Cole Clark FL2E-12-BLBL Blackwood 12-String Acoustic/Electric Guitar

Product Description
$2,445.00 $3,299.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Please note actual guitar may differ in appearance to stock photo due to variances in the wood grain.

All solid AA-grade Australian blackwood

This is the stiffest timber we make tops out of. It has 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.

  • An acoustic sound in the tradition of an American all Koa guitar
  • For a medium to hard player amplified
  • Best top for a percussive player
  • Handles climate extremes better than the softer timbers.
  • Good low mids
  • Good mid-range punch
  • Good high frequency definition
  • Good for amplifying
  • Signature Cole Clark acoustic sound.

Cole Clark PG3 pickup system

Released in 2022, the PG3’s improved microphone for extreme highs, altered frequency filter between the mic and face sensor and new configuration between the face sensor and bridge pickup delivers our most advanced, dynamic and natural sounding plugged in experience yet.

The concept behind our pickup technology is best explained by comparing it to an audio system. A P.A usually consists of sub woofers, speakers and horns. Each component is designed to hear a range of frequencies they are best equipped to handle, with crossover points for frequencies best heard by the next component. Cole Clark uses the same philosophy, combining a piezo system for the bottom end, a patented face sensor for the mid range and a microphone for the top end.

Under Saddle Piezo

The piezo system utilizes 6 individual piezo elements suspended under the bridge saddle which we believe is the best and most dynamic type of piezo system available.

Face Sensor

We know that the face/top is the most important component to the sound of an acoustic guitar, so it makes sense that we utilize that tone when amplifying the guitar. We do this with our unique face sensor which is specifically designed for the mid range. We use a patented blend control which blends in the amount of face sensor required to go with the piezo sound or to completely replace the piezo in the mid range. This goes a long way in removing the ‘piezo quack’, delivering a more natural tone. With a maximum crossover point of 350hz, the face sensor cannot hear any frequency in it’s feedback zone, instead leaving those frequencies to the under saddle piezo.

Microphone

The third element is a condenser microphone for the top end. This microphone is set well above any frequency zone that could cause it to feed and is purely there to take the ‘ping’ out of the piezo if there is some piezo blended through at full range.

Controls

On your preamp you’ll find 3 knobs. Top centre for volume, top left is a blend knob used to add or remove frequencies that the face sensor is hearing and top right is a separate volume specific to the microphone.

The FC (filter contour) button allows for effortless switching between the PG3 configuration and an improved version of it’s predecessor, the 3-Way. There are also a battery light and sliders for treble, mids and bass response.
