Taylor's first Grand Pacific model to feature ovangkol back and sides combines the tonewood’s rosewood-like properties (plus a pleasingly full midrange), the GP’s warm, seasoned voice, and the enhanced power, sustain and intonation of our V-Class bracing, making this an incredibly versatile workhorse with expressive musical range. Visually, Taylor's Urban Sienna color treatment adds rich depth to ovangkol’s natural variegation, while understated appointments, including a thin matte finish, emphasize a workmanlike aesthetic.
The impressive AD17 American Dream acoustic is Taylor's first round-shoulder dreadnought to feature back and sides of solid ovangkol, an African tonewood that shares rosewood's warmth and brilliance with additional presence in the midrange! Topped with solid spruce, the AD17 serves up a blend of sparkle and clean low-end power, enhanced by V-Class bracing for greater volume, longer sustain, and a more in-tune sound. That seasoned, vintage-hued tone is reflected in this model's strikingly classic look, with a natural top and a deep Urban Sienna color treatment for the ovangkol back and sides.
Minimally decorated but finely crafted, the AD17 also features chamfered body edges, stained spruce edge trim, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, and a faux tortoiseshell pickguard. The 2.0 mil-thick matte body finish minimizes damping for unfettered resonance. It ships in a Taylor AeroCase.
