Just as the Grand Pacific body shape introduced a new kind of seasoned tone to the Taylor line, the AD27e Flametop brings a new sonic flavor with an earthy, broken-in character. This dreadnought-style guitar boasts back, sides and top of solid Big Leaf maple, with Taylor's V-Class bracing under the hood. Combined with nickel bronze strings from D'Addario, the maple construction results in an appealingly rustic sound that's totally distinct from the pristine, vibrant quality that many players associate with Taylor. Visually, the AD27e Flametop offers a rootsy, workmanlike vibe that fits right in with its siblings in the American Dream Series, with maple's beautiful figuring complemented by a dusky Woodsmoke finish and a satin sheen.

Grand Pacific body style

Built on the sonic engine of V-Class bracing and inspired by classic acoustic guitar recordings, the Grand Pacific is a round-shoulder dreadnought that ushers in a new era of Taylor tone. Thanks to the contours of the shape (especially the wider waist) and the tone-shaping power of V-Class bracing architecture, the notes are rounder and broader, overlapping to create a more blended sound with a warm, seasoned personality.

Big leaf maple body

Though rarely used as a top wood, Big Leaf maple boasts a remarkably distinct voice as a soundboard, serving up a chunky, earthy tone that might remind players of old-school parlor guitars or vintage acoustic recordings. With its fat, woody response, maple translates the player’s unique stylistic tendencies and playing technique into a signature sound for each pair of hands that plays it.

V-class bracing

V-Class bracing is a groundbreaking new Taylor design - a new sonic "engine" - that transforms the way an acoustic guitar top vibrates to dramatically inmprove the sound. A bold departure from traditional X-bracing, V-Class produces notes that are louder, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other.

Ready for the stage

The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness.

Hit the road

Taylor's AeroCase is perfectly matched to provide protection while you transport your guitar between practices, jam sessions and gigs. The AeroCase features a durable, resilient structure made with materials less than one-third the weight of a traditional hardshell guitar case, making it a perfect choice for travel.
