Looking to build an alternative to modern 6 string flattops, Martin Keith took his years' experience working with Joe Veillette's shop and applied it to a synthesis of flattop and archtop design: the Auriole. These are big guitars with a great, balanced tone and crisp articulation. Keith achieves this with a wide fan braced Sitka Spruce top, radial braced Curly Maple back, and a Mahogany neck with carbon fiber core (rendering the neck sturdy and lightweight). Add to that a zero fret on the Katalox fretboard and a fully adjustable neck, courtesy of the included allen key, and you have a robust instrument capable of performing equally well in a variety of applications. The Auriole is definitely a flatpicker's heartthrob.

New Martin Keith Auriole -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Martin's work continues to shake things up with his design features. I'm always happy to have one of his Aurioles in the shop, and this one's another great example of his clear, crisp tones." - Paul Heumiller

"This guitar is unique for a number of reasons. The tone is somewhere between an archtop guitar and a flattop guitar and the artistic use of woods to give it its black and white appearance is new. It is easy to play and after playing it for a bit, I could tell why someone who played jazz in a group with other guitars or other stringed instruments would be drawn to its sound, since it is clear and more defined than an archtop." - Al Petteway
