Sheldon Schwartz may just be a miracle worker--the voice of this Advanced Auditorium is seraphic. In pairing Cocobolo Rosewood back and sides with a gorgeous Engelmann Spruce top, Schwartz gave this Grand Auditorium-sized guitar a tonal palette which is rich but controlled, with a great balance across the registers. Flatpickers, rejoice: the Advanced Auditorium responds with resounding projection and clarity. Prefer your fingertips? Fingerstyle accentuates the balance and scope, letting the low-end mellow out and accompany the middle registers in perfect harmony.
Airy overtones in the treles fill out the voice, lending the instrument a sweetness and poise that is matched only by Schartz's appointments, from the figured Curly Maple bindings to the Mother-Of-Pearl and Shell vine inlays across the rosette and at the twelfth fret. Kept in immaculate condition, you won't believe this guitar isn't even a decade old. There are probably brand-new guitars out there with more scratches. Protected by an equally immaculte Ameritage hardshell case, there's no need to worry about the instrument ever getting hurt in your travels.
Combining easy playability, rich tonality, and flawless condition, be prepared to play this Advanced Auditorium for many, many long hours.

Player Reviews:

"I love it when we get some of Sheldon's work in the shop! The man's hands are perfect instruments-- just like his guitars. " - Paul Heumiller

"Great tone and wonderful sustain sets this guitar apart from the crowd. Deep bass tones and sharp trebles characterize this guitar. It responds well to picking and strumming.
"
- Al Petteway
