More compact in size than a dreadnought but boasting more volume and projection than a tenor, auditorium acoustic guitars are ideal for recording and live performance purposes. In fact, their mid-range and low end often has them mistaken for guitars with bigger body sizes. If you have a petite body frame and want a guitar that's comfortable to play, an auditorium acoustic guitar is definitely the way to go. And rest assured, this catalog is loaded with choices: from Martin and Breedlove to Recording King and Blueridge, all the most respected guitar manufacturers are here!
Auditorium acoustic guitars are made from a variety of wood types and models for both right-handed and left-handed players are available. Of course, the right one for you will depend on how much you plan to spend and whether you want an acoustic or acoustic-electric model. For a high-quality acoustic under $500, check out the Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-42 000 Acoustic Guitar. Featuring a slim, fast-playing mahogany neck and select, solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, this guitar is easy to play and delivers a very crisp tone that sounds terrific in the studio.
Now, if it's an acoustic-electric auditorium guitar that you want, there are plenty of top sellers here. In fact, Martin has many options, including the affordably-priced X Series 2015 Custom X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric. Combining over 180 years of old-world craftsmanship with cutting-edge technologies, Martin has designed a perfectly-balanced auditorium-sized guitar that looks as beautiful as it sounds. It's made from forest-friendly HPL material, has a strong Stratabond neck, Richlite fingerboard and it's armed with top-notch Fishman electronics to clearly amplify its natural sound.
And those two models aren't even the tip of the iceberg. If you really want to reward yourself with an instrument for your years of dedication to the stage, feast your eyes on some high-end masterpieces like the Breedlove Legacy Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar or the Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 Acoustic Guitar. So enjoy browsing this selection of auditorium acoustic guitars - before you know it, you'll have your hands on an instrument that you'll be proud to show off to the world.
