(2022 Guitar World Gold Award)
Crafted at the intersection of solid-wood tone and great value, the AD22e is the first Grand Concert entry in Taylor's American Dream Series of acoustic guitars. Solid sapele back and sides and a mahogany top resonate with a warm, woody voice that's especially focused in the midrange. The hardwood top helps provide balance with a varied attack, while the V-Class bracing articulates the top to produce louder volume and longer sustain. The slightly shorter 24-7/8" scale length and narrower waist offer a pleasingly welcoming feel and strong tonal definition that will inspire fingerstyle players and flatpickers alike. Finished off with clean appointments, the AD22e includes our ES2 pickup and ships with a lightweight, yet super-durable AeroCase.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
One of the best all-around tonewoods there is, sapele will deliver for any playing style.
The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
Expression System® 2
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
Our 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.
