THE 150E IS AN AFFORDABLE MODERN CLASSIC, AND FINE EXAMPLE OF WHAT A TAYLOR 12-STRING IS ALL ABOUT!
We all love the jangle and mood that a 12-String guitar evokes, but we don't always love playing them. Fatter necks, wider fingerboards, and stiff action can make for a miserable experience. That's why more than forty years ago, Bob Taylor set out to design a new kind a 12-string guitar. A guitar that almost anybody could pick up and feel right at home on. If you take note at how many of those guitars have graced professional stages all that time since, it's safe to say his design worked. Combining a gorgeous solid Sitka Spruce top with layered Walnut back and sides, we get a wonderfully full and balanced 12-String dreadnaught tone. Player's will notice the bigger bass and resonance of a Dread, but with that sparkle and clarity that Taylors are so famous for. The Dreadnaught body shape will lend itself well to a wide range of sounds and styles, but will perform especially well for hard strummers and flat pickers looking for a little extra oomph and headroom in their acoustic instrument. The solid Sitka Spruce top will provide big projection and sparkle while the extra rigid layered Walnut back and sides will allow the top to really move air and resonate. Add updated bracing design and you've got one bold sounding Taylor guitar!
