Oh my.... Another proud find!  I won't bore you with the background on this page but needless to say if you have followed me over the years you will know my personal recommendations are not made lightly.

An Auden starts life in a small workshop in China which employs just 9 dedicated luthiers.  The Director of Auden Guitars visits regularly (who also happens to be the Owner of Gordon Smith Guitars -  Basically, you could argue these are Gordon Smith acoustics!) to ensure consistent quality but also to ensure working standards, safety and welfare of the workers is top priority. Its a very "human" story and one I am proud to be associated with.

Every Auden guitar utlises hand picked tone woods - picked by Doug  and once completed is fettled in the GS workshop here in the UK

The results are stunning.

I have been so impressed with the Chester I am having 45mm nut options made for me in cutaway & non cutaway - Cedar and spruce - Specifically for my customers.

The Auden Chester is my own personal favorite (if I had to pick one out) due to its fuller size yet clever styling that makes you feel like you are playing a much smaller guitar than you are.

I am told the lower bout is full dreadnought width but the upper bout pinches in giving the guitar a feel of a much smaller guitar.  The result is a wonderful array of tonal options and playing styles that it can accommodate from strumming through to picking.

This model features solid spruce top and AAA matched rosewood back and sides.

If you look at the pictures you will see the exquisite attention to detail and the tone is incredible.
