Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream series embodies the principles of innovation and craftsmanship. These amazing 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 AD17 Blacktop 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 AD17 Blacktop features a solid spruce top paired with solid walnut back and sides, chamfered body edges, and matte Blacktop finish and natural back and sides to create a unique, throwback, understated aesthetic. Guitar ships in a lightweight and super sturdy Aerocase.
