American Dream Series

Developed during the uncertainty of a pandemic, the American Dream Series embodies the plucky spirit of innovation that has fueled Taylor for nearly half a century.

Thoughtfully distilled to deliver exceptional value and pro-level performance, these guitars offer a more accessible entry point to the solid-wood acoustic experience. Three Grand Pacific models headline the series, voiced with V-Class bracing to serve up the seasoned tone that defines our round-shoulder dreadnought. Wood options include sapele topped with mahogany (AD27), which yields a dry, focused response; and ovangkol topped with spruce (AD17), producing top-end sparkle balanced by warm mids. Workmanlike appointments emphasize function over filigree. Notable touches include chamfered body edges and super-thin matte finish, which opens up the sound, while the matte-black finish on the AD17 Blacktop makes a bold visual statement.
