The Merida Trajan T-18 classical guitar is a fine example of beauty in instrument form, which offers outstanding value for money. The heady combination of sumptuous tonewoods alongside impeccable build quality gives the Trajan an enviable tonality and playability, at a price that allows many more guitarists to grab one.
The body has been crafted with meticulous attention to detail, and only the finest quality tonewoods have been employed to guarantee the Merida Trajan T-18 produces a rich timbre. To create a solid, driving mid to low-end character that is filled with warmth and texture, mahogany has been used as the tonewood for the back and sides. Mahogany's dense nature ensures that each and each note is delivered with a generous breathiness. In order to give that big tone the projection it deserves, the top is crafted from solid cedar, which is a highly resonant tonewood that launches sounds with vigour. Not only that, but the cedar cuts through with a crispness that rounds out the top end, cutting through the mahogany to prevent the tone from becoming muddy or over-saturated.
The hardwood neck provides a sturdy and comfortable playing feel, whilst the 18-fret rosewood fingerboard creates a sumptuous playing surface to run your fingers along. Whether you're performing chord transitions or deft finger picking, the neck and fingerboard combination makes it a joyful experience. In keeping with the high level of quality, the tuning machines retain tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout each and every performance.
The Merida Trajan T-18 is a fantastic classical guitar - with a finish that hints at the company's Spanish roots -, plays beautifully, is built to last and sounds brilliant. It doesn't get much better than this.
