Taylor AD27e Flametop
Just as the Grand Pacific body shape introduced a new kind of seasoned tone to the Taylor line, the AD27e Flametop brings a new sonic flavor with an earthy, broken-in character. This dreadnought-style guitar boasts back, sides and top of solid Big Leaf maple, with our V-Class bracing under the hood. Combined with nickel bronze strings from D'Addario, the maple construction results in an appealingly rustic sound that's totally distinct from the pristine, vibrant quality that many players associate with Taylor. Visually, the AD27e Flametop offers a rootsy, workmanlike vibe that fits right in with its siblings in the American Dream Series, with maple's beautiful figuring complemented by a dusky Woodsmoke finish and a satin sheen. It's available both with and without ES2 electronics and ships in a lightweight, super-sturdy AeroCase.
"Coming across warmer and more full bodied than you would expect from a maple topped acoustic, this American dream excels for the rhythm player. Punch and midrange define a more aggressive sound, cutting through the mix and standing up to even the biggest jumbos. Oh, and don't forget how cool that sunburst is." Ian, Taylor Guitar's Expert
