The American Dream® Series Guitars

Starting at $1,749 USD

Everything You Need. Nothing You Don’t.

The American Dream Series is Taylor's gateway to the world of solid-wood, U.S.-made acoustic guitars. These models boast all the projection, sustain and tonal depth a player would expect from a Taylor, thoughtfully distilled to the essentials of a satisfying playing experience. Choose from the warm, seasoned sound of the Grand Pacific dreadnought, the compact and articulate Grand Concert — both voiced with our tone-enhancing V-Class bracing — or the scaled-down GT, featuring C-Class bracing for extra low-end power. All models feature chamfered body edges to level up the playing comfort, along with slender, easy-playing Taylor necks. With their clean, throwback aesthetics, American Dream Series guitars deliver neo-vintage inspiration for players of all styles.
