The American Dream® Series

The essence of a great acoustic guitar. Discover the entry point to the solid-wood, V-Class Taylor experience.
The American Dream® Series

Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream Series embodies the principles of innovation, craftsmanship and resourcefulness Taylor was built upon. For this series, we pushed ourselves to design US-made guitars that responded to the needs of players at every level — something that combined performance and value. These solid-wood guitars are distilled into the essential elements of premium Taylor performance — featuring V-Class bracing and our signature playability — with simple appointments so they won’t break the bank.

Solid-wood tonewood pairings within the series include solid African ovangkol back and sides with a spruce top, and sapele back and sides with a mahogany top. The ovangkol/spruce models are offered in two distinctive aesthetic treatments: a natural top with stained ovangkol back and sides, and a blacktop edition, featuring a matte black top and natural ovangkol back and sides. The series was introduced with the Grand Pacific body style, our round-shoulder dreadnought, which boasts a warm, seasoned voice and powerful low end, making it a versatile workhorse. Unique features include chamfered body edges and a thin matte finish that optimizes the acoustic resonance of the body and supports the understated aesthetic.
