Taylor American Dream AD17e Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Natural

Sitka Spruce Top | Ovangkol Back and Sides | Tropical Mahogany Neck | Eucalyptus Fretboard | Expression System® 2 Electronics | Aerocase Case

  • American-made with signature Taylor craftsmanship
  • All-solid tonewoods generate power and complex tone
  • Ovangkol body and spruce top for warmth and clarity
  • V-Class bracing adds more volume and sustain
  • Includes ES2 pickup
  • Includes lightweight, super-durable AeroCase

Designed to provide everyday musicians with a more affordable entry point to the all-solid-wood acoustic playing experience, the AD17e from the American Dream Series serves up a rich, seasoned acoustic tone that bridges the gap between classic sound and modern playability. Solid ovangkol and spruce team up for a bold, punchy midrange with crisp highs and clear low-end power, while chamfered body edges make for a seamless feel. This Grand Pacific dreadnought features our tone-enhancing V-Class bracing and the ES2 pickup for natural plugged-in sound. The acoustic-only AD17 ships with a sturdy AeroCase.

Grand Pacific

This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.

Ovangkol

Although not as well-known as its Indian rosewood cousin, ovangkol shares many of the same properties, making it a versatile, great-sounding tonewood.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

V-Class Bracing

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
