The Merida Trajan T-5CES Classical Acoustic Guitar in Black is a high-quality model at an affordable price, and the perfect choice for anyone and everyone from beginners to seasoned pros. Thanks to an excellent combination of performance, playability, richness of tone, and a glorious finish, the T-5CES is perfect for on the stage and studio performances.
Cool classical profile
The Merida Trajan T-5CES is shaped to a sleek classical profile, with a slender body depth and beautifully rounded profile that makes it a joy to rest on your knee and perform with. The body is built using mahogany, a durable tonewood that affords the guitar a stable feel. The tone generated by mahogany favours a mid-range energy infused with a generous warmth.
The soundboard is built using cedar, which favours the warmer side of the timbre, accentuating notes with a subtle articulation. For fingerstyle performances, cedar is a beautiful partner that projects without harshness, tempering your output whilst translating your playing with the utmost grace.
Stable mahogany neck
Mahogany is tasked with carrying out neck duties, fitted to the body to establish a solid connection that feels firm and unyielding in the hand to maximise confidence. The rounded neck profile allows chords to be fretted, and positions to be shifted with ease. Married to the neck is a hardwood fingerboard, which is adorned with side dot position inlays to guide your way discreetly.
Being the electro version of the T5, the Merida T-5CES features Fishman OEM ISY-201 electronics. Along with allowing you to hook up to an amp, this addition gives you a helpful set of controls to alter your tone straight from the guitar with its volume rotary knob, contour and phase switches. There is also a built-in tuner function, with an LED display to show your current tuning and indicators of whether your tuning is sharp or flat. The Merida T-5CES Electro Classical Guitar also differs from the T5 by its cutaway body shape, affording greater access to the upper frets.
The Merida Trajan T-5CES Classical Guitar is home to steadfast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision throughout performances. The bridge anchors each string securely to optimise sustain and stability. At this price, you'd be hard pressed to find an electro-classical guitar that boasts as high a pedigree as the Trajan T-5CES Classical Guitar.
