As part of Taylor’s American Dream series, the AD17e Blacktop is a unique and remarkably vibrant instrument, both visually and sonically! The solid spruce top is finished in matte black which contrasts beautifully with the natural-finished solid ovangkol back and sides. features a solid spruce top paired with solid ovangkol back and sides, active ES2 electronics, chamfered body edges, and matte Blacktop finish and natural back and sides to create a unique, throwback, understated aesthetic. Guitar ships in a lightweight and super sturdy Aerocase.

Sharing the same name as the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream series is a welcome addition, offering incredible innovation and craftsmanship that has been a Taylor trademark since day one! These amazing new models feature all solid woods, award winning V class bracing, and deliver an incredibly rich and diverse voice in the grand pacific body shape. The AD17e Blacktop combines the traditional spruce top with ovangkol back and sides, creating a strong low end bass response and clear top end like rosewood but with a stronger midrange push.
