Sustainably Sourced Tonewoods and an Industry Leading Preamp System Make This Acoustic/Electric an Industry Leader
The Cole Clark AN2EC-RDBLSB Angel 2 EC acoustic electric features a single cutaway, internally carved, Grand Auditorium style body with a Redwood top and 3-piece Blackwood back and sides that deliver a sound that is bright and dynamic enough to really cut through the mix in the studio or on stage. The 3-piece back and headstock, combined with the beautiful white color of the Satin Box fingerboard really complements the Redwood top, giving it an elegant look to match its rich and versatile sound.
The neck is made from Queensland Maple with a Satin Box fretboard that looks and plays like Maple but has a tone that is similar to Rosewood or Ebony and features gorgeous timber snowflake inlays and a natural satin finish that is smooth and buttery, a real pleasure to play. The Satin Box used for the fingerboard is not from a full size tree but is actually from a large shrub not quite big enough for building but is great for fingerboards, backs and sides.
The electronics in this Australian made Cole Clark ANGEL 2 feature the innovative Cole Clark 3-way preamp system which is designed to capture all of the frequencies emitted by the guitar and blend them into the most natural acoustic/electric sound on the market today. The system uses a unique face sensor with a piezo pickup and a condenser mic with a patented blend control that allows you to dial in the exact tone you are looking for. Each element of the 3-way preamp system is designed to hear only specific frequencies which allows you to play on any amp without feedback or annoying hum even at stage volume.
The hardware includes a Blackwood bridge, Graph Tech Tusq nut and saddle and Grover Tuning Machines, guaranteeing excellent intonation and great tuning stability. Comes with a matching Cole Clark hard shell case.
