AD17e BlacktopWatch Video
One of the lowest-priced all-solid-wood guitars produced in our California facility, the AD17e Blacktop from the American Dream Series offers players a more accessible entry point to the tonal complexity and sophistication that come with solid-wood construction. Walnut back and sides pair with a spruce top to produce a warm, shimmering midrange with a splash of treble clarity, and you'll hear clear low-end power thanks to the dreadnought-style body and V-Class bracing inside. This model is dressed in a striking blacktop color treatment for the soundboard, and it ships with our ES2 acoustic pickup and a lightweight, yet sturdy AeroCase.
This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.
Walnut’s crisp highs are balanced by a deep, woody low end that emerges as the guitar is played in.
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.
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.
