The Merida Diana DG15-FOOMCES Electro Acoustic Guitar combines an orchestra model (OM) body shape with a solid cedar top, flamed ovangkol back & sides, and a Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system. Although its down to the player’s own opinion, the Merida Diana DG15-FOOMCES guitar’s shape; orchestra model, is generally considered to be comfortable to play, especially when sitting down, due to a waist that is thinner than that of a standard dreadnought. This body shape is teamed up with a cutaway, to give easy access to the upper frets, which is even more of a feature in this style of body, as it’s generally suited to fingerpickers, though it also crosses quite happily into strumming styles.
Matched to the purpose of the guitar the Merida DG15-FOOMCES features a solid cedar top, which, with its quick response, is a favourite amongst finger style players. Tonally the cedar offers a warm, balanced sound, which works in perfect partnership with the ovangkol selected for the back & sides, which is tonally and visually very similar to rosewood. The main difference being a range-shift, with ovangkol offering a little less in the bass register in exchange for a more active mid-range.
Joining the specially selected body woods of the Merida Diana DG 15-FOOMCES Acoustic Guitar is a mahogany neck topped by a rosewood fingerboard.
Another notable feature of the Merida DG15-FOOMCES is the inclusion of a Graphtech Black Tusq XL self-lubricating nut. Made from a highly resonant material this precision-engineered nut couples the string’s vibrations to the neck to bring out the richness of every note you play, while the PTFE lubrication impregnated through the nut keeps you from going out of tune. Paired perfectly with this is a set of tuners crafted by Der Jung, whose fifty years of manufacturing guitar machine heads sees them being relied on by Yamaha, amongst other big names.
Allowing you to amplify your sound without tainting your tone the Merida Diana DG15-FOOMCES Electro Acoustic has been outfitted with a Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system.
In addition to giving you the capability to hook up to an amp the Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system is also set up with a number of useful features. From the guitar you can control Master volume, Treble, and Bass, along with having a Phase Switch. There is also a built-in tuner, with LED indicator.
