The Merida Diana DG15-FOGACES Electro Acoustic Guitar combines a grand auditorium body shape with a solid cedar top, flamed ovangkol back & sides, and a Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system. Although its down to the player’s own opinion, the Merida Diana DG15-FOGACES guitar’s shape; a grand auditorium, is generally considered to be comfortable to play, especially when sitting down, due to a waist that is thinner than that of a standard dreadnought. This body shape is teamed up with a cutaway, to give easy access to the upper frets, which is even more of a feature in this style of body, as its generally suited to fingerpickers, though it also crosses quite happily into strumming styles.

Matched to the purpose of the guitar the Merida DG15-FOGACES features a solid cedar top, which, with its quick response, is a favourite amongst finger style players. Tonally the cedar offers a warm, balanced sound. The ovangkol is tonally and visually very similar to rosewood. The main difference being a range-shift, with ovangkol offering a little less in the bass register in exchange for a more active mid-range.

Joining the specially selected body woods of the Merida Diana DG 15-FOGACES Acoustic Guitar is a mahogany neck topped by a rosewood fingerboard.

The Merida Diana DG15-FOGACES is set up perfectly with a set of tuners crafted by Der Jung, whose fifty years of manufacturing guitar machine heads sees them being relied on by Yamaha, among other big names.

Allowing you to amplify your sound without tainting your tone the Merida Diana DG15-FOGACES Electro Acoustic has been outfitted with a Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system.

In addition to giving you the capability to hook up to an amp the Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system is also set up with a number of useful features. From the guitar you can control Master volume, Treble, and Bass, along with having a Phase Switch. There is also a built-in tuner, with LED indicator.

Posted on 23/03/2016 by Richard After 10 years of strumming around on the same old Crafter I'd had since I was 14, I decided it was time for an upgrade. I set myself a budget of around £500 and decided I was going to aim for high quality electro-acoustic. Such a category was rife with competition; I was inundated by Tanglewood's, Takamine, Faiths, Martin and Taylors.

I've always fancied myself a Taylor after seeing Coheed and Cambria play them at acoustic shows and I've always fancied a Martin after seeing Mikael Akerfeldt play one. Despite all the higher values I may espouse, I am a sucker for brands!

How surprised I was then when I found my eye drawn towards the Merida Diana DG15. Aesthetically it is stunning and seemed far superior in build quality and attention to detail to the middle-ranges of the above high-end brands. Review wise there was little to go on but I couldn't get it out of my head. Several times I nearly buckled and changed my mind. My brain was whispering sensible things like "You don't want to spend that much money on a guitar you've never picked up" and "Why not go for the Faith, that comes with a hardcase". But at the end of it all, I couldn't help it. I'd set my eyes on the Merida and a Merida would be what I was going to have.

It arrived yesterday with little fanfare (quick delivery and good service I might add). I opened the box and there it was. At first I was actually a little underwhelmed. At the end of the day, a guitar is a guitar and it wasn't quite the Smaug's golden hoard I'd built it up to be in my head. But then I picked it up and gave it a strum. I took in the tone of the wood, gazed at the wonderful tuners and attention to detail on the binding.

I ran upstairs (easy dirty minds), plugged it straight into my amplifier and finally basked in the sound of an electro-acoustic that was built for that purpose. It sounded full and bright and reverberated off the walls. After an hour or two of playing I realized that I had made the right decision.

I can honestly say that I have not played a guitar this well made for under £500. The neck and fretboard took a little bit of getting used to as I was used to playing thin, bound necks on my electrics and my previous acoustic. But the tone is unbelievable and after a while the neck becomes easy to navigate.

10/10 would play again.
Great stuff
Posted on 31/12/2012 by Tom Don't be fooled by the obscurity of the brand; this guitar sounds, feels and looks great. Both acoustically and amplified, the sound is rich and powerful. The attention to detail is of a much higher quality than you would expect considering the price tag; I challenge anyone to find a guitar so meticulously crafted for 400 quid.
