"When I am in the store with a customer asking for a 12 string guitar, this is my first port of call. The 150e is a 12 string guitar that, thanks to the way Taylor build and set up their guitars, is extremely playable (coming with an unbelievably low action for a 12 string, without the guitar choking out) and has a very balanced tone across the fretboard.Because the guitar has a Dreadnought body, it is a powerful tool in the hands of a strummer, but the way that Taylor brace their Dreadnoughts mean that it can also be driven and very articulate in the hands of a finger style guitarist.The Taylor 150e also comes with Taylor's very own Expression System-2 electronics. I absolutely love this pickup system (it's what I have in my main guitar), and it faithfully reproduces the sound of the guitar. This means that when plugged in to an amp or a desk, rather than hearing the sound of a piezo pickup, you hear the actual tone and voice of your instrument, just louder.
Like all Taylor guitars the 150e comes with a peerless setup and plays
amazingly well all over the neck. Taylor believe so much in the quality
of their guitars that they offer a 12 year warranty if you register your

For years, Taylor's sleek, ultra-playable necks have helped define a great 12-string experience. The 12-string Dreadnought 150e fits that signature playability and tonal clarity into an affordable package, making a quality 12-string more accessible to budget-minded players looking to broaden their musical palette. The Dreadnought body's strong low-end response balances well with the crisp octave shimmer, producing a tone that's lush and articulate, with lots of dynamic range. Features include layered walnut back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top, 1-7/8-inch neck, matte-finish body, black binding and pickguard, and natural-sounding Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup.
Taylor's refined take on the classic Dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with low-end power, a snappy
midrange, and strong, clear treble notes, retaining the essence of the balanced Taylor sound.
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous
playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.
Taylor's layered woods incorporate three layers of wood, with a middle core of poplar and veneer on each side. Layered woods allow a blend exotic looks with climate-resilient construction.
The Taylor ES2 pickup captures the acoustic and dynamic properties of the guitar when amplified. Pickup sensors are placed behind the saddle of the guitar instead of underneath it which allows them to respond more naturally to the guitar's energy, giving you an amplified sound that's closer to the acoustic tone of your guitar.
