Expand your sonic palette with the Taylor 150e Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar, offering exceptional playability, tone and Taylor-quality craftsmanship at a price that doesn't break the bank.

Prized for their sleek, ultra-playable profiles, Taylor 12-string necks have offered players an incredible 12-string experience. Fitting that renowned comfort and playability into a budget-friendly package, Taylor is proud to introduce another 12-string to the Taylor family with the Dreadnought 12-String 150e. The body is crafted from layered sapele paired with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard supported by specifically voiced 100 series 12-string bracing. The potent low-end of the Dreadnought 150e 12-String is beautifully balanced by the crisp octave shimmer, producing a lush, articulate voice with an extensive dynamic range. The 1-7/8" sapele neck is topped with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard that boasts 6mm dot inlays. The matte-finished body, black binding and pickguard add a nice aesthetic touch. The Taylor 150e Dreadnought 12-String also comes performance-ready with the Taylor Expression System to faithfully capture the guitar's natural voice, a Tusq Nut/Saddle, and a set of chrome die-cast mini tuners. A Taylor gig bag is included with your purchase.

    Comments about Taylor 150e Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've played guitar for about 15 years. I bought this guitar on an impulse at the store in Indy. I am very skeptical when it comes to purchasing musical instruments but when I played this guitar I knew I had to have it.

    The guitar plays well, and my hands do not fatigue unless I play this guitar for about an hour. I haven't found any fret buzz or high or low spots in the neck.

    The guitar is intonated properly and stays in tune very well. I have to tune up ever 3 or 4 days. I travel to play a local open mic and when I get the guitar out of the case it is always in tune.

    The sound is very good. It has what I consider a deep strong tone, yet it still has a shimmer on the highs. Its volume is quite adequate with a full strum.

    The piezo sounds great and the pots work well. I play plugged in at a local venue and very seldomly do I get feedback. I always receive compliments on my tone. The controls are not marked and I found no reference to them in the instruction manual.

    As far as construction quality goes I can find no flaws. The guitar is made in Mexico. I watched a video of the Mexico Taylor plant. Coming for a manufacturing background I can assure you that this guitar was not made in a sweatshop like other guitars in this price range.

    The finish is not glossy and their is no fancy inlays or binding, but I still have received many compliments on the beauty of my instrument.

    I broke the high "G" twice. In my entire time I've playing I've probably broke 5 strings. This isn't normal for me. I think this is due to the length of the string and angle past the headstock. I kept the guitar tuned down for 1 week after installing the new string and then tuned up once the string was adequately stretched.

    Comments about Taylor 150e Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I never really felt the "need" for a 12 string until I picked this one up and played it. I couldn't leave the store without it. After several weeks with this one I wonder how I could have not owned a 12 string. I am not a brand snob as I've seen dogs built by the "legends", but I am a sound snob. Interesting that this guitar, while made in Mexico, sounds every bit as nice as the one 3X it's price that strangely has no country of origin clearly marked anywhere? I'm not going to tell you this is the finest 12 string on the planet, but I can tell you the sample I bought is the finest for $699 I've ever held or heard.
