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.
Built with solid ovangkol back and sides and a black, solid spruce top, the Grand Pacific AD17e asserts itself with a bold throwback aesthetic that complements its vintage-inspired tone. Ovangkol brings warmth and pleasing midrange focus, which, in concert with our V-Class bracing architecture, delivers a stunning tonal blend of power, sustain and musicality. Chamfered body edges and the trademark comfort of the Taylor neck make this Grand Pacific dreadnought a dream to play, offering guitarists of all styles and musical needs a versatile solid-wood option at a more accessible price. Simple appointments highlight this model’s musical focus, featuring a black top treatment with a black pickguard, single-ring rosette, 4mm dot fretboard inlays, and an ultra-thin matte finish. It comes with built-in ES2 electronics and ships in a light yet strong AeroCase.
