Description

Details

The Merida Extrema GACE1 Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is the latest steel-strung acoustic from burgeoning luthier Merida Guitars. Combining quality materials, stunning looks and a fantastic price point, these guitars give you huge sounding tone without forcing you to take out a loan.

Solid Spruce Top

Usually, guitars in this price range feature a laminated top and sides to cut costs, which is not the case with the Merida Extrema GACE1. A solid Spruce top with a Natural finish gets you a richness of tone and harmonic complexity, a bright sound, great projection and excellent note definition. Whether you're fingerpicking gently or playing rasgueado, the solid Spruce top will ensure your tone remains resonant and consistent. To complement the solid Spruce top you get a solid Mahogany back and sides that work with the Spruce to enhance sustain and add warmth. An armrest on the upper bout gives you a comfortable platform to pick from, ensuring you can keep playing through the longest performances.

Slim 'C' Shape

The Merida Extrema GACE1 features a Mahogany neck construction, shaped to a slim 'C' profile, hefty enough to give you a good grasp on chords but slim enough to suit players with smaller hands. The man-made Ebony fretboard wood is environmentally friendly whilst retaining all the positive tonal qualities of traditional Ebony, feeling smooth underhand and allowing legato to flow freely and slides to move effortlessly. 20 frets give you plenty of space to experiment, with the single cutaway giving fantastic upper fret access.

Presys Onboard Preamp

A Fishman Presys Onboard Preamp System gives you maximum control, quality and performance in a petite package. The system features Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls alongside a Phase switch that helps you cancel out irritating feedback in a live situation as well as a built-in tuner with an LED display to ensure you're always in tune. The Fishman Sonicore pickup ensures that the glorious natural classical tone is translated accurately and with clarity.

Hard-wearing Hardware

The Merida Extrema GACE1 has die-cast tuning machines with a matt, rubber-feel to ensure you don't slip off the pegs if you're doing a sweaty, mid-gig tuning adjustment. They feel solid in the hand and work tirelessly to ensure tuning stability is upheld. The Bridge is comprised of man-made Ebony and works in conjunction with the bone Nut to ensure your intonation is spot on, no matter where on the neck you're playing.

The Merida Extrema GACE1 Electro Acoustic in Natural is a stunning piece of kit at a tempting price. With premium features and a gorgeous look, this guitar is perfect for those with an interest in classical and flamenco styles. It also does just as well with regular folk and acoustic styles so whether your playing style is Sheeran or Segovia, this guitar will serve you equally well.
