Details


AD22e
The AD22e offers players all the warm, seasoned tone, workmanlike style and exceptional value of the American Dream Series in a compact, accommodating Grand Concert frame. Featuring all-solid-wood construction and Taylor's tone-enhancing V-Class bracing, this model’s mahogany top pairs with sapele back and sides for a rich response with a bold midrange character and clear, pristine highs. The Grand Concert’s 24-⅞” scale length makes for a relaxed, slinky feel that will please fingerstylists and traditional pickers alike, while the hardwood top helps to even out the attack for a more balanced sound all the way down the neck. Chamfered body edges provide an even more intimate feel, while the ultra-thin matte finish preserves the guitar’s performance-forward aesthetic. Other visual details include 4mm dot fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic, black top purfling, a faux-tortoiseshell pickguard and a single-ring rosette. The non-cutaway AD22e includes our ES2 acoustic pickup and ships with a lightweight, durable AeroCase.

FEATURES

  • Grand Concert Body Shape: A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
  • Tropical Mahogany Top: The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
  • Sapele Back & Sides: One of the best all-around tonewoods there is, sapele will deliver for any playing style.
  • Expression System 2: The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
  • V-Class Bracing: A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
