The American Dream® Series
Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream Series embodies the principles of innovation, craftsmanship and resourcefulness they always turn to during challenging times. Facing the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, they pushed themselves to design a new guitar series that responded to the needs of players — something that combined performance and value. These US-made, solid-wood guitars are distilled into the essential elements of premium Taylor performance — featuring V-Class bracing and our signature playability — with simple appointments so they won’t break the bank. The series introduces the lowest-priced US-made, all-solid-wood guitars in the Taylor line.
