American Dream Series



Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream® Series reflects the principles of innovation and resourcefulness that have always helped Taylor get through challenging times.

Facing the global COVID-19 crisis, Taylor found themselves again challenged to invent their way out of a mess. Making music felt more important than ever, and yet they knew many folks would have less to spend on a new guitar. So, they thought, how can we pack all the essential ingredients of a great guitar into a pro-level instrument and make it more affordable?

With the American Dream Series, Taylor is proud to introduce the lowest-priced solid-wood, US-made guitars in the Taylor line. V-Class bracing and their signature playability deliver premium performance, while the appointments were streamlined to fit the function of these guitars. Designed for the times, these guitars have everything you need, and nothing you don’t.


What makes these guitars unique?

  • Chamfered Edges
    • Smoothed edges around the body of the guitars translate into a more comfortable feel for your picking arm.
  • Thin Matte Finish
    • At .002 inches, our thin finish optimizes the acoustic resonance. Visually, it fits the guitar’s elemental aesthetic.
  • Simple Appointments
    • Dot inlays and other distilled detailing reflect our desire to offer players both a great music tool and a great value.
  • Taylor AeroCase™
    • The best of both worlds: all the protection of a hardshell case with material construction that’s a fraction of the weight.
