An all solid wood US built, high end Taylor guitar at a previously impossible price point, the AD17e Blacktop is part of the American Dream Series, an answer by the creative minds at Taylor of how to keep building guitars during the world situation in 2020.

A matt black sitka spruce top (with black pickguard) couples with solid ovangkol back and sides - providing a broad dynamic range and tonal response similar to that of Rosewood, but with a little more mid range emphasis.

The easily recognisable round shoulder dreadnought encourages a wash of notes, with a mature sound that harks back to vintage era guitars / recordings and tips a hat to guitar building heritage - and when this is coupled with the sustain, volume, intonation and projection boosting V-Class bracing - you have an extraordinary versatile and affordable instrument.

American Dream Guitars features wood that would normally not cut the mustard on their guitars - with slight cosmetic blemishes, and Taylor fully embraces these flaws on their sleeve - with a subtle Urban Sienna stain bringing out the detail of the grain further for all to see.

Chamfered body edges ensure a silky smooth feel and the Eucalyptus fretboard plays smooth and in-tune right the way up to the higher reaches of the fretboard.

Sporting the same honest and transparent ES2 Expression System electronics we know and trust, the AD17e Blacktop ships in an ultra lightweight yet durable and portable Aerocase.

  • Made in America with all-solid tonewoods
  • Walnut/spruce combo serves up warm, seasoned tone
  • V-Class bracing adds power and sustain
  • Grand Pacific body offers a classic vibe and look
  • Includes ES2 pickup and AeroCase for protection
