Mojo's Music is proud to be Southern Illinois' only Taylor Guitar Showroom dealership.  We have nearly a 20-year history representing Taylor Guitars and bringing the best of what the Team at Taylor has to offer.

This AD27e Flametop (serial number 1208082035) has arrived and is ready to ship to you!  This guitar sounds so cool....sort of the anti-Taylor.  We haven't had a chance to gig this guitar yet but we can imagine it sitting perfectly in the mix with a rock or country band.  It is a new favorite of ours at the store and we can see it becoming a huge success for them.

AD27e Flame Top

A throwback look and sound channels an earthier Taylor vibe

  • Back and Sides: Big Solid Leaf Maple
  • Top: Solid Figured Big Leaf Maple
  • Neck: Hard Rock Maple
  • Fretboard: Eucalyptus
  • Strings: Uncoated D'Addario Nickel Bronze Light (.012-.053)

"Sonically speaking, the most intriguing addition to the line is the AD27e Flametop, an all-maple Grand Pacific that bolsters the American Dream series with a voice unlike anything Taylor has ever offered. In the same way that the Grand Pacific body style marked a notable departure from the modern, high-fidelity sound our guitars have been known for, the Flametop pushes even deeper into that warm and dusky sonic terrain. Collectively, all the individual design decisions Andy made - body style, tonewoods, bracing nuances, string composition - give the AD27e Flametop a uniquely compelling voice within the Taylor line. It's a drier, chunkier, more broken-in sound, or as Andy puts it, 'More lungs, less vocal cords.' Visually, Andy looked to match the AD27e Flametop's sonic personality with a comparable aesthetic. Having a figured maple soundboard certainly sets the stage. He channeled the weathered character of a worn-out pair of boots or jeans with a new, dusky Woodsmoke finish, along with a shaded edgeburst and satin sheen on the top, back, sides and maple neck. Like other American Dream models, the Flametop features chamfered body edges, 4mm dot inlays in Italian acrylic, and onboard ES2 electronics (also available without electronics). The guitar ships in a Taylor AeroCase."
