A Heavenly-Sounding 12-String Acoustic-ElectricWhy stay with six strings when you can have 12? The Taylor 150e dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar doubles your melodic avenues over a smooth ebony fingerboard spanning 20 frets. A solid Sitka spruce topped body with layered sapele back and sides gives your strums plenty of volume, while Taylor's awesome Expression System electronics offer the best capture and reproduction that your performance deserves. All 12 strings will cut though in pristine sonic fashion, and you can be sure that your output will always reach the crowd in a way that simply just can't be ignored.
Taylor's 100 Series: Taylor Tone Starts HereIn the acoustic guitar world, everyone knows the Taylor name, and the 100 series brings you the quality you'd expect from the company Bob Taylor started almost fifty years ago. Each guitar in this series feature layered sapele and spruce bodies in dreadnought and Grand Auditorium shapes. These acoustic-electric guitars may be less expensive than Taylor's higher-numbered series, but their tone and playability is still impressive and addicting.
Dreadnought Sitka Spruce and Sapele BodyWhen you think of an acoustic guitar, the shape that always comes to mind is the dreadnought shape. Its large size and broad shoulders are recognized instantly, and by utilizing a spruce top, your 150e will have a nice aural crispiness to it to help your playing cut through the mix. Sapele, which originates from west Africa, is sometimes mistakenly referred to as African mahogany because of its visual resemblance to khaya -- the actual wood that's commercially named African mahogany. Sapele yields a sound similar to mahogany with plenty of lows and mids, but it also adds in a little treble to brighten things up.
Welcoming Sapele Neck with Ebony FretboardLike mahogany necks, sapele necks offer a decent helping of sustain. This is perfect for a 12-string guitar in a dreadnought shape -- you'll never be short on volume when you really strum your Taylor 150e hard and fast. The ebony fretboard is smooth and welcoming to your fingers, and every string on every fret harnesses an unbeatable action. You won't want to put your Taylor 150e down once you get your hands on it.
Can't Beat Taylor's Expression System ElectronicsTaylor's acoustic-electric guitars are about great sound whether you're sitting around the campfire or plugged in at a show -- thanks to the powerful Taylor Expression System. This all-magnetic system employs a dynamic body sensor affixed to the soundboard, a dynamic string sensor underneath the fretboard, and a discrete, hidden, and noninvasive preamp system to bring you a signal ready for amplification that no one within earshot could resist.
