Amplified 12-string tone and playability.

The 150ce dreadnought 12-string acoustic-electric guitar from Taylor provides an unparalleled playing experience for 12-string players. Featuring a torrefied Sitka spruce top, and layered sapele back and sides, it produces a warm yet balanced tone with clear, ringing notes across its wide tonal range. Taylor's redesigned bracing pattern improves the guitar's dynamic range and ensures accurate pitch for both fretted and open strings.

Torrefied Sitka Spruce Top Ages Gracefully

The torrefied Sitka spruce top is treated through a specialized heating process to produce a tone similar to a well-played vintage instrument. This gives the 150ce a natural warmth and resonance right out of the case while allowing its tone to continue evolving gracefully over years of playing.

Layered Sapele Back and Sides Provide Balanced Resonance

The layered sapele back and sides work with the torrefied spruce top to produce a balanced tone with a clear, ringing quality. Sapele shares tonal characteristics with mahogany but adds a touch of extra shimmer in the high end. This combination results in a guitar with warmth, punch and shimmering treble notes.

Redesigned Bracing Improves Dynamics and Pitch Accuracy

Taylor's new bracing pattern for the 150ce improves its dynamic range and ensures accurate pitch for both fretted and open strings. Notes have a long sustain and ring out clearly whether played singly or in full chords. The result is a guitar that can generate high volume and punch without losing musicality.

Cutaway Body and ES2 Pickup System Provide Plugged-in Versatility

The 150ce's cutaway dreadnought body gives you full access to the upper frets, allowing advanced soloing and intricate voicings. Taylor's ES2 pickup system accurately captures the 150ce's acoustic tone when plugged in, providing an easy plug-and-play solution for gigging and recording.
