Description

A thundercloud built with Red Cedar and Birdseye Maple, this 2003 Advanced Auditorium from Sheldon Schwartz is an excellent guitar for just about every application. The setup strikes a neat balance for both fingerstyle and flatpicking, and we found that this Advanced Auditorium gobbled up lowered tunings for breakfast.

You're looking at a guitar with a voice to fill rooms with ease, combing the rich and present bass register with fat trebles and a splash of overtones for big-bodied tone and projection. The tip of this tone-iceberg is gorgeous, too: Schwartz trimmed the top in colorfol Mother-of-Pearl which continues seamlessly along the fretboard extension and into the centermost ring of the rosette! Plus a five-ply Mahogany neck and Highlander IP-1 pickup, and the final result is gold for both your ears and eyes.

The bass response is quick and deep. I loved letting the strings ring out; lots of sustain. DADGAD is a great choice for this guitar, but really any tuning is going to sound great.
 
If you think of maple guitars as being thin or bright, think again. This was is dark and full of rich bass tones. It's perfect for strumming, but can be used as a fingerstyle guitar as well. The low end is big and powerful.
