A Quality 12-string At a Low Price

Taylor has combined layered woods with a Dreadnought body and thrown 12 strings on it to provide a quality 12-string guitar that is available at a low price. If you love a classic dreadnought body for that good old Taylor playability, but want to get into 12 string playing, the 150e is the guitar for you.

Main Features

  • Dreadnought Body
  • Layered Sapele/Sitka Spruce Tone Woods
  • Expression System 2 Pickup

Dreadnought Body

Taylor's most traditional body shape, the dreadnought has been evolved and refine through the years to bring what we have today. Known for the low end and crisp highs, it still maintains that Taylor tonal balance. To enable access to higher frets, this body does sport a Venetian cutaway. This makes the 150e perfect for a fan of traditional guitars and tones.

Layered Sapele/Sitka Spruce Tone Woods

The Taylor 100 Series uses layered sapele, which may not match the tone of solid woods, but it makes the instrument durable, beautiful, and maintains affordability. The layers of wood add resistance to humidity fluctuation and different climates. Now, to give it that signature Taylor tone, the 150e is topped with sitka spruce, Bob Taylor's favorite wood for an all-around great guitar. There really isn't anything this wood is bad for, it can suit flatpickers, aggressive strummers, or even fingerstyle players, and everything in between.

Taylor Expression System 2 Pickup

The 150e comes equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 Pickup and onboard preamp, something you won't find often in this price range. Three individually calibrated piezo sensors sit behind the saddle to capture a dynamic range of acoustic sound. You can be sure that the same sound you hear acoustically will be there when you plug in to a PA, acoustic amp, or even straight to recording software.
