The Cole Clark AN3EC-BLBL proved itself to be a clear and open sounding guitar. The all solid AAA Blackwood back, sides & top combination is not only beautiful but also delivers a well defined and accurate tone. Adding to the beauty the AN3 range wears some extra special visual adornments as subtly placed abalone inlays make this guitar stand out among its contemporaries. The Angel body size is essentially a grand auditorium size and therefore fits any kind of playing style. The 1.73″ / 44mm nut is comfortable for both open chords and more complicated chord arrangements. Important to mention that Cole Clark recommends not to play percussive pieces on the AN2EC-RDBL due to the sensitivity of the top.

Then we have the icing on the acoustic cake, Cole Clark’s new PG3 pick up system. 

The issue with most acoustic guitar pick ups is they sound little to nothing like the original tone of the guitar itself, this is what Cole Clark aims to fix with the PG3.
Different types of acoustic pick up systems have specific strengths and weaknesses, Cole Clark uses 3 different types and only relies on the strengths of each.
A Face Sensor for the mid range, an under bridge Piezo for the low end and an in body condenser microphone to capture the highs.
The player can fine tune all of this from the simple to use control panel to suit the room they’re playing in.
