This type of bridge is much easier to restring than the tie-block type found on traditional Ukes, and on Classical and Flamenco nylon string guitars.

❌SOLD❌ Taylor T5Z Sapele Classic Thinline Acoustic Electric, 2016

The Taylor T5z Sapele Classic is an extremely versatile, lightweight and thin bodied acoustic / electric guitar designed like the T5 to replace several guitars on a bandstand. The model came into being when budgets for large tours were slashed and guitarists had to condense what they carried. The Taylor T5z Sapele Classic is an inch or so narrower than the T5, but offers a similar feature set. The semi hollow body is made with Sapele, and the neck is Mahogany with an Ebony fingerboard and bridge.
