The American Dream® Series

Essential guitars. Simple. Versatile. Inspiring.

Premium performance. Exceptional value.


Named after the guitar shop where Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974, the American Dream® Series reflects the principles of innovation and resourcefulness that Taylor is famous for.

Today, we believe making music is more important than ever. And we want to appeal to working musicians at every level. So, we thought, how can we pack all the essential ingredients of a great guitar into a pro-level instrument and make it more accessible?

With the American Dream Series, we’re proud to introduce the lowest-priced solid-wood, US-made guitars with our V-Class bracing and signature playability. These essential, versatile guitars deliver premium performance, while the appointments are streamlined to fit their function. They have everything you need, and nothing you don’t.

V-Class Bracing

Our groundbreaking sonic engine transforms the sound of an acoustic guitar. By putting the top more in tune with the strings, it can produce notes with more power, projection and sustain and more accurate intonation.

The Grand Pacific

Discover how V-Class bracing fueled the design of a new Taylor shape and sound. Inspired by the dreadnoughts used on classic records, we’ve updated that sound to produce a pleasing blend of warmth, power and clarity.
