The Farida SD-58 is an acoustic guitar that is of absolute premium quality. Designed using a blend of solid, durable and attractive tonewoods, it is guaranteed to be a real joy to play and to hear. This classic dreadnought style acoustic has a truly eye-catching appearance with some elegant appointments that make it stand out among similar value guitars. The SD-58 is forthrightly one of the most impressive models to hail from the new Farida flagship Soundboard series.
The SD-58 by Farida takes on the conventional and paradigmatic dreadnought body style, a shape that is instantly recognisable and revered by guitarists all over. The dreadnought remains to be one of the most popular types of acoustic guitar, enjoyed by fingerstyle players and strummers alike, thanks to its ability to produce a well-balanced, versatile timbre.
Solid Carpathian is elected for the body top, a type of European spruce tonewood which gives the SD-58 a rich, vintage acoustic sound with ample volume. This beautiful soundboard is partnered with solid African rosewood which makes up the back and sides of the SD-58, leading to a wide range of harmonies whilst it also has a very sturdy construction to ensure it will withstand the test of time.
The SD-58 is fitted with a smooth, mahogany neck with a scale length of 650mm allowing for a comfortable playing feel in your hand. The slick neck is accompanied by an ebony fingerboard, a dense wood which offers a sumptuous playing surface beneath your fingertips as you effortlessly shift up and down the frets. Circular inlays adorn the frets to guide you, while a beautiful “F” inlay decorates the 12th fret.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Farida have employed a rosewood bridge to maintain a strong connection between the body and strings which in turn improves the sustain and tone of the SD-35, whether fingerpicking or strumming. The headstock is fitted with Farida original high precision machine head tuners, articulately upholding tuning integrity with precision.
The warm, Sunburst finish of the SD-58 is further complemented by a combination of abalone, maple, rosewood and blackwood binding, as well as a mahogany, abalone and spalted maple soundhole rosette, both adding a stunning touch to the guitar’s visual aesthetic.
A guitar of this calibre and quality must be properly and carefully looked after for years to come to ensure it is kept in the best possible condition. To help you to do this, Farida include a guitar case for added protection.
