The Merida T-5 belongs to the Trajan Series, named after the Roman Emperor, and evokes the characteristics of this poignant figure of the past; being both powerful and dominant with it’s combination of a spruce top and mahogany back & sides.

Beautiful to look at, as well as to play, Merida have made sure that the aesthetics of both wood types used to construct the body of the Merida Trajan T5 are shown to full effect, with the brightness of the spruce offset nicely by the dark hue of the mahogany. Mahogany is used for the neck also, with dark aesthetics continuing with the addition of a pau ferro fingerboard and a unique dark fronted headstock, brandishing the Merida ‘M’.

Tonally the Merida Trajan T5 sounds great with spruce offering up a clear, loud and bright tone and the mahogany back & sides accentuating this further, as well as bringing the mid range out a little more, so you don’t have to play hard to be heard. Depending on whether you like a snappier sound or a punchy tone, just by changing the guitar strings you will be able to alter the tone.

The Trajan T5 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.

The Merida Trajan T5 is a sumptuous classical guitar which delivers an amazing sound with plenty of volume at an incredibly economical price which any guitarist can take advantage of.

Posted on 10/08/2019 by Had this guitar for seven months now and it has been wonderful for me, as a complete beginner. I really feel I am making progress learning the instrument, albeit all from books and without a proper teacher. Easy to tune and doesn't hurt my fingers. Very happy, even though I paid £20 more than the current price!
Posted on 12/02/2019 by Mellow sound, looks better than the photos and feels a quality guitar. Great value for money. Stays in tune. I would recommend this guitar to anyone.
Posted on 18/10/2016 by Just got my Merida Trajan T5:) It's beautiful. Packaged well and got it in 2 days. Simply this is my new favourite guitar, plays like a dream and the sound is warming and inspiring. Not sure if it's true about this guitar being discontinued but if it is I highly recommend it, only a few left.
Posted on 31/07/2015 by An absolute bargain at the sale price of £129. This guitar has an extremely rich warm tone, looks and feels great. Grab one whilst you can as I believe their to be discontinued at Dawsons.
Posted on 18/11/2014 by I paid £149 for this amazing guitar and mark my words it is unbelievable, I am a player of 35 or more years and also teach as my main job, I will do whatever is in my power to persuade students to spend any money they have for a guitar on this little gem.........

I have many Classical Guitar's including a Top Notch Prundencio Saez, Alhambra's etc and this will take pride of place among them....... It play's like a dream, sounds fantastic and look better than any pictures you'll find on the net. I would have been equally as happy if i'd have paid £400 or more for this.
Posted on 10/05/2014 by This instrument was given to me as a gift from my students. Although the thoughtfulness and generosity was much appreciated, I didn't think for a minute that I'd ever be able to actually play this guitar. Boy was I wrong! This instrument rivals my much more expensive Córdoba. The sound, setup, fit and finish are unparalleled in its price range. The clarity and even sound surprised me and continue to amaze and please me each and every time I pick up this instrument.

I have suggested it to dozens of students and am strongly suggesting that anyone in the market for a classical check this company's offerings. I've since purchased their T25. It's an all solid cedar top with mahogany back and sides. The projection is nothing short of amazing and I truly love it!

Posted on 06/04/2014 by For £199 (As of when I purchased it) and from a relatively unknown company, I really wasn't expecting much. That was, until I played it! I also own an Alvares AC70. Comparing the two, I prefer my Merida. It stays in tune for longer, it's got beautiful sparkling treble and thundering bass if needs be. I play with a large group of woodwind instruments and need to remain in the forefront of the mix, which this guitar has no problem doing. I recommend a Fishman SBT-C pickup if you're planning to play any concert halls etc. In all, a beautifully made instrument that I wouldn't hesitate to purchase for £350, let alone the current £150 price.
