Taylor is proud to add another compelling model to the American Dream line up of fine acoustic electric guitars. Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream series embodies the principles of innovation and craftsmanship. These amazing models feature all solid woods, award winning V class bracing, and deliver an incredibly rich and diverse voice in the grand concert body shape. The AD12e-SB combines the traditional spruce top with walnut back and sides, creating a full low end bass response and clear top end like rosewood but with a stronger midrange push. The AD12e-SB features a solid spruce top paired with solid walnut back and sides, beautiful sunburst finish on top, V Class bracing, 24 7/8" scale length, active ES2 electronics, chamfered body edges, satin black tuning machines, and a smooth, matte finish. Fingerstyle players and strummers alike will appreciate the comfortable body shape. Guitar ships in a lightweight and super sturdy Aerocase.
