMM] Taylor T3 Semi-Hollow Guitar
Taylor Guitars is expanding its electric line with the company's first purely electric semi-hollowbody guitar, the T3.
The T3 features a crafted body of sapele, topped with quilted maple. A svelte neck of tropical American mahogany sports heftier fret wire, with while brilliant chrome hardware.
The T3B includes a Bigsby Vibrato (model B70), a roller bridge and a stop tailpiece.
The new model includes Taylor's Style 2 humbuckers which are positioned to capture the T3's fidelity and range of tones. A three-way switch covers three standard configurations of pickup switching and as an added twist, coil splitting is available for both humbuckers by pulling up on the volume knob.
The control knobs, located in the traditional electric position below the bridge on the lower bout, function as push-pull pots. Pulling up on the volume knob activates a coil splitter, which turns the humbuckers into single coils. The tone knob is also a pull switch, which when pulled engages a second capacitor.
The T3 is available in a high gloss finish or in a variety of sunburst colors. Strung with Elixir light gauge electric strings with NANOWEB® coating, the T3 comes in a hard shell Taylor case.
The T3 and T3B will be available domestically in mid-February and internationally in early spring 2009. To experience the T3 at NAMM, please visit Taylor Guitars on the second floor of the Anaheim Convention Center, booth 213.
