The Taylor American Dream AD17e-SB at a glance

With the Taylor American Dream AD17e-SB, the traditional US manufacturer expands its American Dream series with another fabulous model.

Thanks to their terrific sound, pickup and fancy design, these attractive instruments fully take the stage for themselves. An added bonus is the included AeroCase.

American Dream AD17e-SB Front
A fully solid acoustic guitar with excellent price-performance ratio enriches your music
Body
Both the construction and selected tonewoods provide absolutely convincing sound characteristics

Structure and sound

The AD17e-SB owes its outstanding sound to select tonewoods, Grand Pacific construction and its V-Class bracing. The large soundbox, in-house bracing for improved vibration response, and fully solid construction provide the necessary assertiveness and excellent sustain that are essential for a compelling performance. The walnut body produces expressive basses and warm mids, which are extended by the spruce top and brilliant highs. This results in exactly the sound that is required for high authenticity and makes the instrument an absolute must-have for singer-songwriters.

Playability
The acoustic guitar is designed for a pleasant feel in addition to its great sound

Playability

The Grand Pacific design is especially suitable for tall guitarists due to its voluminous body. furthermore, its mahogany neck with eucalyptus fingerboard fits extremely well in the hand, providing stability with a comfortable weight. It is not for nothing that mahogany is one of the most popular woods for guitar necks. With a nut width of 44.45 mm, the guitar also meets all the criteria for powerful strumming and flatpicking. Dot inlays on the fretboard, meanwhile, are a useful guide. Long sessions, rehearsals or shows can be enjoyed completely comfortably due to these advantageous features.

Pickup system
In-house pickup system for a voluminous stage performance

Electronics

For great stage performances, the guitar is equipped with the Expression System 2. This Taylor pickup system shines with innovation and great performance. It is an under-saddle pickup with three sensors that transmit a pristine sound, perfect for those who want to show off the natural sound of their acoustic guitar. In addition, the pickup has three pots that allow individual control of the bass, midrange and treble.

Design
The attractive design completes the stage set

Design

The guitar is rounded off by its attractive appearance, which attracts all the attention. The natural grain of the body contrasts with the top in the eye-catching Tobacco Sunburst finish, which is without a doubt the visual highlight. This is harmonized by the Tortoise pickguard, which additionally protects the material from damage during pick play. A definite asset to any stage set.

Taylor - The epitome of fine quality

As one of the largest guitar manufacturers, Taylor is truly an authority in the production of first-class instruments. Thus, professional manufacturing by skilled crafts men results in the very finest products for life, whose value is always maintained - or even increased! This is due in equal part to exquisite tonewoods, which do not warp due to long storage and selected quality and as a result can hardly be surpassed in terms of high quality. Only spruce, mahogany, cedar or Koa of proven quality are used for the tops. By the way, careful production in combination with the best materials does not only apply to guitars. Guitar bags and all accessories are also of first-class quality. Finally, a conscientious final inspection does not let even the smallest defects pass and ensures absolutely flawless guitars even before shipment.

And that's not all: Taylor also attaches great importance to environmentally conscious actions.

Ebony & Koa: Sustainability at Taylor Guitars

Uncontrolled clearing of forests and overexploitation lead to massively endangered wood species, which can no longer regenerate due to the high pace of mining. These include ebony and koa in particular, whose dwindling stocks and the resulting ecological problems have prompted a rethink at Taylor Guitars.

Taylor Sustainability

Sustainable ebony cultivation in Cameroon

Because ebony's hard, supple texture makes it particularly finger-friendly, it has long been the preferred choice for making fingerboards. Its attractive appearance is also extremely popular for bridges, headstock rests, bridge Pins and Bindings. However, high demand and a thriving black market outstripped stocks, landing Ebony on the Red List of Endangered Species in 1994. Moreover, only the deep black heartwood, which makes up only a fraction of the tree, was used, resulting in a disproportionately large amount of waste in production. In order to protect the forests, Taylor has thus been working since 2011 with the Crelicam Wood Mill in Yaoundé in Cameroon to promote controlled consumption by processing waste products.

"We need to use the ebony that the forest gives us" - Bob Taylor

Siglo Tonewoods Project

Koa acacia populations have also suffered severe losses over the last 20 years. Unsustainable forestry as well as overexploitation led to a decline that can only be stopped by proactive action and reforestation. Therefore, Taylor Guitars together with Pacific Rim Tonewoods founded the Siglo Tonewoods project, which aims to rebuild the Hawaiian virgin forest. This is a large cultivation area for koa acacia and other species, which allows the use of koa wood on a controlled scale.
