Auden guitars offer a superb range of bench-grade instruments which offer amazing value compared when seen alongside some of the more established acoustic brands with eye-watering price tags. Next year's "Echoes Of Our Times" tour with Shakin' Stevens will require me to take out an arsenal of guitars, covering the varied styles now demanded by the new material as well as the established back catalogue of Shaky. As well as 2-3 electric guitars I'll be using a range of acoustics as well dobro and baritone in various tunings.
I'm therefore very grateful to Doug Sparkes and his great team of luthiers at Auden for their support for the forthcoming tour. I'll be using the Colton 12 string and Edgar Baritone amongst others. Not only are Auden great guitars run by lovely people who really know their stuff, but they're on the doorstep, and make great tea (chocolate biscuits too!)
If you're looking for a quality acoustic and superb value Auden have to be on your shortlist.
