The Taylor 150e 12-string acoustic-electric guitar delivers Taylor's signature playability and tonal clarity in a high-value package. This guitar's dreadnought body delivers robust low-end response that balances beautifully with the silky octave shimmer. The 150e features layered walnut back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, for vibrant tone with healthy projection. And when you take the stage with your 150e 12-string, Taylor's ES2 electronics amplify that great tone to perfection.
The 150e is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features a time-proven Sitka spruce for its top, giving you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle. The 150e's layered walnut back and sides offer a rigid construction that aids in adding power and projection to your sound. From the innovative neck joint to the durable, top-notch finish, your Taylor is built to play and sound absolutely great, right from the moment you pick it up.
Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor goes about it a bit differently. Their Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp, the result is a natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack.
There's nothing like a Taylor. Guitar World Sales Engineers have long recommended them for their playability and exceptional tonal clarity. But what is it that makes a Taylor acoustic so good? Aside from each Taylor being made out of premium tonewoods, it's their legendary easy-playing necks. Even if you're primarily an electric player, you'll feel totally comfortable getting around on this 12-string neck. Pick up your 150e and strum a few chords. You won't want to put it down.
