The Merida Diana DG15-SPOMCES Electro Acoustic Guitar combines an orchestra model (OM) body shape with a solid cedar top, maple back & sides, and a Merida/Fishman Standard Preamp system. Although it's down to the player’s own opinion, the Merida Diana DG15-SPOMCES guitar’s shape; orchestra model, 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-SPOMCES 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, which works in perfect partnership with the spalted maple back & sides, allowing this warmth to stay at the forefront of the guitars tone. As well as looking resplendent with its spalted patterning, the maple does not overly colour the sound of the top, while also bringing its own emphasis to the mid-range and treble, and bringing a fast attack to the Merida Diana DG15-SPOMCES.
Joining the specially selected body woods of the Merida Diana DG 15-SPOMCES Acoustic Guitar is a mahogany neck topped by a pau ferro fingerboard.
