FEATURES

Essential Features and Clean Aesthetics

With two tonewood pairings and a sleek, unpretentious visual character, the American Dream Series delivers performance without frills.

Experience the Richness of Solid Tonewoods

The American Dream Series is Taylor's most affordable entry point into the world of solid woods, which boast powerful resonance and distinct tonal flavors. Choose from the warmth and focus of sapele with mahogany or the clarity and balance of ovangkol with spruce.

Innovation Inside, Comfort Outside

Every model in the American Dream Series is built with our V-Class bracing, which articulates the guitar's vibration to produce unmatched volume and blooming sustain. On the outside, these guitars feature chamfered edges for a smoother, more accommodating feel.

Expression System 2 Acoustic Pickup

All models in the American Dream Series are available with ES2 electronics, the proprietary under-saddle pickup and preamp that delivers authentic acoustic tone when you plug in through an amp or PA. Select models are available without electronics.

Austere Details for a Neo-Traditional Aesthetic

The American Dream Series is sparingly appointed with subtle details that evoke a restrained, old-school sensibility, including 4mm dot fretboard inlays, faux tortoiseshell pickguards (except Blacktop models) and a thin matte finish that preserves resonance.

Blacktop Finish Makes a Bold Statement

Sporting a striking matte black finish treatment for the spruce top, the AD17 Blacktop is a Grand Pacific dreadnought that blends its traditional footprint with a contemporary visual flair.

AeroCase Included with Every Guitar

Every guitar in the American Dream Series comes with a super-durable AeroCase, a soft-sided case that offers all the protection of a traditional hardshell case at one-third the weight.
