Designed to provide everyday musicians with a more affordable entry point to the all-solid-wood acoustic playing experience, the AD17e from the American Dream Series serves up a rich, seasoned acoustic tone that bridges the gap between classic sound and modern playability. Solid ovangkol and spruce team up for a bold, punchy midrange with crisp highs and clear low-end power, while chamfered body edges make for a seamless feel. This Grand Pacific dreadnought features our tone-enhancing V-Class bracing and the ES2 pickup for natural plugged-in sound, and ships with a lightweight, super-sturdy AeroCase for easy transportation.
This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.
Although not as well-known as its Indian rosewood cousin, ovangkol shares many of the same properties, making it a versatile, great-sounding tonewood.
The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

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