Hailing from the wonderful Merida Diana series of acoustic and classical guitars is the DG-20SPGACES electro acoustic model. The Diana range takes its name from the solidly constructed Roman temple of Diana in Merida city. This temple was strong enough to withstand a vicious earthquake over 250 years ago, and its durability influenced the build of the DG-20SPGACES guitar, with Merida wanting to provide an enduring, robust guitar.
The Diana DG-20SPGACES has a grand auditorium body profile with a single cutaway, enabling easy access to the upper frets when needing to get to the higher notes. The body top is built using the popular choice of solid Sitka spruce, known for its high level of projection and bright acoustic timbre. The back and sides are constructed from laminate spalted maple, which has similar tonal characteristics to rosewood, offering a great acoustic balance.
Firmly joined to the body of the DG-20SPGACES is a mahogany neck, providing a stable, smooth playing feel in your hand. Topping the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard; no inlays are used to decorate the frets, essentially giving you a completely clean surface to play on.
Merida have fitted the Merida / Fishman ISY201 preamp to the DG-20SPGACES guitar, allowing you to plug in and play through any desired amplifier. The preamp has simple to use controls for Volume, Tone shaping and Phase, allowing you to contour your sound to suit your playing style, without compromising on its true acoustic timbre.
Like many of its Merida counterparts, the DG-20SPGACES has an original two wood tone bridge. The reason for it having a double wood construction is that it draws its influence from the Acueducto de los Milagros, a Roman aqueduct bridge which was built in Merida city from just two different materials. The guitar bridge holds an incredibly strong connection between the strings and the body.
The Merida Diana DG-20SPGACES Electro Acoustic Guitar is a well-built model, which includes a myriad of top quality appointments at an economical price for any guitarist to enjoy.
