AD27e Flametop

6-String | Big Leaf Maple Top | Maple Back and Sides | Hard Rock Maple Neck | Eucalyptus Fretboard | Expression System® 2 Electronics | Non-cutaway | AeroCase

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. It's available both with and without ES2 electronics and ships in a lightweight, super-sturdy AeroCase.

Grand Pacific

This round-shoulder dreadnought delivers a new flavor of warm, rich Taylor tone.

Maple

Revoiced to produce greater warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness

Big Leaf Maple

Though mostly known as a body wood, maple offers a dry, midrange-centric tone profile when used as a soundboard.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Expression System 2
V-Class bracing

V-Class Bracing

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns. 

The American Dream® Series Guitars

Solid Woods. Great Value. Designed at the intersection of craftsmanship, rich acoustic tone and value for everyday musicians, the American Dream Series is Taylor's gateway to the solid-wood, U.S.-made acoustic guitar experience. These models boast all the projection, sustain and tonal depth a player would expect from a Taylor, presented in a thoughtfully distilled form that makes premium craftsmanship accessible to more players. Choose from the warm, seasoned sound of the Grand Pacific dreadnought, the compact and articulate Grand Concert — both voiced with Taylor's tone-enhancing V-Class bracing — or the scaled-down GT, featuring C-Class bracing for extra low-end power. All models featured chamfered body edges to level up the playing comfort, along with slender, easy-playing Taylor necks. With clean, modest appointments to preserve their rootsy look, Taylor's American Dream guitars deliver neo-vintage inspiration for players of all styles.

    Warranty Information

    PROTECT YOUR PRODUCT WITH AN EXTENDED WARRANTY

    • Full Coverage from Date of Purchase
    • 100% Parts and Labor Coverage
    • Includes Accidental Damage
    • Includes Free Shipping
    • Up to 5 Years of Total Coverage

    Bananas has partnered with Consumer Priority Service (CPS) to offer extended warranties for your instruments. Simply add the CPS extended warranty by selecting the option on our product pages.

    Warranty FAQ

    DO I NEED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY?

    Most manufacturers limit their warranty periods to keep their product costs competitive. It should come as no surprise that most problems occur after the manufacturer’s warranty is over. If you are like most consumers, you don't want to deal with the inevitable problems surrounding repairs. Who do you call for service? Are they reliable? Is a handyman capable of performing a long lasting, reliable repair on your instrument?

    Ranked #1 Extended Warranty

    CPS provides top notch warranty protection for your purchases to ensure life and longevity. This means that they care about you and your product long after your purchase has been made. This warranty offers reliable, hassle-free, comprehensive parts and labor protection for your product.

    You Need to Prepare for These Issues Today

    Bananas is an Authorized Consumer Priority Service Dealer. This means that they care about you and your products long after the purchase date. You can easily extend your manufacturer's warranty for a possible total of 5 years from the date of purchase.

    CPS Warranties Offer Reliable Protection for Your Product

    By purchasing a CPS accidental damage plan, you’re guaranteed years of worry free operation from your new product.

    Is a CPS Warranty just an extension of the existing manufacturer’s warranty?

    Actually, it’s an upgrade to your existing manufacturer’s warranty. A CPS Warranty offers benefits that aren’t offered by manufacturers like accidental damage & free shipping to and from the repair facility.

    What’s the difference between a Replacement Plan and Repair Plan?

    A Replacement Plan is available for products under $150. If the product fails, you will receive a replacement through Bananas.

    A Repair Plan is for products over $150 and offers free repair coverage for your product any time during the life of your warranty. If we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it!

    How am I covered?

    For the Replacement Plan, your coverage provides for a one-time replacement of the covered product.

    For the Repair Plan, you are covered for a period of up to five years (depending on which plan you purchase). Benefits include parts and labor for required repairs on your product.

    When does my warranty coverage start?

    Coverage begins on the 31st calendar day from when you purchased your product.

    Can I transfer the Protection Plan to a new owner?

    Yes! CPS Warranties are transferable between owners.

    What if I Need to Return my Product?

    If you return your product, Bananas returns the money you paid for the product protection plan. Depending on how much time has passed since your purchase, CPS may issue a prorated refund.

    Is my product covered if it’s stolen or if I lose it?

    Unfortunately the CPS Warranty does not cover lost or stolen products.

    Is there a service fee?

    Zero dollar service fee for the Replacement Plans and the Repair Plans.
