Taylor 'American Dream' AD17e Blacktop Acoustic Electric Guitar

AD17E BLACKTOP

With the American Dream series of US-built acoustic guitars, Bob Taylor and Andy Powers have opened a new chapter in Taylor value and performance. Never before has it been this affordable to own an American-made Taylor guitar with class-leading features. The Grand Pacific AD17e Blacktop slope-shoulder dreadnought is built from solid Taylor tonewoods (spruce, ovangkol, and mahogany), each with minor cosmetic imperfections to honor the mature sound and workhorse aesthetic these early guitars are known for. Taylor's V-Class Bracing gives the AD17e Blacktop impressive sustain and a clean, pure tone that stands up to even the scrutiny of the studio. All in all, the American Dream Taylor AD17e Blacktop is a professional instrument that comes in at a price that will ensure you're not afraid to take it on the road. Onboard Taylor ES2 electronics — a hallmark of all top-tier Taylors — make the AD17e Blacktop a fantastic option for plug-and-play gigging and recording.

The American Dream series will be available in extremely limited numbers here in Australia - when these guitars are gone, our next shipment will be due December 2020!
