Last year’s AD22e brought the compact yet full-size Grand Concert experience to the American Dream family, and now we’re adding another tonewood pairing to the mix with the AD12e-SB. This model boasts back and sides of solid walnut and a solid spruce top, with V-Class bracing inside for enhanced volume, sustain and harmony down the neck. Players are sure to appreciate this guitar’s bold midrange character, which offers remarkable note-to-note definition that makes it a perfect choice for fingerstyle players and flatpickers, especially in recording applications. Along with the alluring hand-sprayed sunburst top color treatment, this model is detailed with chamfered edges for additional playing comfort, black top purfling, a black/maple/black rosette, 4mm dot fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic, satin black tuners, a firestripe faux tortoiseshell pickguard and a matte finish. This model is strung with light-gauge D’Addario XS coated phosphor bronze strings.
