Taylor AD17BT GP American Dream Series Acoustic Guitar Spruce Ovangkol Black Top with Aero-Case
Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream Series embodies the principles of innovation, craftsmanship and resourcefulness we always turn to during challenging times. Facing the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, we pushed ourselves to design a new guitar series that responded to the needs of players — something that combined performance and value. These US-made, 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. The series introduces the lowest-priced US-made, all-solid-wood guitars in the Taylor line.
Tonewood pairings within the series include solid African ovangkol back and sides with a sprucetop, 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.
