The Marina MR-06CE adds a pre-amp and cutaway equipped model to the new range of Grand Auditorium guitars
The Marina MR-06CE is another model in the new Marina by Farida range of guitars. Farida have been building guitars for some the music world’s most prestigious brands for decades, but only relatively recently has produced guitars under their own brand. These guitars are of astonishing quality, with specifications that you’d expect to see on instruments with much higher prices. Marina is the company’s more affordable sister brand, encompassing a range of acoustic guitars at affordable prices, but still constructed to impeccable standards. The new Marina MR-06CE is a new, Grand Auditorium model, featuring an onboard pre-amp and a cutaway body…
The affordable performer’s guitar
The Marina MR-06CE is similar in many ways to the MR-09 mentioned in this blog last week. The body is also constructed with a solid spruce top, and mahogany rotary back and sides, and is a mid-sized, grand auditorium body just like its sibling. This size and style of body is renowned for providing excellent note definition and clarity, whilst providing a full and balanced tone. In short, this is equally at home whether strumming or picking. The MR-06CE adds features a cutaway, for easy access to the upper frets, which compliments the slim waist and ample curves of the guitar nicely.
The Marina MR-06CE ‘s neck is made of mahogany, with a sonokelin fingerboard. Like the other models in the range, this is a slim profile design for easy and comfortable playability.
For those who use their acoustic guitar for performances in bigger venues than is practical for a solely acoustic guitar, MR-06CE is equipped with an Elan-IV on board preamp. This natural sounding preamp also provides a 3-band EQ and presence control, to ensure a great amplified tone.
Here are the Marina MR-06CE ‘s key features:
- Grand Auditorium body style – with cutaway, delivers excellent note definition and clarity
- Solid Spruce top – sweet, sustaining tone
- Mahogany Rotary back and sides – adds warmth, with tight, focused bass and projection
- Mahogany neck – with sonokelin fingerboard
- On-board pre-amp – Elan-IV pre-amp with EQ and presence control, for excellent amplified tones
- Satin finish
The Marina MR-06CE continues very high standards set by the other marina models in the range, which is no bad thing at all. Those looking for a versatile acoustic guitar for all styles, at a price that is a snip need look no further.
