Taylor Guitars has launched a new line of acoustics, the American Dream series.

The new line features three American-built models - the AD17, AD17 Blacktop and AD27 - built with Grand Pacific body shapes and Taylor's trademark V-Class bracing. 

Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics are optional on all three models in the American Dream lineup, which got its name from the guitar shop where Taylor was founded in 1974.
