Taylor 150e 12-String Acoustic/Electric
 
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 sapele back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top, 1-7/8-inch neck, matte-finish body, black binding and pickguard, and Taylor's Expression System acoustic electronics.
 
Dreadnought
SHAPE
Dreadnought
The potent tone flatpickers and strummers love. The most traditional of guitar shapes, Bob Taylor has evolved the Taylor Dreadnought over time to honor its enduring sonic heritage yet also refine the look and sound into a more modern package. The Taylor Dreadnought still boasts that powerful dreadnought tone that old school pickers expect, with deep lows and crisp highs, but with a voice that, like every Taylor, is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Perhaps more than any other shape, the Dreadnought remains linked with roots music like bluegrass and folk, in part because of its traditional role in defining those sounds. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love our Dreadnought's blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.

WOOD
Layered Sapele
While the rich tones of solid wood remain unmatched, a layered wood construction can yield great sound in a beautiful, durable and affordable instrument. Such is the case with layered sapele, in which Taylor use interior and exterior veneers of sapele with a core layer of poplar between them. One of the benefits of layered wood for guitars is extra resilience in the face of fluctuating humidity conditions. All Taylor layered-wood models feature a solid wood top to optimize the tonal response.
12-String Bracing
BRACING
12-String Bracing
12-string  bracing is designed to handle the increased tension of twice the number of strings and prevent the top from being overdriven.

Expression System
ELECTRONICS
Expression System
Faithfully amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar. Years of research brought Taylor to a simple realization: Nothing sounds as true and musical as a microphone. With that as a starting point, Taylor's David Hosler led the team responsible for the Expression System's breakthrough technology. Utilizing a unique Dynamic Body Sensor® mounted to the soundboard, a Dynamic String Sensor® embedded beneath the fretboard, and a discrete preamp, the advanced ES technology is unlike any other guitar pickup system.
