John McQuarrie dropped me a note earlier this year that he was going to be trying out a new body style. Knowing nothing more than "there's a new Northwood in the works", I placed my order within seconds.
And boy am I glad I did—this new Auditorium straddles the open airiness of John's 000 models and the heftier punch of his Mini Jumbos. I feel like this guitar has fatter mids than either of those others, making for a meaty, full tone. This is a welcome addition to the Northwood lineup. You're going to love it.
