Taylor 150e 12 String Dreadnought Electro Acoustic Guitar, Natural

Details
The Taylor 150e 12 String Electro Acoustic Guitar features a dreadnought body shape, giving it a solid mid to low-end power. The body's back and sides are crafted from sapele laminate, which reinforces the lower-end charge and responds well to changes in temperature and heat, making it very useful for those who like to take their guitar with them wherever they go. The top is made from sitka spruce, which has perfect resonant qualities to project a loud sound with the maximum clarity. The top is backed up by Taylor's 100 Series 12-string bracing, offering more than adequate support whilst also allowing it to resonate fully. The Taylor also features their expression system 2 electronics to enhance your sound and delivers clear, natural-sounding amplified tones for gigging or recording.

Dreadnought Body

Taylor have refined the classic Dreadnought shape to suit their own needs, producing low-end power, a snappy midrange, and strong, clear treble notes. Whilst still offering the powerful tones that you would normally get from a dreadnought, the redesigned-take provides the essence of the balanced Taylor sound. With a blend of power and articulation, this dreadnought acoustic is perfect for flatpickers as well as players who love the traditional guitar shape and tones.

Sitka Spruce & Sapele

The Taylor guitar features a beautiful sitka spruce top that offers a broad dynamic range and a crisp articulation. Sitka spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. This stunning tonewood is contrasted with sapele back and sides, which delivers a consistent and balanced tone with an excellent top-end shimmer. This stunning combination of tonewoods not only provides you with a beautiful guitar, but also offers a great combination of tones.

Intuitive Design Nuances

The finishing appointments across the guitar lend themselves beautifully to the stylish aesthetics and solid functionality of the 150E. The Tusq nut and saddle guarantee that string spacing is upheld perfectly, whilst the sustain produced by the strings is maintained perfectly. Die-cast chrome mini tuning machines retain tuning integrity with absolute precision. A decorative three-ring rosette surrounds the soundhole and a black pickguard protects the body below the soundhole from unwanted picks and scrapes.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
