The Saint Augustine line was created to blend class with top notch construction. Keeping incredible tone and performance being at the forefront. These graceful guitars are the epitome of tone and identity. This Grand Auditorium is the perfect balance of depth and presence. Solid Spruce Top and Mahogany back and sides with new tonal bracing starts the sound experience off just right, then to go the extra mile, Dean added the Ebony fingerboard, Ebony, bridge, and Ebony Rosette for the extra level of class and tonal clarity only Ebony can bring. If you want to plug it in, its loaded with a Fishman Presys+ Preamp.
