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.

Left-handed model also available.

Purchased this guitar in December of 2019. Just an average player but tried a number of other 12-strings and this one stood out in terms of sound and easy playability. The staff at L and M in Sydney were very helpful to help out and offer sound advice and service. The new store is one of the nicest in the country.

I've had my Taylor 150e for over a year now and thought it time to pipe up with my comments. In thinking about my experiences playing this instrument over the past few months I had to rack my brains for any cons to the instrument. The *only* one I could think of was that the action was a little high for me, purely a personal thing. It was easy enough to shave down the saddle a bit and now .. it's perfect! Nice and loud but clear without being boomy. Wide comfortable neck that's easy to play for long periods of time. I would advise anyone looking for a decent 12-string acoustic instrument to very seriously consider the 150e. You won't regret it!

Absolutely love this guitar. Strings sit nice and close to the neck so no need to jam on them (which wouldn't be ideal for beginner players). Beautiful finish and feel to the guitar. Really versatile in that you can play a lot of songs that weren't originally 12-string and they sound great. And the price isn't too crazy for what you are getting either.

I had been shopping 12 strings for a long time, reading reviews, and trying out various models in music stores before settling on the Taylor 150e. I notice most reviews are written during the honeymoon period and often simply state how fantastic a guitar is. I have had this guitar a little while now and will try to give you the honest low down on the +/- of this unit. First off, it boasts excellent fit and finish. Quality control at Taylor clearly has some high standards and the results are impressive. I understand that the previous versions of these instruments were Spruce/Sapele, but now they are all Spruce/Walnut, as mine is. I am not going to pretend I hear a real difference between Sapele/Walnut, but the Walnut is a whole lot prettier with its deep contrasting woodgrain. Unique to Taylor is the "behind the saddle" Expression System 2 pickup. It is effective and produces a true sound. However I do find it significantly less sensitive than say, the Fishman electronics on my Martin. I simply don't get the same degree of output at the source, and have to have this guitar dialed in at a much higher volume level on the mixer to get the same level that I get with my other guitars. The guitar also lacks an on board tuner. In my experience however, such tuners tend to be only moderately accurate, so that is a feature that I for one probably would not use anyway on an instrument where precision tuning is a must. Best to rely on a quality clip on tuner, or better yet, a high end strobe tuner to ensure your tuning is bang on. Unplugged, the tone is crisp and extremely clean. I mean REALLY clean. There are no muddy tones in this guitar at all. It does lack some bottom end punch that you get from big bodied 12 strings, but I don't mind sacrificing a bit of that if the result is a guitar that is comfortable to play for extended periods. The body is comparable in size to my Martin GPCPA 6 string, and in fact has much the same feel to it. I played a number of significantly more expensive instruments and ultimately I ended up choosing the Taylor 150e - I found the tone and play-ability superior even to more expensive models from both this and other manufacturers. If this model appeals to you, you might also want to check out the Martin D12X1AE. It came down to those two guitars for me, and ultimately I chose the Taylor. If you are looking for a 12 string in this price range - or even beyond - take a serious look at the 150e.
