Bigleaf spalted maple grand auditorium #19017
Another striking, unique creation from the workbench of luthier Andy Bounsall. This grand auditorium bodied gem is a mid-sized guitar with overall dimensions slightly smaller than a typical dreadnought and with a tighter, more shapely waist. Use of an offset sound hole allows the top to be braced lightly, creating a guitar with a big open sound and a bottom end that you can really dig into. This guitar is well suited for finger picking, strumming, or flat picking and the gorgeous curly, spalted Bigleaf maple back and sides means it looks as remarkable as it sounds.
