The Wechter 5712c Grand Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a solid spruce top with scalloped braces and Indian rosewood back and sides, and an abalone rosette. The grand auditorium body style produces a rich tone and well balanced tone. The neck has extreme low action making the 5712c a pleasure to play and the cutaway body gives maximum fingerboard access. Attention to detail and fine craftsmanship set Wechter guitars apart.
All Wechter guitars undergo a meticulous final setup utilizing their Piek Pro System where they install brand new premium quality coated light gauge strings, adjust the action, adjust the nut, trussrod, saddle, file frets if necessary, clean the fingerboard and bridge, polish and repack - every guitar, every time, so that Wechter knows you are getting a guitar that will play the best right out of the box. All Wechter guitars have a lifetime warranty.
The 5712c Grand Auditorium Cutaway utilizes the Schertler Bluestick Amplification for Acoustic Guitar. This system uses a Schertler Bluestick pickup under the saddle and a special onboard active preamp built exclusively for Wechter Guitars. The preamp mounts on the inside of the guitar at the output jack and runs on a 9-volt battery, which is mounted inside the guitar on the headblock.
Gain and tone controls are discreetly located at the edge of the soundhole. The tone controls are active boost and cut for both bass and treble. There are no holes in the side of the guitar for controls, only a single hole in the tailblock for a standard 1/4" output jack.
