There’s nothing like a Taylor. Music Experience 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.
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..
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.
