Taylor American Dream AD17e Blacktop
With the American Dream Series, we’re proud to introduce the lowest-priced solid-wood, US-made guitars in the Taylor line. V-Class bracing and our signature playability deliver premium performance, while the appointments were streamlined to fit the function of these guitars. Designed for the times, these guitars have everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
A guitar made with a top, back and sides of solid wood will produce the most tonal complexity and become increasingly richer, more resonant, and more responsive as it ages.
Our revolutionary internal architecture is like a finely engineered sonic engine. Notes are stronger, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other, producing a more musical sound.
Our state-of-the-art factory headquarters in California, where our product development team operates, offers the highest levels of manufacturing sophistication and craftsmanship expertise.
The best of both worlds: all the protection of a hardshell case with material construction that’s a fraction of the weight.
Built with solid ovangkol back and sides and a black, solid spruce top, the Grand Pacific AD17e asserts itself with a bold throwback aesthetic that complements its vintage-inspired tone. Ovangkol brings warmth and pleasing midrange focus, which, in concert with our V-Class bracing architecture, delivers a stunning tonal blend of power, sustain and musicality. Chamfered body edges and the trademark comfort of the Taylor neck make this Grand Pacific dreadnought a dream to play, offering guitarists of all styles and musical needs a versatile solid-wood option at a more accessible price. Simple appointments highlight this model’s musical focus, featuring a black top treatment with a black pickguard, single-ring rosette, 4mm dot fretboard inlays, and an ultra-thin matte finish. It comes with built-in ES2 electronics and ships in a light yet strong AeroCase.
