The Taylor T5 Custom (introduced in 2005) is a hollow bodied electro-acoustic hybrid. The first T5 Customs had a spruce top as standard with optional flamed maple top (extra $500) or koa top (extra $700) - but the current model has a koa top. The T5 Custom has a three-pickup setup with an acoustic body sensor, a concealed neck humbucker, and a visible bridge humbucker. Controls are five-way pickup switching and onboard tone controls, giving players access to the full range of the T5 Custom's electric/acoustic tones. The Taylor T5 Custom also features gold hardware (chrome hardware on the earlier blue finished ones) and white binding. The T5 Custom originally had Taylor's Artist fretboard inlays but now has progressive Spires fretboard inlays.
