Few woods conjure up reactions like maple. Between its crisp, bright tone and dramatic, variegated figure it’s easy to see why. The T5 Custom (T5-C1) takes full advantage of maple’s appeal, playing nicely off the sharp lines of the f-holes and elegant “Spire” inlays. A variety of vibrant color options highlight maple's striking personality.

Inspired by the research on the Expression System, the T5 body sensors are overwound to produce the sparkling highs and shimmer for the most acoustic-like switch position.
