Overview

AD27e Flametop

Watch Video
Just as the Grand Pacific body shape introduced a new kind of seasoned tone to the Taylor line, the AD27e Flametop brings a new sonic flavor with an earthy, broken-in character. This dreadnought-style guitar boasts back, sides and top of solid Big Leaf maple, with our V-Class bracing under the hood. Combined with nickel bronze strings from D'Addario, the maple construction results in an appealingly rustic sound that's totally distinct from the pristine, vibrant quality that many players associate with Taylor. Visually, the AD27e Flametop offers a rootsy, workmanlike vibe that fits right in with its siblings in the American Dream Series, with maple's beautiful figuring complemented by a dusky Woodsmoke finish and a satin sheen. It's available both with and without ES2 electronics and ships in a lightweight, super-sturdy AeroCase.

Features

Grand Pacific

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

Maple

Revoiced to produce greater warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness

Big Leaf Maple

Though mostly known as a body wood, maple offers a dry, midrange-centric tone profile when used as a soundboard.

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.
