Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream series embodies the principles of innovation and craftsmanship. These models feature all solid woods, award winning V-class bracing, and deliver an incredibly rich and diverse voice in the grand pacific body shape. The AD17e-SB combines the traditional spruce top with walnut back and sides, creating a strong low end bass response and clear top end like rosewood but with a stronger midrange push. The AD17e-SB features a solid spruce top paired with solid walnut back and sides, beautiful sunburst finish on top, V-class bracing, active ES2 electronics, chamfered body edges, satin black tuning machines, and a smooth, matte finish. Guitar ships in a lightweight and super sturdy Aerocase.
