Founded in 1974, Gordon Smith is the UK’s longest running electric guitar manufacturer. Gordon Smith Guitars have powered some of the world’s most famous bands including the Buzzcocks and the Stone Roses.
Auden Guitars are handcrafted by a small group of highly skilled luthiers using traditional methods and the very finest materials. Precision applied bindings, perfect joints and beautifully dressed frets are the details highlighting the extreme craftsmanship dedicated to every guitar.
