Description

Details

Merida is one of the most innovative and exciting acoustic guitar makers in the world. Merida looks to combine design ingenuity with classic luthiering. The solid Mahogany top is a testament to Merida's desire to provide high-end features in brilliantly priced guitar. With one eye on the future and the impact on the environment, Merida look to include man-made woods for decorative features like the bridge, rosette and binding.

Solid Mahogany Top

The M1 Mahogany sports a beautiful solid Mahogany top and laminated Mahogany Back and sides. The solid Mahogany top provides a real shimmer to the acoustics sound while the laminate Mahogany back and sides help to balance out the tone. The solid Mahogany top will also evolve over time to produce a more pronounced mid-tone. The Mahogany grain adds a real maturity to the look of the guitar allowing the player to imprint their own personality on the guitar and not the other way around.

Elegant Ebony fingerboard

The M1 Mahogany has a very elegant C profile neck, made from a beautifully matched mahogany. The M1 Mahogany's neck is like silk, hugely playable and sports an Ebony fingerboard with vintage style compact frets. The inlays are Mother of Pearl and are smaller than normal for a more modern look, there are also top dots for easy navigation. The nut is made from bone for the most authentic sound and lasting quality.

Fishman Presys Electronics

The M1 Mahogany is fitted with Fishman Pre-sys pickup. Fishman is the world leader in pickup technology and at this price point it is a steal to have a Fishman powered electro-acoustic. The Pre-sys has a volume, contour and phase control, the phase allows you to have greater control over the open nature of the pickup helping to reduce or cut out any live feedback. The Pre-sys has a built-in tuner with an LED indicator that cuts out sound when in use.

Pro-featured acoustic at an amazing price

The M1 Mahogany is a guitar ahead of its class, the Merida made machine heads offer impressive tuning stability and accuracy and have rubberised tighteners for better grip, useful under the hot lights of a stage. The guitar is strung with D'addario acoustic strings, which are some of the best sounding acoustic strings and have surprising longevity.

Reviews
Posted on 19/10/2019 by My first impression when unboxing this was it's more beautiful than a video or picture can truly portray. Next I thought, it's smaller too...the body makes it very transportable whilst retaining all the necessary playable dimensions- neck/fret sizes etc. It is soooo tasteful and understated- that's where it really packs a punch. The other place is in sound. The neck permits easy access to chords and equipped with the pre amp and tuner makes it all the more versatile. Did I say it was a beauty. The sad part is that I got this in late October as my number one xmas item. Obviously I had to check it was in perfect condition and fully operational. It is now back in its box in my wife's study waiting for December 25th!!!
