When it comes to guitars, Farida know how to give more for less. The new J-10CE electro acoustic is a magnificent example of how an outstanding guitar can be made to a high standard of quality, yet offered at an outrageously affordable price. The J-10CE combines the power of a jumbo-shaped body with the sleek accessibility of a cutaway - as seen on the now highly collectible Frank Turner signature model -, giving you the best of both worlds. The J-10CE body lends itself perfectly to strummers who're looking for a big sound, making it an excellent choice for both solo performers and ensemble players. However, the J-10CE is no one-trick pony and responds with the utmost clarity to gentle fingerpicking also.
The back and sides are crafted from laminated mahogany, known for its rich timbre with emphasis on low-end power, and the mids freedom to roam. As it is laminated, this gives it incredible resilience when it comes to handling changes in both temperature and humidity, making it a superb choice for globetrotting guitarists who need a reliable workhorse.
The delightful solid Sitka spruce top - as seen on guitars with considerably higher price tags - is a perfect partner to the deep-sounding mahogany as it provides incredible articulation for the upper frequencies. Thanks to its excellent resonant properties, spruce is an excellent soundboard that projects the tones with elegance and clarity.
The delicate marriage of the maple neck and rosewood fingerboard is a classic combination that has been favoured for decades due to its warmth and sweetness, accentuating the sparkle in the highs and reinforcing the lows, whilst the mids are given plenty of room to burst forth - perfectly complimenting the rapturous tones produced by the body.
The Farida J-10CE is fitted with a Fishman Sonicore pre-amp, which comes complete with volume and tone controls that are tucked discreetly in the soundhole. The Sonicore system amplifies the tone of the guitar as accurately as possible, without adding distortion or colouration to the signal, giving you the ability to play to a larger audience without having to sacrifice on your quality of tone.
The tonewoods have been given an open pore finish, enabling them to resonate and move freely to produce their fullest, most natural sound possible. This also allows the natural finish to be displayed in all its glory.
