Taylor AD17E-Blacktop American Dream Acoustic Guitar w/Electronics. Made In The U.S.A.

Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream Series embodies the principles of innovation, craftsmanship, and resourcefulness we always turn to during challenging times. Facing the unprecedented 2020 COVID-19 crisis, Taylor Guitars pushed themselves to design a new guitar series that responded to the needs of players — something that combined performance and value. These US-made, solid-wood guitars are distilled into the essential elements of premium Taylor performance — featuring V-Class bracing and our signature playability — with simple appointments so they won’t break the bank. The series introduces the lowest-priced US-made, all-solid-wood guitars in the Taylor line.

*The ES2 Electronics

The Taylor Expression System® 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sounds to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
