2021 Auden Artist Series Emily Rose – £1199
NEW ARRIVAL Auden guitars are steadily gaining a great reputation for high quality acoustics at an affordable price. They import the expertly built wooden shell of a guitar, from China, then in the UK they’re finished to a very high standard by a team of 9 luthiers. From neck set, fret dressing, to hand finishing. The Emily Rose is Auden’s parlour size model, featuring an AAA Spruce top with 5A exhibition grade Flame Maple back and sides. It has tightly scalloped X bracing which allows the top to resonate more than you’d expect, creating a big, dominant sound. This means the guitar has great definition and detail whin fingerpicked, but strums very well. The guitar is in excellent condition, and plays very comfortably. It has a Brad Clark Supernatural pickup system, giving a clean and natural acoustic sound at all volumes. The guitar comes in it’s original deluxe hard case.
