Overview

AD17

The American Dream Series was crafted at the intersection of U.S. craftsmanship, premium tonewoods and great value for working musicians. Made with solid ovangkol back and sides with a spruce top, the AD17 is a Grand Pacific dreadnought that serves up a warm, seasoned response that will remind players of classic acoustic sounds. V-Class bracing helps dial up more volume and sustain along with cleaner intonation all the way down the neck, and chamfered body edges make for a more seamless feel. Clean visual details include a subtle Urban Sienna stain for the back and sides, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, a faux-tortoiseshell pickguard, and a thin matte finish that maximizes resonance. The acoustic-only AD17 ships with a sturdy AeroCase.

FEATURES

Grand Pacific

This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.

Ovangkol

Although not as well-known as its Indian rosewood cousin, ovangkol shares many of the same properties, making it a versatile, great-sounding tonewood.

Sitka Spruce

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

No Electronics

Whether you’re an acoustic purist or simply don’t need a pickup, we’ve got you covered.

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.
