According to its website: “the T3 continues Taylor’s quest to expand the range of tones available to the electric player. Inspired by both the T5 and the SolidBody, we’ve taken the classic semi-hollowbody sound and applied our signature Taylor design and tonal touches, blending our high-definition Style 2 pickups with a coil-splitting application to give players killer humbucker and single coil sounds in one guitar. A push-pull tone knob brings two sweeping modes of tone control. We’ve also paired a Bigsby tailpiece with a roller bridge on the T3/B model, giving players a high-performance vibrato bar without the pitch issues. Players who don’t need a vibrato bar can instead opt for a T3 with a stop tailpiece.”
Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974 by then up-and-coming luthier Bob Taylor and his colleague Kurt Listug in El Cajon, CA, where it still has its headquarters. More than 35 years later the company has become a household name (in guitar-loving households, anyway) and is known for making some of the finest acoustic guitars in the world. All Taylor guitars feature ebony fretboards and their patented bolt-on necks, and the higher end models offer a selection of beautiful woods from around the world. Taylor devotees include Hall & Oates, Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, Neil Young, Zac Brown, the Goo Goo Dolls, Jewel, and, of course, Taylor Swift!
