Description

Details

The Farida CT-36 electric guitar in see-through red is a superb model that delivers the ultimate in tonal versatility in the CT Series. Packing a powerful pair of humbuckers with coil-tapping capabilities, you'll never be short of options, giving you the tools to unleash your creative side.

In order to make this CT-36 as comfortable to play as possible, the body has been crafted with delicate curves that enable the body to rest snugly against yours as you play. The unique double-cutaway profile allows easy access to all areas of the neck and fingerboard, giving you total freedom as you perform. The bevelled edges mean that for calm and measured passages, your picking arm can rest in comfort. Then when things pick-up and you want to play with greater tenacity, you can manoeuvre without impedance.

Farida has chosen sumptuous-sounding mahogany as the tonewood of choice for the CT-36, giving the guitar rich and complex timbre with fantastic emphasis on the mid to low-end tones, whilst retaining clean and clear upper mids and highs. Though mahogany can be a dense wood - giving your tone superb sustain -, Farida has shaped the CT-36 to play as freely as anyone could wish for.

Fast-Playing Neck

Fitted to the body is a supple and supportive maple neck, shaped to a slim profile to guarantee a fast-playing feel. Paired with the neck is a rich ebony fingerboard, home to 22-frets that have are adorned with clay dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The maple and ebony combination guarantees that you'll never want to put this beauty down once you start playing.

Versatile Electronics

Farida has equipped the CT-36 with a pair of Alnico-powered humbucking pickups, one each in the neck and bridge positions respectively. If it's smooth warmth that you're after, then these sublime humbuckers are everything you could want - and then some. With individual volume controls for each one at your disposal, and a three-way pickup selector switch, you can bend and shape the tone to your will. But Farida haven't stopped there!

Each pickup is also equipped with an individual tone pot, giving you greater control over the EQ of each pickup to emphasise low frequencies through to highs. Both tone pots have push/pull coil-taps, which allow you to split the coils of each or both pickups to pull grittier single-coil tones from each - significantly expanding the tonal palette you can play with. Ultimate tonal and creative control is at your fingertips.

Reliable Hardware

Farida has ensured that the feel of the CT-36 is responsive, as well as remaining reliable throughout each and every performance. Kluson nickel tuning machines maintain tuning integrity, whilst the fixed bridge keeps strings securely anchored for accurate intonation.

The Farida CT-36 electric guitar in see-through red has it all: looks, tones, flexibility, and plays like a dream. Farida has even included a soft gig-bag for you to get out and play as soon as it arrives. What more could you want?

Customer Reviews
No reason NOT to have one!
Posted on 07/10/2016 by Vagrant I've had this guitar for nearly a week now, which I bought as a temporary replacement for a MIM telecaster that had developed a fault. I've spent about 40-hours on it so far, so I think that's enough time for a review.
I've had a huge range of guitars, and set up pretty much every brand in my work as a technician, and I have to say I cannot fault this guitar.
Out of the box the setup was great - I didn't have to file the nut or adjust the truss rod or the bridge at all. The action is down at 1.5mm low E and 1.1mm high e with no fret buzz. The general build quality is excellent, all screws nice and tight with none stripped. The body is made from two pieces of bookmatched mahogany (I don't know if that's just good luck, but I'm pleased!), and the ebony fretboard is loooovely. The neck is slim, but no slimmer than any Squier Classic Vibe I've tried, and I've actually found it very easy to move round on with its flatter profile.
The electronics have really surprised me (I usually rip the pots straight out and replace with CTS), really good sound from the factory fitted components, and I'll be leaving them in for the time being.
The humbuckers are great, really meaty, right up in your face when driven but very bluesy when dialled back. If the guitar ever bites the dust I'm keeping the buckers, they're the pickup equivalent of Grace Slick's voice!

All in all I'm over-impressed... I'm not replacing or repairing my MIM telecaster, instead I'm using the money to buy the single-coil version of this and another amp (I'll still have money left over!). I was a bit of a headstock snob, but this Farida has turned me. This all sounds a bit gushing, but I'd be happy if I'd paid £400-£500 for this guitar, so at this price it's just ridiculously good. Get one!
