Every once in a while a special instrument comes through, either amazing wood, amazing tone or an outstanding player, this guitar has all three elements.
Intonation is spot on and this guitar is a player. Glowing solid koa top and a hardwood laminate back and sides (koa/maple/koa) bring forth crisp tones. This guitar is soft and clear when picked with fingers but wants you to dig in with a pick to bring out the bright projection you expect from koa. Action is low and this guitar is fun to play. Sporting gorgeous flame koa, tasteful inlays and the top shelf fit and finish you expect from Merida, you'll want to keep this guitar on a stand in the living room just to look at!
