Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitars are great for players who like to use both flat picks and finger-style playing. The slightly smaller and hourglass shape offers a well defined combination of low, mid and treble frequency ranges which makes this body style the second most popular shaped acoustic guitar.
Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitars were first brought into the market by Taylor guitars. Right in the middle between Grand Concert and Dreadnought bodied acoustic guitars, the grand auditorium offers the best of both worlds. Dreadnoughts are great for flat pickers where Grand Concerts are well suited for finger-style players. If you are looking for a guitar that can suit both strumming and light finger-style picking then you should look into Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitars as they are best suited to deliver well with both picking styles.
