OVERVIEW

Mahogany and Sitka spruce with natural sounding electronics creates a versatile acoustic-electric.

The Siljan Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar has a high-grade Sitka spruce top with mahogany back and sides. The mahogany provides a warm, round and well-balanced tone that will only continue to improve as time passes. Sitka spruce is a popular spruce, originating from the northern coast of North America. Tonally, it is known for producing a slightly higher output and responds exceptionally well for flat pickers. Grand Auditorium bodies are hugely versatile and work well in a large variety of playing styles.

    Comments about Hagstrom Siljian Grand Auditorium Acoustc-Electric Guitar:

    Hagstrom Siljan Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar (Tobacco burst) arrived at my door a few weeks ago. As I was unpacking it from the foam bag that it was shipped in I could hear a rattling sound. So, I looked inside the soundhole and noticed the battery terminal that was connected to two long wires (+ & -) had slipped out of the battery compartment into the soundhole. All I had to do was to remove the plastic battery compartment which was held in place with two small screws and fish out the terminal and slip it back into the battery housing and attach the compartment to the body again with screws. Once you connect a square battery to the terminal you never have to worry about the terminal slipping into the soundhole again, simply, because the battery is too big for the wire/terminal cut-out. But, if you're going to remove the battery time after time, then, it's a good idea to fill the small cut-out with a small piece of foam or sponge to prevent that problem from happening again, and that's what I did.

    Aside from the above mentioned problem, I found no other problems. And I give my guitars a thorough and close inspection. This guitar is a very pretty and eye catching instrument. The neck has a great feel to it and the chrome tuning keys are of a unique and cool design; they are smooth functioning and keep the strings in tune for a reasonable length of time. Manufacturer says the fretboard and the bridge are made from resonator. I have never heard of a resonator wood, if in fact it is a wood. It could be a synthetic material formulated and designed to look like wood. If that is the case, then they have succeeded. It looks like ebony wood and it has a dark gray or charcoal color to it. However, this wood or wood wannabe looked pretty thirsty. So, I applied some wood furniture lemon oil to it and it absorbed it and now it looks much healthier and darker. I actually like the darker, blackish color because it matches the black surrounding of the Tobacco burst finish. There are no sharp fret ends and the fretboard inlays are different and cool looking and so is the design of the headstock. The binding in front, back, neck and the headstock makes this guitar even prettier and classy looking. The action out of the box was just a bit too low for my playing style so I was hearing a slight fret buzz on some of the frets. I remedied that problem by loosening the truss rod by 1/8 of a turn to increase the neck curvature, therefore, more distance between the strings and the frets.

    I have only one other Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar in my arsenal and it's made by Washburn and it has a solid Cedar top. This one has a solid Sitka Spruce top. Although, they are both Grand Auditorium models, my Washburn has slightly larger dimensions and a deeper depth and no cutaway. Those are the reasons why my Washburn has a better sound projection than this one. The cutaway takes away a big chunk of the sound chamber. The smaller chamber guitars don't produce the low notes as well as the bigger ones. But, this guitar does have a pretty tone, thanks to the solid spruce top.
    My Washburn doesn't have built-in electronics and this one does. And this guitar shines when plugged in, very natural sounding electronics. Remember, if you want natural sounding acoustic guitar sound, then you've got to play it through an acoustic amp, and not through an electric guitar amp. And if you like the boomy sounding low notes, you can get them by adjusting the EQ on board or the EQ settings on your amp, no problem.

    This guitar is the stage performer's dream, flashy looks, more comfortable to hold than a Dreadnought, slim fast neck, good sounding pickup and a built-in tuner.

    I bought mine on sale and I'm very happy to have it. Buy one before the price goes up.

    If measurements are important to you, then here they are:
    Overall length 41-1/2"
    Body length 19-7/8"
    Lower bout 15-3/4"
    Higher bout 12-1/8"
    Waist 9-3/8"
    Sides 3-1/2" at neck heal, 4-5/8" at rear strap button
    Soundhole diameter 4.0"
    Nut width 1-11/16"
    Body fret (14th fret) 2-1/8"

    Comments about Hagstrom Siljian Grand Auditorium Acoustc-Electric Guitar:

    I tried several guitars in this price range and the others did not compare to this one. It has a really great tone and I'm sure it will get even better over time. Haven't plugged it in so I can't comment on the electronics.
    Needed some setup work but plays great now and sounds very good.
