Add to Cart
All you need is love, and this guitar.
The American Dream is alive and well at the Upper Bout. Taylor's AD17 features all solid-wood construction at a price you can't refuse! The AD features solid Ovangkol back and sides which really compliments it's Grand Pacific round-shoulder dreadnought body. Ovangkol is an African tonewood that shares rosewood’s warmth and brilliance with additional presence in the midrange. A classic pairing with it's Spruce top adds top-end sparkle and a clear concise bass response further enhanced by it's V-Class bracing for even more volume and sustain. With minimalist style appointments, the AD17 also features chamfered body edges, a stained spruce edge trim, a three-ring rosette in Hawaiian koa, and a faux tortoiseshell pickguard. The 2.0 mil-thick matte body finish minimizes damping for unfettered resonance. It includes a Taylor AeroCase.

This is a BRAND NEW instrument that has been inspected for quality assurance and professionally set up by our luthiers here at The Upper Bout. If you have any questions regarding this instrument feel free to visit us in-store or give us a call at (217) 607-8132.
