Presenting the all new Taylor AD17 Blacktop, part of Taylor's new American Dream series of all American Built, All Solid Wood guitars.

Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream® Series reflects the principles of innovation and resourcefulness that have always helped Taylor get through challenging times. Facing the global COVID-19 crisis, Taylor found ourselves again challenged to invent their way out of a mess. Making music felt more important than ever, and yet Taylor knew many folks would have less to spend on a new guitar. So, they thought, "how can we pack all the essential ingredients of a great guitar into a pro-level instrument and make it more affordable?"

With the American Dream Series, Taylor is proud to introduce the lowest-priced solid-wood, US-made guitars in the Taylor line. V-Class bracing and their signature playability deliver premium performance, while the appointments were streamlined to fit the function of these guitars. Designed for the times, these guitars have everything you need, and nothing you don’t.

This blacktop American Dream Grand Pacific makes a striking first impression and backs it up with a serious musical punch. Made with solid ovangkol back and sides topped with spruce, this all-solid-wood guitar represents the resilience of Taylor’s commitment to meeting the needs of everyday musicians even in historically difficult times. Ovangkol’s warm, seasoned tone bears hints of rosewood’s lush sparkle, with greater presence in the midrange, while the spruce top adds clarity and articulation. It’s all punched up by the V-Class bracing under the hood, which optimizes the tonal output for greater volume, longer sustain, and ear-pleasing intonation up and down the neck. Aside from the black finish for the top, a thin 2.0-mil matte layer combines a rootsy look with a responsive voice. Additional details include chamfered body edges, a single-ring rosette, 4mm dot fretboard inlays, and a black pickguard. It ships in a sturdy yet lightweight Taylor AeroCase.
