Product information - Taylor American Dream AD22e

Fully solid acoustic guitar in Grand Concert size including Aerocase

The Taylor American Dream AD22e at a glance:

  • Electro-acoustic acoustic guitar
  • Grand Concert construction with 632 mm scale length
  • Solid tonewoods
  • Mahogany top and Sapele body
  • V-Class bracing
  • Mahogany neck with eucalyptus fingerboard and 20 frets
  • Bridge inlay and nut made of GraphTech TUSQ
  • Die-cast tuners
  • Taylor Expression System 2
  • Including Taylor Aerocase

The Taylor American Dream AD22e is one of the basic models of Taylor guitars manufactured in the USA. These are made of solid tonewoods and thus produce a powerful and balanced sound. Due to its shape, the compact Grand Concert is excellent for Pickings and light strumming and convinces with a very mid-range and warm tone. In addition, the flat neck is easy and comfortable to grip in all 20 frets, so that even complicated fingerings can be mastered comfortably. Thanks to Taylor 's own Expression System 2, the instrument is stage-ready and produces a very natural sound even when amplified. A sturdy Taylor Aerocase is included in delivery.

Construction and woods

Since the construction consists of a mahogany top on a body made of sapele, the acoustic guitar produces a very soothing sound that is especially pronounced in the midrange frequencies. The lightweight construction and the built-in V-Class bracing allow for a fast response as well as a long-lasting and clean tone. Therefore, especially Pickings come out particularly well. The flat mahogany neck is equipped with a eucalyptus fingerboard.

Hardware and design

Both the bridge inlay and the nut are made of GraphTech TUSQ, so the AD22e intonates cleanly over the entire scale length of 632 mm. Solid die-cast tuners are inserted into the headstock, guaranteeing easy tuning of the 6 steel strings and obliging operation. Visually, the rather plain instrument is enhanced by dot inlays, a single ring soundhole rosette and a tortoise pickguard.

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 jet-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.
