American Dream Features

Solid Tonewoods for the Richest, Clearest Sound

Taylor's most affordable family of solid-wood guitars, the American Dream Series offers a choice of warm, woody walnut with spruce, punchy and focused sapele with mahogany, and an all-maple Flametop.

Innovation Inside, Comfort Outside

Every model in the American Dream Series is built with Taylor's V-Class bracing, which articulates the guitar's vibration to produce unmatched volume and blooming sustain. On the outside, these guitars feature chamfered edges for a smoother, more accommodating feel.

Expression System 2 Acoustic Pickup

All models in the American Dream Series are available with ES2 electronics, the proprietary under-saddle pickup and preamp that delivers authentic acoustic tone when you plug in through an amp or PA. Select models are available without electronics.

Simple Details for a Neo-Traditional Aesthetic

The American Dream Series is appointed with subtle details that evoke an old-school sensibility, including 4mm dot fretboard inlays, faux tortoiseshell pickguards (except Blacktop models), a thin matte finish for an extra lively response, and a Tobacco Sunburst top finish for models ending in “SB.”

Blacktop Finish Makes a Bold Statement

Sporting a striking matte black finish treatment for the spruce top, the AD17 Blacktop is a Grand Pacific dreadnought that blends its traditional footprint with a contemporary visual flair.

AeroCase Included with Every Guitar

Every guitar in the American Dream Series comes with a super-durable AeroCase, a soft-sided case that offers all the protection of a traditional hardshell case at one-third the weight.
