The Merida Diana DG-16KOAGS Koa Acoustic Guitar is a beautiful model that combines affordability with a sonically and visually enriching playing experience. With the addition of hardworking appointments, the result is an exceptional model that is perfect for players of all ages and abilities.
Sleek travel body
The Merida DG-16KOAGS is shaped to the diminuitive travel body profile, which gives it a much smaller body than that of a standard dreadnought. The benefits of this body shape are many if you're a younger player - or someone with a shorter playing reach -, as the body shape is exceptionally comfortable to perform with. Whether you're performing at home, on the street, live on the stage, or recording in the studio, the DG-16KOAGS is perfect. Thanks to the smaller body shape, it is also much more convenient to travel with than a larger model.
Don't be fooled by its size though, this guitar doesn't shy away from producing a rich and hearty timbre across a wide dynamic range. The body back and sides are built using laminated koa, which establishes a warm tonal foundation. The use of laminate also gives the wood stability with regard to coping with changes in humidity and temperature - fantastic properties for a travel guitar.
The top is built using solid koa, which possesses highly articulate note definition alongside a generous projection. The highly resonant nature of koa means that a little goes a long way, so from subtle fingerpicking to bombastic strumming you are rewarded with a stunning timbre that is delivered gleefully.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which provides a sturdy and supportive playing feel. The back of the neck has been treated to a matt finish to prevent unwanted tackiness or stickiness from impeding your fretting hand movement. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which offers a sumptuous and comfortable playground for your fingers to explore.
As noted above, the hardware appointments have been chosen and applied to guarantee that the DG-16KOAGS plays like a dream. The Merida branded machines heads uphold tuning integrity with precision, whilst the rosewood bridge helps to optimise intonation and sustain. The glorious natural grain of the koa shines through the protective gloss finish, maximising the visual impact created by the guitar.
Whether you're just starting out, or have many years' of playing experience under your fingers, the Merida DG-16KOAGS offers an outstanding model at a remarkably affordable price. Grab one today and see, feel, hear one for yourself!
