Comfortable and reliable Grand concert acoustic with ES2 electronics.

The Taylor AD22e American Dream Grand Concert acoustic-electric guitar was designed to combine premium performance with functionality. Named after the shop that birthed Taylor Guitars in 1974, these guitars go back to the basics. Suitable for any type of musical situation, this Taylor Grand Concert features V-Class bracing, solid-wood construction and ES2 electronics to deliver natural acoustic tone when plugged in.

The AD22e American Dream Grand Concert features Taylor's popular Grand Concert body shape, known for its unique sound and comfortable design. Slightly smaller than the Grand Auditorium and yielding controlled overtones, the American Dream acoustic-electric is great for both live performance or recording. Its compact shape, blended with the slightly condensed fret spacing of the 24-7/8” scale length creates a slinky "handfeel" for easier fretting. With the bridge's position near the center of the lower bout, Taylor's Grand Concert guitars are easy to play and have a surprising amount of tonal power and midrange warmth. An AeroCase is also included for optimal protection and portability.

Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn't sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar's tone to come through clearly whether playing acoustically or plugged in. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before while playing plugged in. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, and active bass and treble controls.
