Merida A15-DCES Dreadnought Guitar

The A15-DCES acoustic/electric cutaway dreadnought has an amazing bold and balanced tone. The solid Sitka spruce top resonates incredibly well and will continue to improve with time.

At first glance, the Merida A15-DCES looks like so many other quality dreadnought style guitars. However, a closer look will show that this is no ordinary run of the mill dreadnought guitar. The incredible attention to detail is clearly evident throughout. On the inside you'll find clean, neat, scalloped bracing and kurfing. On the outside, all mahogany bindings, inlaid wooden rosette and the headstock is graced with a subtle, yet handsome, inlaid "M".

Its big bold sound is further enhanced by its Graphtech Black Tusq XL nut and saddle and D'Addario EXP 12-52 gauge strings. Tuning is handled by a set of high quality DerJung sealed, adjustable tuning gears and a Fishman/Merida Isys preamp helps make this instrument sound incredible when plugged in!

Lastly, every Merida guitar undergoes a thorough inspection and is then expertly setup in thier Norwalk, Connecticut facility. Fret, neck, nut and saddle adjustments are made so when you receive your guitar it's ready to play right out of the box!

- Dreadnought acoustic electric cutaway with Fishman preamp

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Merida A15-DCES is nothing less than gorgeous!"
Overall: This guitar is indeed made in China but don't let that throw you off. The people who build these guitars are luthiers who know their craft and it is obvious that these guitars are produced in the highest quality both inside and out. Research the company and you will easily find videos and reviews to testify to this. The Merida A15-DCES is beautiful! It is flawless! The sound is full and rich and the sustain on this instrument is incredible! It tunes easy and stays in tune. I am heavy handed when I play and this guitar can handle it with ease. It also sounds great when softly strumming. I was stuck on Taylor and Martin. Well, This is the brand that for me beats out them all. You can't find anything as good or better for the price either. This company is fairly new to the market but they are making their mark for great quality at fair prices. If you love instruments made by folks with the highest standards then check out this company. This particular guitar is extremely impressive and has lead me to look forward to purchasing another model from Merida.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
