The Farida D12CE is one of the brand’s most popular models, and it’s easy to see why. Based on a classic Dreadnought body shape, it offers very balanced all-round performance. In terms of size, the dreadnought is not as big, and unwieldy as a jumbo, but still provides ample power and projection. Most players will find a dreadnought comfortable to play (unlike some guitar shapes).
Tonally, whilst this type of body may sacrifice some of the lowest frequencies that bigger bodied guitars produce, this results in a very balanced tone, well suited to a wide variety of different guitar playing styles, from strumming, to finger-style and everything between.
Here, the D12CE’s body is made with a classic tonewood combination. The top is made from laminated Sitka spruce, with laminated mahogany back and sides. Spruce is renowned for its lively, dynamic character, articulate mids and bright upper frequencies. Mahogany, conversely, has a warm character, with excellent projection and power. Together, they provide a great mix of warmth and sparkle, with expressive dynamics.
For those who gig, or would like to plug it in to an amp or PA, the Farida D12CE is equipped with a Fishman Classic-4 preamp system. This provides a simple, 4-band EQ control, with master volume.
The Farida D12CE is affordable enough to be a first guitar, but is easily of a high enough standard for a far wider range of more experienced players, including those looking for a great, ‘giggable’ instrument that won’t break the bank.
