Taylor announces new American Dream model, the AD22e

The AD22e offers players all the warm, seasoned tone, workmanlike style and exceptional value of the American Dream Series in a compact, accommodating Grand Concert frame. Featuring all-solid-wood construction and our tone-enhancing V-Class bracing, this model’s mahogany top pairs with sapele back and sides for a rich response with a bold midrange character and clear, pristine highs. The Grand Concert’s 24-⅞” scale length makes for a relaxed, slinky feel that will please fingerstylists and traditional pickers alike, while the hardwood top helps to even out the attack for a more balanced sound all the way down the neck. Chamfered body edges provide an even more intimate feel, while the ultra-thin matte finish preserves the guitar’s performance-forward aesthetic. Other visual details include 4mm dot fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic, black top purfling, a faux-tortoiseshell pickguard and a single-ring rosette. The non-cutaway AD22e includes our ES2 acoustic pickup and ships with a lightweight, durable AeroCase.

So how do you think the AD22e will compare to similar guitars in the same price point? The most obvious comparison being the super popular Martin 000-15M, also a small body mahogany guitar. Watch this video to see how they compare...


The new AD22e is a wonderful small body guitar at a great price point. You can see why it's called the American Dream! Sleek & sexy design, modern appointments, killer tone, user-friendly price, and it's MADE IN THE USA! What more could you want from an acoustic guitar! Nice work, Taylor Guitars!
