The Merida DG-20FOGACES is a fantastic electro acoustic guitar hailing from the Merida Diana series. Named after the Roman temple of Diana based in Merida City, this range of guitars have a solid build and deliver a bright, full-bodied voice. The Diana temple resisted the 1755 earthquake thanks to its robust build, and the DG-20FOGACES is built to withstand years of playing.
The Merida DG-20FOGACES has a grand auditorium style body shape with a single cutaway in the body, enabling you to reach the upper frets with ease. The body top is constructed from solid Sitka spruce wood which is known for its qualities in providing great sound projection that feels bright in timbre. Laminated flamed ovangkol make up the back and sides of the guitar. This is a sustainable tonewood which offers somewhat similar sound characteristics as pau ferro, but it gives you a very well-balanced range of tones which makes this guitar a total all-rounder.
A mahogany neck is securely fitted to the body of the Merida DG-20FOGACES and has a smooth playing feel in your hand as you make your way along. The neck is accompanied by a 20-fret pau ferro fingerboard which does not have inlays, giving you a clean set of frets to play on.
The bright and sweet classical tones of the Diana DG-20FOGACES guitar can be enhanced by plugging into an amplifier, thanks to its onboard Merida / Fishman ISY201 preamp. With Volume, Tone shaping and Phase controls, this preamp allows you to contour your sound to suit your playing style, while it also clearly means that you can play through an amp for a louder output.
As per its Merida relatives, the Diana DG-20FOGACES has an original two wood tone bridge which is influenced by the Acueducto de los Milagros, a Roman aqueduct bridge which was constructed in Merida from just two different materials. This two wood tone bridge holds a strong connection between the body and the strings with increased sustain.
The Merida Diana DG-20FOGACES Electro Acoustic Guitar is a superbly built model which includes an array of top quality features often found on higher end models but brought to you at a more affordable price.
