Taylor Guitars T3 & T3B Semi-Hollow Electrics Review
Taylor Guitars, taylorguitars.com
T3, $2,998.00; T3B, $3,198.00
Terms like "elegant" and “sexy” make us think of Megan Fox. Add in “semihollow” and our thoughts immediately turn to Taylor’s new T3 model, yet another gorgeous creature with which we’d like more than a few hours of playtime.
The T3 is Taylor’s first electric semi-hollowbody guitar. Both it and its Bigsby-enhanced T3B sibling feature a sapele body topped with quilted maple, a tropical American mahogany neck and heftier fret wire for fast and comfortable playing. The T3B incorporates a roller bridge for high performance. Both models include Taylor’s Style 2 humbuckers. A three-way switch provides three standard configurations of pickup switching, and the coils on both humbuckers can be split by pulling the volume knob. Pulling the tone knob engages a second capacitor for either punched-up mid or mellow jazz tones. The T3 is available in a variety of sunburst colors and with a high-gloss finish.
