Overview

AD12e-SB

Watch Video

The AD12e-SB continues the American Dream Series tradition of high-performance, U.S.-made, all-solid-wood guitars that match great tone with an accessible price. This compact Grand Concert fits the bill with walnut back and sides, a spruce top and V-Class interior bracing, adding up to a warm, woody sound with bold volume, blooming sustain and a low-end response that will grow richer over time as the wood matures. Ideal for fingerstyle players as well as anyone interested in recording applications, this model matches its punchy sound with a comfortable feel thanks to accommodating dimensions and the slender Taylor Neck profile. Sparingly appointed to preserve its affordable price point, the AD12-e SB introduces a striking Tobacco Sunburst top color treatment to the American Dream family, accented with a thin matte finish, a firestripe faux tortoiseshell pickguard, black top purfling and satin black tuners. It ships with ES2 electronics and a lightweight, durable AeroCase.

Features

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Walnut

Walnut’s crisp highs are balanced by a deep, woody low end that emerges as the guitar is played in.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

V-Class Bracing

Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
