Wechter Grand Auditorium Elite Acoustic Guitar with Hardshell Case

$899.00 MSRP


$679.97 sale price at Sweetwater.com



The August Sweetwater giveaway is finger-pickin’ good!

The Wechter Grand Auditorium Elite acoustic guitar features a spruce top and rosewood fingerboard with a rosewood back and sides. It has a nice cutaway design for easy access to the higher frets and its big body gets a full, rich sound.

This axe has a built-in Fishman Sonicore Pickup with volume control, bass, mid and treble control. There is also a brilliance control for additional tone shaping, a phase switch, a notch filter for feedback control, an onboard tuner (really cool!), flip open access for 9 volt battery and dual output jacks – ¼” plus XLR.

This guitar has been personally certified by Abraham Wechter who has been designing and building guitars for over 30 years. He was a model-maker and designer for Gibson guitars and has made guitars for John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, B.B. King, and Steve Howe to name a few and has earned a reputation as one of the world’s finest guitar designers.

This guitar comes well protected in a beautiful hardshell case with a nice crushed velvet style velour lining.

Abe’s expertise and care really show on this guitar, it sounds rich and full
And is a pleasure to play. Now I’m gonna go write a song with it before it finds a new owner. :)

Special Message for Non-US Members

We deeply regret that we cannot ship contest prizes outside the U.S.

Customs, tariffs, and shipping prevent merchandise from being shipped reasonably between countries.

That is the reason why U.S. music stores like www.sweetwater.com cannot sell to musicians in other countries, even as close as Canada.

We originally intended this contest to be run by Ren in the U.K. but we found that just shipping him the gear was so problematic that it would cost more than the contest itself.

Please accept our apologies for making this a U.S. only contest.

This Wechter Grand Auditorium Elite Acoustic Guitar is more than I could ever ask for in a guitar. I have more than plenty acoustic and electric guitars, but there is always room for one more guitar. Maybe I would just give it away too. It sounds great and has nice features. I couldn't afford to buy one. Then again, it doesn't cost to look and listen to a great guitar.

I really like the sound of this and an upgrade to an electric acoustic would be great. Hope whoever wins it, enjoys it.
