Taylor’s American Dream Series

Crafted with spellbinding flame maple top, back, and sides, the Taylor American Dream AD27e bursts forth with a roaring balance of sparkling tone that’s beyond your imagination. The AD27e’s Grand Pacific balanced body contours and air movement from V-Class bracing combine to create phenomenal projection for live unplugged applications. Outfitted with Taylor’s ES2 electronics, you can also take this guitar to the stage or the studio to sample it’s bright, clear note separation. Guitarists attest the AD27e sounds every bit as amazing as it looks. Did we mention, this solid wood guitar is made in America?

Taylor’s American-made legacy

In 1974, a young Bob Taylor cut his teeth building custom acoustics out of San Diego’s American Dream guitar factory. The American Dream series pays tribute to this time in Taylor’s history with its working-class, American-made pro instruments, built with the same values and American spirit that have driven the Taylor name for the past 45-plus years.

A maple dream

One strum and you’ll be hooked! The AD27e’s tone hits every bit as good as its tonewood looks. That’s because this solid flame maple top, back, and sides create a delightfully bright and vibrant sound that exhibits projection for days. What’s more, it also possesses enough power to punch through busy mixes with excellent string-to-string balance. Paired with its easy playing maple neck and smooth-fretting eucalyptus fingerboard, the AD27e makes for a guitar packed with rich, clear tone and classic Taylor playability.

Grand Pacific dreadnought design

The AD27e’s slope-shoulder Grand Pacific design is inspired by the Laurel Canyon acoustic scene that master designer Andy Powers grew up with in the Southern Californian ’60s and ’70s. Its smooth top end and full, balanced bass go naturally with the human voice. The enlarged lower bout supplies a good platform for recording and acoustic gigging of any kind. It’s the evolution of the traditional dreadnought sound. And paired with Taylor’s V-Class Bracing, the Grand Pacific is better than ever.

V-Class Bracing

Taylor’s V-Class Bracing proves that a guitar top can be stiff and flexible at the same time. Stiffness parallel to the strings enhances rigidity for greater sustain. While flexibility on the sides generates the air movement necessary for that robust dreadnought projection. It’s the best of all worlds — tone and resonance, output and sustain. V-Class Bracing also reduces harmonic distortion between the strings and top for chords that sound more in tune. This premium feature is normally reserved for the cream of Taylor’s guitar crop. But incredibly, it comes as a standard feature on your American Dream AD27e.
