This Cole Clark CCAN2EC-BLBL AN 2 Series Australian Blackwood Acoustic-Electric Guitar features classical construction with innovative design and manufacturing techniques to produce a lighter, stronger, unique guitar with a natural amplified sound.

Unique Construction

Cole Clark steel string acoustic guitars are the only main stream acoustic to use a Spanish heel or integral neck construction. This means the neck is glued to the face along with the sides and the back so the neck is one piece all the way to the sound hole. On other guitars, the body is made then the neck attached, mostly with a bolt or dovetail joint. Due to Cole Clark's method, the sound is unique. Cole Clark also has a carved top and back and uses a ridge system to join the sides to the top and back instead of kerfing.

Natural Pickup

Aimed at finding a more natural tone when amplified and eliminating piezo "quack," Cole Clark pickups comprise different elements that only hear certain frequencies which they're best equipped to handle. This is done using a combination of 6 loaded piezos under the saddle for bottom end, a face sensor that can be blended in to hear frequencies in the mid to high range (350 Hz maximum crossover) and a condenser microphone shelved to hear only extreme highs.

Australian Blackwood Top

Cole Clark guitars are all solid timber using mostly native Australian tone woods that are largely sustainable. Australian Blackwood is the stiffest timber Cole Clark makes tops out of. It has read more a character all of its own, quite like Koa as it is a very close cousin. It is normally dark brown and grainy but can vary. It is native to Australia and sourced from Tasmania or Victoria.
