Never one to shy away from challenge or a chance to innovate, Taylor looked at the global crisis and responded with the American Dream series - their lowest-priced, all solid wood guitars, made right here in the USA!
Taylor has combined the essential traits of their pro-level instruments, like V-class bracing, thin matte finish, and chamfered edges with no frills appointments, for a guitar that has "everything you need, and nothing you don’t."
The AD17 Black Top features a solid Sitka spruce top for warm tone and even projection, and solid ovangkol back and sides for rosewood-like sustain and clarity. The Grand Pacific slope-shouldered dreadnought shape will fill the room, whether you're strumming chords or delicately fingerpicking, and the thin matte finish ensures optimal responsiveness. Priced with built-in ES2 electronics and Taylor's travel-ready AeroCase!
Please note: our photos are representative of this model, but due to inventory turnover they may vary slightly from an instrument received after online checkout.
