American Dream Series Slope Shoulder Dreadnought

American Dream Series Slope Shoulder Dreadnought


“The American Dream Series was crafted at the intersection of U.S. craftsmanship, premium tonewoods and great value for working musicians. Made with solid ovangkol back and sides with a spruce top, the AD17 is a Grand Pacific dreadnought that serves up a warm, seasoned response that will remind players of classic acoustic sounds. V-Class bracing helps dial up more volume and sustain along with cleaner intonation all the way down the neck, and chamfered body edges make for a more seamless feel. Clean visual details include a subtle Urban Sienna stain for the back and sides, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, a faux-tortoiseshell pickguard, and a thin matte finish that maximizes resonance. The acoustic-only AD17 ships with a sturdy AeroCase.” – From the Taylor website
