The Farida D-52E is an outstanding left-handed electro acoustic dreadnought guitar that has been carefully constructed using an excellent blend of tonewoods to deliver an incredible sound output. Fitted with the fantastic Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend undersaddle pickup, the D-52E can be played through any desired amplifier for a bigger, better sound that will fill the room.
The Farida D-52E is built to the classic, conventional dreadnought body shape, which has been recognised over the years as being one of the most iconic acoustic guitar profiles. It feels ultimately comfortable however you play, and it suits both fingerstyle players and strummers alike due to its versatile, well-balanced range of tones.
Farida have opted for a popular kind of tonewood to construct the body top of the D-52E. Solid Sitka spruce is well-renowned for its ability to provide an acoustic timbre with plenty of volume. The back and sides are made of solid mahogany to accompany the Sitka spruce top, forming a wonderfully articulate sonic partnership for every note and chord that is played.
A smooth mahogany neck is firmly joined to the body of the D-52E to provide a comfortable playing feel in your hand. Aboard the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard that ensures slick, seamless fret transitions as you move up and down the neck. An array of decorative inlays adorn the frets to guide you from one to the next with confidence.
The D-52E is fitted with the superb Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend undersaddle pickup which translates the acoustic timbre with transparency and clarity. The Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend is a combination of two different Fishman preamps merged into one, low-noise onboard preamp. It has a simple interface that is easy to use, including slider controls for Volume, Blend and Phase to help shape your tone to suit your playing needs. The Phase switch is also particularly important in ensuring that any unwanted noise or feedback is entirely reduced for a cleaner output.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
A rosewood bridge is attached at the lower bout of the body of the guitar and it maintains a sturdy connection between the body and strings, improving its sustain and tone. Nickel diecast machine head tuners with Grover buttons are fitted to the headstock to uphold tuning integrity with precision.
A mix of ivory, black and mahogany makes up the body binding while an abalone soundhole rosette also adds a decorative touch to the Aged Cherry Burst finish.
To ensure that the D-52E is kept in the best possible condition for years to come, Farida include a protective case so you can safely store the guitar when not in use, or even take on your travels without having to worry about a thing.
