The combination of Mahogany and Spruce gives a warm but clearly defined tone. This guitar is a great all-rounder and responds beautifully whether finger-picked or strummed with a plectrum.

Auden guitars are a unique English brand.
100% hand made and I am hoping soon to bring you a video showing you the workshop where the guitars are initially crafted.
These first stages are carried out in Dougs workshop in China - this keeps the cost of production as affordable as possible. All the wood is personally selected by Doug (owner of Auden & Gordon Smith Guitars in the UK).
Once the bodies and necks are complete they are shipped to the Auden workshop in the UK where the hardware is fitted, the nut and bridge are cut, final setup and all the electronics are fitted.
This wonderful collaboration between Dougs workshops provides you a genuine English branded hand made guitar.
The results are simply outstanding.
In the past 12 months Richard & his customers have been so overwelmed by the quality of these guitars that Richard has had a range commissioned for him called the "45 Series". Same guitars but with 45mm nut - recognised by a lovely 45mm logo design on the headstock.
