So this AD17 I'm holding from Taylor is part of their American Dream series, and the American Dream was come up with in last last two years. More specifically, last year, in Taylor's effort to try and build an American guitar all solid wood for under $2,000, and they succeeded greatly at doing this. This guitar is going to be there their Grand Pacific body shape, which is a slope shoulder dreadnought and this is going to feature spruce over open call and open call is a nice substitute for Rosewood. Tonally, very similar to Rosewood, but it's a little bit easier for everybody to source and to and to purchase.
The biggest thing that we're going to see about this guitar, if we look closely, is there's no binding on here. Taylor does a great job of having very nice glue joints, and what they have done is actually outright outside the Purfleet on this guitar. They actually stain the spruce, so it gives you a appearance of having binding, and it doesn't really cheapen the appearance of the guitar.
Very, very nice and also allows them to produce this guitar at a much lower price point. Some of us might be asking, Oh, well, if it doesn't have binding, does that mean that it's a less nice guitar? No, it doesn't, really. All their other binding is doing when there's binding on a guitar is just hiding that glue joint, and Taylor is able to do that actually by staining the outside layer of spruce. So it actually hides it quite well.
We're going to see standard scale length on this guitar. Nice factory, Taylor tuners. This guitar is also offered from Taylor with electronics. This particular one does not have them installed, but we do have one with electronics available as well.
