For sale: Flame birch grand auditorium #18014
Don’t be fooled by the f holes. This isn’t an archtop guitar. It’s a unique flat top. The back and sides of this lovely grand auditorium sized guitar are flame birch with wonderful 3D figure that dances and shimmers in the sunlight. The top is western red cedar in an uncommon dark chocolate colour. Body and f hole bindings are birch. The neck is curly ovangkol (aka shedua), again with striking figure that shimmers in the light. The combination of birch and cedar give this guitar a great balanced tone and the grand auditorium size makes it a perfect all-around guitar, suitable for both strumming and fingerstyle use. A wonderful unique look and a lovely playing guitar. What more could you want?
